MUMBAI: Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar were seen together for the first time on the big screen in Dum Lagake Haisha. The duo created a stir with their unusual chemistry and later even impressed the audience again in Shubh Mangal Saavdhan.
Ayushmann and Bhumi are now set to collaborate for the third time on Amar Kaushik’s Bala. Amar Kaushik’s last release was Stree starring Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor that went on to become a superhit, thus the audience is also eagerly waiting to watch what the director has in store next. Talking about working with Bhumi for the third time Ayushmann said, “Bhumi and I have a great chemistry together because of our equation and I’m glad audiences also loved us in our previous two films which became big hits. Being a hit jodi definitely adds to the pressure of delivering good work and I’m extremely confident of that film’s script will connect with audiences across the world given its universal theme. Bhumi is an exceptionally talented actress and it is always fun to work with her. We have previously given people something new and quirky to see and Bala will not be an exception because of its storyline. I’m hoping audiences will give us a lot much love in our third film together.”
Bhumi too revealed how excited she is to collaborate with Ayushmann, she said, “Ayushmann and I love slice of life films and I’m super excited to collaborate with him for the third time. We have been loved immensely in our previous two films and it gives me a lot of confidence that with Bala we will again give people another fun film to watch. I think audiences expect our pairing to do off-centre, quirky films and it’s a great equity to carry forward with Bala, a film that again takes on societal stereotypes in a hilarious manner. Ayushmann is a powerhouse actor and he always gets the best out of me. So, I can’t wait to start the film.”
