In Andhadhun, Ayushmann played the role of a blind piano player, who faced some mysterious events in his life. It goes from being a comedy to a thriller after a murder takes place. Radhika was seen as Ayushmann’s ladylove whereas Tabu played the role of a star wife.
The trailer of the movie received good response from the audience. The positive word of mouth might have worked in the film’s favour but latest reports also suggest that Andhadhun has been leaked online.
The project is helmed by Sriram Raghavan, who earlier directed Badlapur and Johnny Gaddaar. Andhadhun is bankrolled by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Matchbox Pictures. It is fighting the box office battle with LoveYatri featuring Salman Khan’s brother-in-law Aayush Sharma and Warina Hussain.
On a related note, Ayushmann has some good projects in his kitty. He will be seen sharing the screen space with actress Sanya Malhotra in Badhaai Ho. The movie is all set to hit the screens on October 19.
