After much delay in getting all the important aspects of the film in place – including the director and the cast – Manmarziyan is finally all set to kick start. After Mukkabaaz Anurag Kashyap and Aanand L Rai have once again joined hands for this film which has seen many delays since due to continuous changes in the cast. There have been rumours about Abhishek Bachchan being part of this two hero project which also starts Vicky Kaushal and Taapsee Pannu, and the official confirmation has come our way today.

Bachchan Jr. is a part of the project now and the crew is all kicked about setting the ball rolling for the film from February 2018 onwards. It is Abhishek’s birthday on Feb 5th and Manmarziyan seems to have comes as the perfect gift. We hear that the crew will first head to Kashmir to shoot some important scenes which require a backdrop with snowfall. Once this is canned, a major portion will be shot in Delhi.

Earlier, the film was announced with Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar as leads.Vicky Kaushal joined them later. However, only he remained of the original cast after the Shubh Mangal Saavdhan actors pulled out of the project. The news comes as a pleasant surprise especially for Abhishek Bachchan fans who haven’t seen him on the screen since Houseful 3 (2016). He was also supposed to be part of JP Dutta’s Paltan but opted out of the film the last minute, leaving fans waiting for another announcement. This is it then. Let’s hope this turns out to be a ‘der aaye durust aaye’ kind of a comeback for Abhishek and he succeeds in impressing fans yet again.
