Bollywood's talented actor Ayushmann Khurrana is all set to play a scientist in an upcoming movie. He will be playing the eminent Maharashtrian scientist Shivkar Talpade. The actor is very excited about this as this is a big opportunity for him in his early stage of career.
"I am doing a biopic and it's always interesting to be a part of such films. I always wanted to do a biopic. I am happy that I am doing a good mix of films at such an early stage of my career. Our scriptwriter is a Marathi and he gives me tips to learn Marathi as it is really a difficult task for a Punjabi," said Ayushmann.
Ayushmann is currently taking Marathi lessons so that he will be able to fit into the scientist's shoes. Talpade, the famous scientist is believed to have constructed and flown India's first unmanned airplane even before the Wright brothers.
This upcoming biopic is directed by debutant director Vibhu Puri and produced by Guneet Monga. The makers have revealed that the film's shooting begin from early next year.
Apart from this biopic, Ayushmann has just finished shooting for a Yash Raj film which is titled as Bewakoofiyan. He is paired opposite Sonam Kapoor in this movie.
