"Dum Laga Ke Haisha is a quirky and different film. I'm playing a simpleton from Uttar Pradesh, lives in Haridwar, Rishikesh...is an uneducated person and a failure in life. He runs an audio cassettes shop and the film is set in 1994," Ayushmann said at a promotional event on Tuesday.
Talking further about his character, Ayushmann said, "He is a fan of singer Kumar Sanu. The film's music is fantastic. It is a fun film."
Directed by Sharat Katariya, Dum Laga Ke Haisha is set to hit theatres on February 27. It stars debutante Bhumi Pednekar as a female lead. The film tells the story of Prem Prakash Tiwari, played by Ayushmann, who unwillingly marries a fat girl.
Bhumi Pednekar, who is making her debut under the Yash Raj Films' banner with this film will hold a special screening of the film for her family and friends on Friday, when it hits the screens. Bhumi's near and dear ones from across the globe will join her to celebrate her debut film.
