After working together on films like Shahid, City Lights, Aligarh and Omerta, Rajkummar Rao and Hansal Mehta are teaming up for their fifth collaboration, which is touted to be a comedy. The movie stars Nushrat Bharucha as the leading lady.
Rajkummar Rao and the 'Dream Girl' actress had earlier shared screen space in Dibakar Banerjee's 2010 film, Love Sex Aur Dhokha.
Coming back to Hansal Mehta's film, the project which was earlier titled 'Turram Khan' has now got a new name. The Rajkummar-Nushrat starrer has been renamed 'Chhalaang'.
Rajkummar Rao took to his Twitter page to share the news and wrote, "Main aur Nushrat Ab Maarenge Chhalaang! Our next film directed by @mehtahansal sir is now named "Chhalaang". See you in theatres on 31st Jan, 2020!"

Chhalaang is collaboratively produced by Ajay Devgn, Luv Ranjan and Ankur Garg. Ajay Devgn too tweeted about the change in the film's title and wrote, "Rajkummar Rao and Nushrat Bharucha's next film directed by Hansal Mehta is now Chhalaang. See them in theatres on 31st Jan, 2020!"
