Savarkar biopic: Ayushmann Khuranna to star in Swatantraveer Savarkar?
Recently, it was announced that Mahesh Manjrekar will be directing a film on Vinayak Damodar Savarkar, also commonly known as Swatantraveer Savarkar. Sandeep Ssingh is producing the film, which is being planned on a grand scale. There have been reports about the makers approaching actors like Randeep Hooda, Ayushmann Khuranna and Rajkummar Rao to play the lead role.
Latest buzz is that the makers have got Ayushmann to play Savarkar’s role. Since it is big budget film, the team is keen to get a bankable star like him on board. However, it must be noted that neither the actor nor the makers have made an official announcement yet.
Meanwhile, Ayushmann has wrapped the shooting of two of his films ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ and ‘Anek’. The former is a rom-com directed by Abhishek Kapoor of ‘Rock On’ fame. Vaani Kapoor plays the female lead in it. ‘Anek’ is an action-thriller that marks Ayushmann’s reunion with Anubhav Sinha after the success of ‘Article 15’.
