Ayushmann's next release undergoes upgrade

By Subhash K. Jha, December 24, 2012 - 10:46 hrs IST

One doesn't have to be a fortune-teller to see which way Ayushmann Khurrana's career is heading. Having lately bagged a Yashraj Film with Sonam Kapoor, we now hear that the Vicky Donor actor's next release Nautanki Saala has been postponed for what a source close to the project describes as a "serious upgrade".

Scheduled for release on February 8, the film will now open in May 2013, thereby buying for itself a 4-month window to make changes in keeping with Ayushmann's growing equity in the film industry.

One hears that the plot is being re-structured, the film is being re-edited and extra songs are being added.

Says a source, "Suddenly the project is much larger than it was when it started. To begin with, Nautanki Saala was meant to be a smaller comedy about two friends played by Ayushmann and Kunal Roy Kapoor with the latter playing in the words of an insider "a pukka pile-on" who sponges on Ayushmann's hospitality. Now, since the shooting started Ayushmann's box office potential has grown. The project is being re-designed accordingly."

Among other things, the film's original music-content is also being re-designed. One hears there would be 8-9 songs on the film now, many of them sung in Ayushmann's own voice.

Ayushmann Khurana admitted the film's release is indeed being postponed for changes.

Though he refrained from specifying those changes Ayushmann did say, "We are working towards making it a premium product. For one, we are shooting several extra music videos for each of the songs."
