Every Yashraj hero seems to be mastering one accent or the other. While Aditya Roy Kapur desperately grappled with the Urdu in Habib Faisal's Daawat-e-Ishq, Sushant Singh Rajput is trying to sound as Bengali as he can in Dibakar Bannerjee's Detective Byomkesh.
Ayushmann Khurrana who had to learn Marathi for Vibhu Puri's Bambai Fairytale is on to a difference tongue-trip now.
Ayushmann is getting a hang of the Bhojpuri of his naÃ¯ve-as-hell character from Hardwar in Sharat Katariya's Dum Laga Ke Haisha.
Says a source close to the project, "The film is being shot in Hardwar. Ayushmann plays a simpleton named Prem and his very clever wife is played by newcomer Bhumi Pednekar. Ayushman's Prem is nothing like Salman Khan's Prem in Sooraj Barajatya's films. Ayushmann is modelled on Raj Kapoor in Shri 420. He is naÃ¯ve and lacks worldly wisdom to the point of being a social misfit."
The very talented Sanjay Mishra who plays Ayushmann's father says, "I played a character who is cut off from duniyadaari in Aankhon Dekhi. Now I am seeing Ayushmann play the same. Bahot mazaa aa raha hai."
Says Ayushmann, "It is a film set in Western UP. It's a mix of Khadi Boli and Bhojpuri."
Ayushmann says he has never played such a naÃ¯ve character before. "I play dumb. But my wife is very smart."
