Not long ago, the leading lady of the upcoming rom-com Bareilly Ki Barfi, Kriti Sanon had taken to social media to reveal that they have finally wrapped the film set in North India. While the makers have managed to give us a glimpse of the characters that the three lead characters would be playing in the film, we know that Ayushmann Khurrana, who is one of them, is a printing press owner. Here’s a glimpse of the actor engrossed in his work.
From what we hear, Ayushmann Khurrana did extensive research for the film and learnt everything about printing press for his role. His character in the film is named as Chirag Dubey who owns a printing press in Lucknow. To get into the skin of the character, the talented actor learned several aspects of Printing from the real owner of a press named Mr. Jaggi who has been living in Lucknow from the last 40 years.
Talking about the experience Ayushmann said, “I used to observe him to understand his body language and how he managed the 10-12 people working with him. I didn't get into the technicalities and only know how to switch the machines on and off.”
Ayushmann further revealed that Mrs. Jaggi cooked for him every alternate day. He added in exultation, "She would send Sarson Ka Saag and Rajma Chawal which I loved. Since we were shooting in Lucknow I also binged on Tunday Kebab.”
To learn about printing press he had also visited a printing press owned by his father’s friend. While he was in Lucknow Ayushmann got a visit from Mr. Jaggi's son too at the press. Ayushmann said “He knows I am active on social media and introduced me to an app which people in the West use for blogging.”
Besides Ayushmann and Kriti, Bareilly Ki Barfi also stars Rajkummar Rao and is directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari.
