Bollywood has witnessed dozens of cop-drama over the period of times, and we have recently heard that Rohit Shetty and Salman Khan will be united for the first time for an action packed-cop-drama. There is another cop-drama, which has been announced by filmmaker Anubhav Sinha, who is all set to cast Ayushmann Khurrana in the lead role in his upcoming film.
According to Mumbai Mirror reports, the film is set in Uttar Pradesh and will go floors in mid-2019 once Ayushmann Khurrana concludes his current project. The film is reportedly named ‘Kanpur Dehaat’ and makers of the film are looking at a release date during the last leg of the year.
“A chunk of the film will be shot in Kanpur. Like other Ayushmann starrers, this one too is high on content and on a socially-relevant topic. It is based on a true incident and Ayushmann will play a cop for the first time,” a source told Mumbai Mirror.
Earlier, when Ayushmann was asked about the project, he had neither confirmed nor denied and told the leading tabloid, “Yes, I am in talks with Anubhav for a film but we have still not finalised on a lot of stuff.”

The film is said to be a comedy entertainer and is being directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa who is known for writing films like ‘Bhoomi’ and ‘Freaky Ali’.
Talking about 2018, it proved to be a good one for Ayushmann as he delivered two back-to-back hits in ‘AndhaDhun’ and ‘Badhaai Ho’.
