Ayushmann Khurrana's upcoming film Shoot The Piano Player has gone on floors! The actor took to social media to share the news as he admitted on skipping the sensational India vs Pakistan finals match. Directed by Sriram Raghavan, the film also stars Radhika Apte and Tabu. Now we already knew that the filmmaker was planning on bringing together these three actors for his film. Khurrana Instagrammed a pic from the set and captioned the image "I missed the match. But started something really exciting. Great day at office on day 1 in Pune. Sriram Raghavan's Shoot The Piano Player. #ShootBegins" Well, isn't that a good news! The shoot has begun and the first scene has also been shot!
Now while we checked the picture out, it says a lot about his character in the film. With the title being so grim, plus Raghavan's reputation to make dark films, we're convinced that it's going to be for a niche audience. From the pic, it's evident that Ayushmann plays a musician, wearing a slick hairdo and checkered shirt. Unlike his usual lover-boy image, here, we're going to see something different and possibly violent. The actor's fans will have to prepare themselves for this role as it is a rarity that he does such roles.
A report on Ahemdabad Mirror stated, "Radhika was signed recently but had been prepping for the part for a while. Ayushmann, who plays a musician in the film, started attending workshops two months ago, while Tabu kicked off prep last month. Radhika and Tabu will join Ayushmann in Pune for the first schedule this week," according to their source close to the development. While it is the first time Tabu and Ayushmann will be sharing screenspace, he same goes for Raghavan teaming up with his FTII batchmate, KU Mohanan. We hear Mohanan will be the cinematographer for the film. Shoot The Piano Player will roll a few scenes for 12 to 16 days after will, they'll be taking a break. It will later be resumed by July end, in Mumbai.
A release date hasn't been confirmed yet so as soon as we get a hint of that, we'll bring it to you. Till then, stay tuned to this space. Also, do tell us your thoughts on Ayushmann's slick new avatar.
