Someone in heaven must be smiling at the announcement of Abhishek Kapoor’s next project which goes by the vapid title of Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, whatever that means. The project was meant to star Sushant Singh Rajput. Right after they completed Kedarnath, director Abhishek Kapoor and his leading man Sushant Singh Rajput began discussing their next project. But then God had other plans. Sushant is now no more.
And Ayushmann Khurrana has taken over the project. Director Abhishek Kapoor’s journey with Sushant was most interesting. Kapoor launched Sushant in Hindi cinema with the cult hit Kai Po Che. But when Sushant refused to do Kapoor’s next film Fitoor (Sushant didn’t believe in the script) Kapoor went to Aditya Roy Kapur. Fitoor was a massive flop. And Abhishek Kapoor mended his bridges with Sushant to make the hit Kedarnath. ALSO READ: Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui: Ayushmann Khurrana And Vaani Kapoor's Film Gets A Quirky Title
Can Abhishek Kapoor make a hit film without Sushant Singh Rajput in Chandigarh Kare Ashiqui? Well, that remains to be seen. Meanwhile, Ayushmann does seem like an apt choice for the part, considering he hails from Chandigarh.
