"Like Sushant, Bhumi too plays a dacoit. She plays his love interest and gave the nod a month ago. The film will be shot in the Chambal ravines and will roll early next year. Abhishek and his team has already begun scouting for locations," Mumbai Mirror earlier quoted a source as saying.
Of co-starring with Sushant, Bhumi, who was lasts seen in Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, said, "He is the main lead in the film and he is such a phenomenal actor. So, I am really excited to see how everything unfolds." Bhumi's Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, headlined by Akshay Kumar, was a blockbuster at the box office.
