- Sushant Singh will spend time with former dacoits for his next film
- Sushant will feature in Abhishek's film, co-starring Bhumi Pednekar
- Sushant is currently filming Kedarnath with Sara Ali Khan
Actress Bhumi Pednekar will share the screen space with Sushant in the film and will also play a dacoit and his love interest while actor Manoj Bajpayee will feature in a pivotal role.
"The cast will also have to work on the Bundelkhandi dialect. Abhishek is leaving for Chambal on January 8 for a two-month schedule. This will be followed by a shorter schedule in Mumbai at a later stage," the source added.
Of Bhumi's preparation for the film, a source earlier told DNA: "Bhumi has chosen dusty suburban fields to swanky gyms as her training ground and her workout regime now includes walking with buckets filled with water on her head under the boiling sun, sweeping and cleaning floors, walking barefoot in dusty fields and lanes, grinding wheat, among other rigorous household chores that rural women in India do."
Abhishek Chaubey is known for making films like Ishqiya and Udta Punjab. Bhumi Pednekar was last seen in R S Prasanna's Shubh Mangal Saavdhan while Sushant will next feature in Kedarnath, co-starring Saif Ali Khan's daughter Sara Ali Khan.
