Actor, comedian and show host Aparshakti Khurana has won hearts with his endearing performance in the surprise hit Stree. In 2019, the young Khurana has an interesting line up of movies. From Lukka Chuppi to Jabariya Jodi, Aparshakti has his hands full with work. Furthermore, BollywoodLife has learnt that the 31-year-old has bagged another plum project to add to his kitty. Currently seen in a comedy show on TV, Khurana has signed a movie as the male lead. Our reliable source reveals that the project is helmed by writer-turned-director Ashish Aryan. Titled Kanpuriya, the movie will be his feature directorial debut.
Interestingly, Khurana’s current TV show which is on air also comprises Kanpur in its title. So, after being in Kanpur on the small screen, he will return to the city for the big screen. Seems like a fixation or a mere coincidence? Talking about the movie, the source adds, “It is a light-hearted slice-of-life film based in Kanpur. Aparshakti will play a small-town boy and he does so with a lot of perfection.” The story will revolve around a man, (apparently played by Aparshakti) who will try to bring literacy to his village in Kanpur through his quirky yet social enterprise. However, other cast members of the film are yet to be finalised.
