Mumbai: Ayushmann Khurrana has started training for the role of a cross functional athlete in the untitled film being directed by Abhishek Kapoor. The film stars Vaani Kapoor and is being produced by Pragya Kapoor of Guy In The Sky Pictures and Bhushan Kumar of T-Series.

The yet-to-be-titled film is scheduled to go on the floors in October.

Pragya said this is the first of several collaborations being planned with Bhushan Kumar's T Series. "This is a wonderful love story. It has a beautiful soundtrack, very different from what Abhishek has done before. Bhushanji and I are committed to delivering high quality content," the producer said in a statement.

T-Series head honcho Bhushan said, "Abhishek with this film will create an unconventional love story with a new jodi of Ayushmann and Vaani who are extremely talented artists. It's always been a pleasure working with Ayushmann and with this film he will yet again surprise the audience with his work," Bhushan said.

Other than the Ayushmann-Vaani film, Bhushan and Pragya will also produce two more projects, including the one based on the Pulwama terror attack.
