Proving us right, today Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series announced a new film with R Madhavan, Khushali Kumar, Aparshakti Khurana and Darshan Kumaar. Directed by Kookie V Gulati, the film has gone on floors today and the company’s official Twitter handle announced it on social media. Khushali, who is Bhushan’s younger sister, will be essaying a strong character with shades of grey in her debut film.
Back in July 2019, the company had announced a slice-of-life comedy film titled Dahi Cheeni in which Khushali was supposed to play a lawyer while Madhvan was paired opposite her launch vehicle. Debutant filmmaker Ashween Neal Mani was supposed to direct but we at PeepingMoon.com informed that the project has been put on back burner and a new film is one the cards.
Shoot commences for our upcoming movie, starring @ActorMadhavan, @Aparshakti, @KhushaliKumar and @DarshanKumaar. Directed by @kookievgulati and produced by T-Series. Watch this space for more updates!

Now, with T-Series’ official announcement, our news has come out to be true. As per our sources, the new film will be a suspense thriller and is tentatively titled Dhoka. Following our news, the film has gone on floors today.
A source had informed us about Dahi Cheeni being shelved and said, “Dahi Cheeni was stopped after the film's final script didn't materialize as envisioned. Bhushan Kumar wants the best for his sister's debut and hence scrapped Dahi Cheeni after he found it going to a different route altogether. He has now planned a different film with the same cast but with a different direction team.”
