"We are starting that journey with this wonderful love story. It has a beautiful soundtrack, very different from what Abhishek has done before. Bhushan ji has been very encouraging and we are committed to deliver high quality content together," the producer said in a statement.
T-Series head honcho Bhushan said he is glad to come on board with Pragya to back the "unconventional love story."
"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.
The yet to be titled film is scheduled to go on floors in October this year.
