'Hawaaizaada' is based on the life of scientist Shivkar Bapuji Talpade, who is believed to have built India's first unmanned airplane.
"After 'Vicky' Donor, Vibhu Puri (director) offered me this amazing story of an unsung hero. The way he has fictionalised it, the way he has taken the creative liberty and added his own flavour to the story of a guy who made world’s first aircraft is incredible.
"So, I think there was no plan, but, yes, this will be an image change by default because I was playing quintessential north Indian guy till now and this time I am playing a Maharashtrian,” Ayushmann said at the trailer launch of "Hawaizaada" here Tuesday.
The film also stars Mithun Chakraborty and Pallavi Sharda. It will hit screens Jan 30, 2015
