An entertaining comical sports drama Chhalaang revolves around Manjit Hooda, a carefree PT teacher who has to prove himself in order to win over his love and respect by competing with his colleague Akash Singh who is good in areas where he lacks. The events that follow forms the crux of the story. The film stars Rajkummar Rao and Nushrat Bharucha in the lead role with Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub, Suarabh Shukla, and Satish Kaushik in supporting roles. The Principal photography began in late 2018 and was filmed in Mumbai's Film City. The screenplay was written by Luv Ranjan, Aseem Arrora, and Zeishan Quadri and it was directed by Hansal Mehta. The film was produced by Ajay Devgn, Luv Ranjan, Ankur Garg, and Bhushan Kumar for T-Series Films, Luv Films, and Ajay Devgn FFilms and was distributed by Amazon Prime Video. Initially, the film was titled Turram Khan but later the name was changed to Chhalaang meaning jump. The music was composed by Hitesh Sonik, Guru Randhawa–Vee, Yo Yo Honey Singh, and Vishal–Shekhar and the lyrics were written by Luv Ranjan, Guru Randhawa, Yo Yo Honey Singh, Alfaaz, Hommie Dilliwala, and Panchhi Jalonvi. Adept cinematography by Eeshit Narain and clear cut editing by Akiv Ali and Chetan Solanki makes it a watchable movie. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this movie which was scheduled to release in theatres was released on 13 November 2020 on Amazon Prime Video.
