The first film to be produced independently by Sharma under the YRF banner will be "Dum Laga Ke Haisha". It is to be directed Sharat Katariya and features Ayushmann Khurrana in the lead, said a statement.

The film, slated to release this year, will go on floors in early February.

So far, YRF movies has only had either its founder, late filmmaker Yash Chopra, or now head honcho Aditya Chopra, credited as its producer.
