Ayushmann Khurrana is currently soaring high as his last flick Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is doing great on box office. The movie that hit the theatres on Friday has managed to get a good response from both the audiences and film critics. With his performance as a gay, Ayushamann yet again proved that he is a versatile actor.
Recently, the actor was spotted in Hindustan Shikhar Samagam 2020, where he revealed that he rejected 5-6 films to pick the right project for his Bollywood debut as he had to make sure that his first film was special. The actor, who made his debut with 2012 film Vicky Donor said, “I knew that being an outsider, I wouldn’t get a second chance.”
Speaking about Nepotism, the actor said, “Star kids who are successful, are genuinely talented. They get their first break but then they have to live up to a benchmark. If I give my 50%, people say I have done it by myself. If star kids have a potential of 80% and even if they give their 100%, people aren’t satisfied.” The Andhadhun actor revealed that while going on tours for theatre shows, the actor used to sing on-board the Paschim Express and received money from passengers for his Goa trip. He said in humour, “I am a trained singer because I used to sing in a train.”
Ayushmann also revealed that he himself approached the makers for two films: Andhadhun and Article 15 as “one must not feel shy of asking for work.” He confessed learning to play a piano for Andhadhun and playing it without looking at it was the most difficult part while working on the film. He also added that he would like to do a film on social issues after every 2-3 commercial films.
Ayushmann had shot to fame by winning the second season of adventure reality show, Roadies. The actor shared how he was very different from contestants seen on reality shows these days. He agreed that he was much different in his real-life from his personality on the show and said, “Every creative person has latent aggression which is to be channelised through art or something else. We were boring contestants and voted out anyone who was missing his mom.”
Talking about his last film, helmed by Hitesh Kewalya, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan portrays a commercial gay love story on the big screen. The film is produced by Aanand L Rai, Bhushan Kumar, and Himanshu Sharma and also stars Jitendra Kumar, Neena Gupta, Gajraj Rao and Maanvi Gagroo.
