Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana has been tagged as a risk-taker who picks high-concept films that become hits at the box office, as well as trigger conversations. He says he has never picks a film based on budget, scale or mounting.
“I have never chosen a film basis its budget, scale or mounting. For me, these aren’t the only important factors for a film to be perceived as a big film. I have only chosen films basis the bigness and uniqueness of its content,” Ayushmann said.
For Ayushmann, a “big film” should “trigger conversations on a national level”, and also “pull people into discussing issues that concern them”.
Ayushmann says a big film should make people ponder, raise important questions and offer solutions that matter to society.
He said: “I have always seen bigness through this lens and I’m happy with how I have selected my films because I have a personal ambition to do the best films that my industry is producing.”
As an entertainer, Ayushmann relates to films that are fresh, clutter-breaking and at the same time highly entertaining.
“Through my films, I would like to have a conversation with everyone about topics that are taboo, that people are not comfortable addressing despite it being important and are a little off-center. Honestly, I relate to these subjects much more because they are unique, multi-layered and offer something fresh to audiences,” he said.
Ayushmann added: “Today, the audience only want to see new, clutter-breaking content and, as an entertainer, my goal is to constantly try and wow them.”
