With back to back hits and ruling the big screen for a long time, Ayushmann Khurrana is at the top of his game right now. While the Box Office numbers speak volume about his fan following, he is also highly loved for his choice of meaty and unconventional parts.
Recently during the promotion of his next film Bala, Ayushmann opened up on his process and aim in choosing roles and how he makes the audience fall in love with his characters.
“From sparking a conversation on inequality in Article 15, to highlighting gender fluidity in society through Dream Girl and now discussing premature balding in men through Bala, I have only hoped to deliver films that start a discussion about life in society and among communities. For me, that’s the true meaning of cinema. Along with entertaining everyone thoroughly, it also needs to leave a message, it also needs to make people ponder and take home an idea. My journey in cinema has always been and will always be about this,” Ayushmann said.
Ayushmann had two releases in 2019, Article 15 and Dream Girl which were received very well by the audience and the actor wishes that love continues to come in. The actor said, “I live to play roles that are as diverse from each other. It excites me to become such varied characters and bring them and their struggles and complexities to life on screen. Creatively, it has been a thoroughly exciting year for me.”
“From playing a cop in Article 15 to playing a man who can impersonate a woman’s voice in Dream Girl and now playing a man who is suffering from premature balding, all these films have made me push myself as an actor to test newer horizons. I can’t be more thankful to the universe that I have got to do films that have stood out for its content, received so much love from audiences and also delivered the big numbers at the box office. I hope Bala too becomes hugely successful and receives similar love from everyone,” He added.
Bala starring Ayushmann, Bhumi Pednekar and Yami Gautam is set to release on November 7 after all the arguments and debates over the date due to its uncanny comparison with Sunny Singh starrer Ujda Chaman.
