Ayushmann Khurrana is probably the first name that pops up is our heads today when it comes to doing quirky and out of the box roles with films like Article 15, AndhaDhun, Dum Laga Ke Haisha and so many more. And it is this unconventional choice of films of his that the Vicky Donor actor gives credit to for where is his in his professional space!
Speaking about his film choices and making a career out of them, Ayushamnn has been quoted saying, “I’ve always been attracted to realistic and out-of-the-box films such as Vicky Donor (2012), Dum Laga Ke Haisha (2015) or Andhadhun (2018).Whether it’s my next film Bala, where I play a person suffering from receding hairline,or Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, where I play a homosexual, both these films are very challenging. I will go ahead with something quirky which other actors may think twice before taking it up. I have made a career out of it.”
In his next release, where he essays the character who suffers from premature balding, Ayushamnn further told Hindustan Times, “There is no hero or a perfect man or woman in real life. We are all imperfect people having our own complexities. As individuals, we’re very complex characters. There is nothing called black and white. There is a grey area which exists in everybody. The idea is to glorify those imperfections and elevate them to a certain pedestal that it is okay to be imperfect.”
The actor’s next, Bala, directed by Amar Kaushik is scheduled for 7th November release. The film consists of an impressive cast with actors like Seema Pahwa, Javed Jaffrey and Saurabh Shukla apart from Ayushamnn Khurrana, Bhumi Pednekar and Yami Gautam who are the films leads.
Bala is set for a clash with Abhishek Pathak’s Ujda Chaman featuring Sunny Singh Nijjar which also revolves around the same plot of premature balding!
