Ayushmann Khurrana is all set to star in his first biopic as the dreamy Hawaizaada. After making a smashing debut with Vicky Donor, the actor did fumble a little with Nautanki Saala and Bewakoofiyaan but looks like he is now making an informed choice for his upcoming projects.
From playing a nerdy scientist in Hawaizaada to a UP wala in YRF’s next, Ayushmann Khurrana talks to Koimoi about his choice of films and why he needed a image change.
Was it a concious effort to have an image change?
After Vicky Donor, Vibhu Puri offered me this amazing story of an unsung hero. The way he has fictionalised it, the way he has taken the creative liberty and added his own flavour to the story of a guy who made world’s first aircraft is incredible. So I think there was no plan, but, yes, this will be an image change by default because I was playing quintessential North Indian guy till now and this time I am playing a Maharashtrian.
So, what kind of roles you are expecting to come your way after Hawaaizaada?
I think we should talk only about Hawaaizaada now, but I have done a film called Dum Lagaake Haisha, and I am playing a (UP waala) UP guy, so even that’s also way apart from the characters that I have played till now.
Directed by Vibhu Puri, the film is slated to release on 30th January, 2015. Catch Hawaizaada‘s Trailer Here
