Ayushmann Khurrana has had a stellar year the box office.
With two back-to-back hits, he has cemented his place in the league of Bollywood’s
extraordinary gentlemen.Ayushmann Khurrana impressed everyone with his
performance in Badhaai Ho and AndhaDhun.
There is nothing about Ayushmann Khurrana’s career that is
textbook. One of those few outsiders – the actor is from Chandigarh – who
managed to break into the nepotistic daddy-mommy network of the Hindi film
industry, Ayushmann’s debut was a film that most would see as a career death
wish Ayushmann, in fact, appears to have made the subject his mission
With perhaps the best delivered dialogue of the year (it
took practice), “Tere Liye to Mera Baap Hi Kaafi Hai,” he again proved why he
is the perfect amalgam of the middle class hero who is also a box office draw.Not
happy with just one stupendous performance this year, he delivered another in
Sriram Raghavan’s Andhadhun as a (maybe) blind pianist. The actor melded into
his character, making us believe once again that he has the foresight to choose
the right script.
In a year that had some spectacular performances by fine
actors such as Vicky Kaushal, Alia Bhatt, Pankaj Tripathi, Tabu and Manoj
Bajpayee, not to say veterans such as Rishi Kapoor, Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta,
Ayushmann has held his own. The actor himself chalks it up to his scripts. “My
gut has never let me down. I look at stories as a layman and an audience member;
I make the films that I would like to see myself. It feels great that my
choices have been accepted,” the actor said in an interview.
“The two directors I
worked with this year – Raghavan and Badhaai Ho’s Amit Sharma – are poles
apart. While Raghavan is spontaneous and non-filmy, Sharma is a perfectionist
and a versatile filmmaker,” Ayushmann says.If he had a great year in 2018, the
next year looks solid too. He plays a prematurely balding man in Bala, which
will be directed by Stree’s Amar Kaushik, and would be seen in and as Dream
Girl. “Now I want to win Best Actress awards too,” jokes Ayushmann. “This year
has been special for me. My choices were accepted and my films went bigger and
at the same time I got the reputation as a rule breaker. I want to do more
new-age content, look beyond conventional cinema. As long as the story is in
the zone and we are creating value and entertainment.”
