Ayushmann Khurana, who is now a huge star following the success of his debut film Vicky Donor (2012), has said that he always wanted to achieve success within the Indian film industry. He is proud of the positive impact which Vicky Donor has had, which acquired widespread acclaim from both the critics and the public during its initial release. “I always wanted to be an actor and make it big on the big screen. I never thought that the film would do well. I thought it would get decent critical acclaim, but it surpassed everyone’s expectations. So I think it is overwhelming,” said Ayushmann to the Indian press.
Having observed what types of films the audience is interested in today, the 28 year old actor says he would like to continue taking on realistic roles within a commercial setting. “The line between commercial and realistic cinema is getting blurred. In the commercial space, if you do realistic roles, it will be credible. The best example is Ranbir Kapoor who did Barfi! and Rockstar.”
Ayushmann is now preparing for his next film titled Nautanki Saala, which is a comedy directed by Rohan Sippy. It is scheduled to release in April, and Ayushmann has said that he is nervous about what the reaction will be towards his next film. “I think it is good to be nervous and that nervousness should be translated into good performance. But the success depends on the audience.”
