Ayushmann Khurana has recently stated to an Indian newspaper that he’s finally been able to carve his niche within Bollywood as an actor-singer. The 28 year old, who catapulted to stardom following the success of his debut film Vicky Donor (2012), stated the following to the Times of India. “I am not competitive at all. Every year there are at least three debutants, so always there is new lot of actors coming in industry. There is space for everyone.” “Earlier, it was not easy but today it is all about talent. Indian cinema has grown over a period of time today. Everything is transparent, filmmakers do auditions and the selection is based on who fits the bill. I think I have carved a niche as an actor-singer.”
Ayushmann’s latest outing is in Rohan Sippy’s Nautanki Saala which is in cinemas now. He spoke about his experience of making this film and how it was less nerve-wracking compared to Vicky Donor. “Last year I felt like I was giving an exam, I was nervous. But this year, I was kind of chilled out. I was confident about the film Nautanki Saala. It was a different film and we were hopeful the audience will like it. We all had worked hard for it and it feels good that people have liked it.”
Ayushmann will next be seen in a film produced by Yash Raj Films, with whom he has signed a three-film contract deal.
