Actor Ayushmann Khurrana once again talked about how difficult it is to make it in Bollywood for an outsider. The actor talked to a news agency in his latest interview and revealed that even though he got the right support at the right time, he doesn’t know how many others are fortunate enough to receive the same. He said that everytime he delivered something on-screen, it pushed him to do better every single time.
He told IANS that he has been blessed with good filmmakers who wanted to collaborate with him. The actor was quoted saying, “It is not easy to be an outsider and find your feet in Bollywood. I feel that as an actor, I have been truly blessed that all my directors believed in me and trusted me with their films.” He added that he has also been lucky when it comes to choosing the ‘right kind of film.’ Ayushmann believes that content is the king today and he is glad his choices are being appreciated by the audience. He took the example of his films and said that most of his projects from the past have addressed different subjects and gave something unique to the audience.
Ayushmann further called him a ‘risk-taker.’ He said that even though it used to feel quite risky initially, he now considers it as his USP. The actor, who has worked in successful films like Badhaai Ho, AndhaDhun, and Vicky Donor among others, revealed that he wants the subjects of his films to be relevant for years. He was quoted saying. “Being an outsider, the first film was most important and the film confirmed by belief that novel subjects will always work. Seven years later I reiterate that content which is different will still have more takers than the conventional stuff.”
He acknowledged that the audience have changed and therefore, the need for an unconventional content is more than ever. Talking about experimenting with his characters, he said he loves going for different styles – sometimes classic and sometimes casual.
