Ayushmann Khurrana has the image of an unconventional actor and he recently gives credit of the same to Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh. Ayushmann Khurrana is one of the most versatile and talented actors of the industry and he has made a place for himself in Bollywood, thanks to his distinctive choice of films and roles which are not conventional and rather the ones breaking stereotypes and setting new standards.

He is a great actor, brilliant singer, superb anchor and what not; overall he is a complete package of entertainment. He recently had a session at FICCI Frames where he revealed how he redefined the new age hero and his journey as an unconventional actor.

From choosing scripts and roles to challenges in the path of breaking stereotypes, Ayushmann talks about his struggles and how he cemented his place in the industry. He has shown the world that success can be achieved if you are determined, wish to take risks and push boundaries.

The actor also discloses why he opts for unconventional roles, “I think in every era there has been space for every kind of character, every kind of actor. In the 2010s there was a definite void for an actor who was also a character, especially, around the time Vicky Donor happened (2012). The protagonist was there in an unconventional film which did commercially well. Ranbir Kapoor had just made his debut.

At the time there was this void of actors in their 20s as most of them were in their 30s and 40s.” Ayushmann goes on to say, “When Ranbir made his debut, I was like, ‘Yeah to aa gaya, ab mein kya karunga?’ Then Ranveer Singh came into the industry in 2010/11 and again it made me think… ‘Yeh bhi aa gaya ab mein kya karunga?’ I had no option but to take the unconventional path and fortunately, it worked for me. I was an anchor on television, and Shoojit Sircar saw something in me (for Vicky Donor).

I didn’t even audition for that film, and it all started there.” Ayushmann says that he is obsessed with the whole story of the movie and not just his own character,
“In my films, I am not really obsessed with my own character, I am obsessed with the whole story.

I may not be the main driver of the story, the characters around me are also very strong, whether it is Jaideep Ahlawat in An Action Hero, Rajkummar Rao in Bareilly Ki Barfi, Gajraj Rao and Neena Gupta in Badhaai Ho or Bhumi Pednekar in Dum Laga Ke Haisha.”

Ayushmann also says that he will like to explore the genre of horror comedy, “A horror comedy might happen soon. I am excited and yes it will have that quirk in it. It has to be different, otherwise it won’t excite me.”

On the work front, Ayushmann’s upcoming flick is “Dream Girl 2” that will release on 25th August will also star Ananya Panday.
