Man of many talents Ayushmann Khurrana has been the talk of the town since his National Award win for his role in ‘Andhadhun’. Over the years he has taken on several unconventional roles that won him critical acclaim and even catapulted him to box office success. With his latest comedy ‘Dream Girl’ set to its release, the actor and singer, in a recent interview, expressed his desire to further explore new genres.
Admitting that he is currently treading a fine line between contentment and ambition, he, however, said, that there’s a “need to do more.” Despite the rewards and awards, he said that there is still a desire to explore more.
Ayushmann went on to add that he often takes on quirky slice-of-life films as they always offer something unique. At the same time, he says that such themes have not been tested before in Indian cinema and offer a lot for people to get excited.
The star also said that there is a vested interest for him to take up a massy rom-com like ‘Dream Girl’.
"I'm all for great commercial cinema that allows me to reach out to a much wider audience base and engage with them. I realised that by doing such masala movies, I'm actually widening the reach for my other films that I often do to spark a social conversation," he said. "If they like me in such commercial Bollywood cinema, they will most probably come back to see a project that could be extremely relevant and topical and important for people to see and ponder over. That would give me the fulfilment I seek by being an artiste. So yes, there is a vested interest for me to do 'Dream Girl' because by doing so, I can pull a lot more people for my socially relevant films," added the actor.
Ayushmann, known for movies like ‘Andhadhun’, ‘Badhaai Ho’ and ‘Article 15’, calls ‘Dream Girl’ his most commercial, masala film to date.
"I have always experimented with genres, with roles and scripts and I wanted to do something a little bit out there this time and have a lot of fun with it," he said.
