His next, the quirky Shoojit Sircar film, sees him team up with Amitabh.
Ayushmann has been a huge fan of Big B since he was a kid and of course, he is ecstatic to learn from the icon. He is grateful to Sircar for casting him alongside the megastar.
"Ever since I teamed up with Shoojit sir for 'Vicky Donor', I have only been wanting to work again with a genius like him. He is a master storyteller and he has a very distinct and a unique voice in Bollywood," Ayushmann said in a statement.
"He gave me my big break and I will always be indebted to him for 'Vicky Donor', a film that made it possible for me to chase my dreams in this cut-throat industry. I'm delighted that he wanted to cast me in 'Gulabo Sitabo'."
He also thanked Sircar for making his lifelong dream to work with Amitabh come true. "It's a jackpot for me and I'm still pinching myself that I will have the incredible opportunity to share screen space with Bachchan Sir and learn from him," said the "Bala" actor.
Ayushmann feels he will become a better actor after working with Big B.
"As an actor, I look to constantly better myself and 'Gulabo Sitabo' will certainly make me a better actor because I'm not going to let this opportunity of learning from the best actor of our industry go. "I'm equally thrilled and anxious about our first scene together. I think I will be a huge fanboy walking into the set," he added.
