After a successful debut with Vicky Donor, Ayushmann Khurrana achieved three back-to-back flops – Nautanki Saala, Bewakoofiyaan and Hawaizaada. In an interview, he revealed that at that time a director told him that he was not “selling”.
“One of the filmmakers said to me, ‘Ayushmann, you are not selling. I said no to a movie and they said, ‘Ayushmann, you’re not selling, why do you say no to this movie?’ “Upkaar jaise kar rahe ho, ki yeh film kar lo (It was as if he did me a favor by offering me the film),” he told RJ Siddharth Kannan.
With the release of Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Ayushmann is back. However, he took his time to choose his next project. “I waited two years after Dum Laga Ke Haisha, I did not have a release for two years. “I was just waiting for the right movie,” he said.
Ayushmann won the National Award for Best Actor in 2019 for his performance in Andhadhun. He shared the award with Vicky Kaushal, who was honored for Uri: The Surgical Strike.
