Mum­bai: Ac­tor Ayush­mann Khur­rana says “Dum Laga Ke Haisha”, which has been cho­sen as the Best Hindi Film at the 63rd Na­tional Film Awards, helped him in get­ting “re­spect and cred­i­bil­ity” in the in­dus­try.

“I think I got the re­spect and cred­i­bil­ity as an ac­tor af­ter ‘ Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ be­cause in my first film ‘ Vicky Donor’ I was play­ing my­self, a Pun­jabi,” Ayush­mann told IANS. The ac­tor said he had to walk an ex­tra mile for the Sharat Katariyadi­rected “Dum Laga Ke Haisha” as he had to change his per­sona for his char­ac­ter in the ro­man­tic com­edy film. “In ‘Dum Laga Ke…’ I had to change my di­alect and body lan­guage. I have never stayed in Ut­tar Pradesh. Khari boli (di­alect) was not that easy. It was not com­ing nat­u­rally to me and I was play­ing com­pletely some­body else. So ‘ Dum Laga Ke…’ got me re­spect as an ac­tor,” added the “Nau­tanki Saala!” ac­tor. Ayush­mann, 31, says he is glad that the Na­tional Film Awards jury con­nected to the movie. “The Na­tional Award is the most cov­eted and cred­i­ble award. It is a film with a big heart and I am glad that it con­nected with the jury and peo­ple as well,” he added. In­dian Ex­press
