‘I’m open to doing experimental roles’
Actor Ayushmann Khurrana (right), who played the role of a sperm donor in his debut film Vicky Donor (2012), is now keen on experimenting with his roles.
Asked if he wants to change his image of a good boy, the actor says, “Yes, I am open to doing experimental roles. In the film Bareilly Ki Barfi, I am playing a small town boy, who is very bullish by nature. I also dance madly in some scenes like what we do at our friends’ weddings.”
“And then, I have also worked in Sriram Raghavan’s next film. That character is very different from all the roles that I have played in films so far... so yes, I think the image is changing,” he adds. Asked about refusing to act in the sequel to Happy Bhaag Jayegi (2016), he says: “I was shooting with Sriram and, therefore, said no to that film. As an actor, we have certain limitation of dates and all... so, we cannot do everything at the same time. But that film is also interesting.”
He says he personally received a mixed response for his last release Meri Pyaari Bindu, and believes that somehow Baahubali 2: The Conclusion “ate up” the business of his film.
Asked about his reaction to the box office performance of the film, which released in May, he says, “Some people loved the film and some did not like it at all.”
