‘I’m open to do­ing experimental roles’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - IANS

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.”
