Ayushmann Khurrana was scared of Amitabh Bachchan before he reached the sets of Gulabo Sitabo for THIS reason

On taking a risk with such unique ideas in Bollywood the actor said that more than anything else, everyone needs such concepts in India more as we are imperfect people. We have to put the common man on the pedestal and give him the confidence that it’s okay to be imperfect.

Ayushmann Khurrana, who was last seen in Dream Girl is all set for the release of his upcoming film Bala with Bhumi Pednekar and Yami Gautam. The actor is currently busy with the promotions of his film. In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, Ayushmann spoke about choosing unique and clutter-breaking concepts. The actor was asked whether is it happening organically or is he purposely looking for such content? He said that it’s both ways! He has always looked for unique, clutter-breaking ideas because more than anything, such concepts excite him. Even if he is a part of a masala film or it falls in the ‘generic fare’ category, there has to be something unique in it. Bala has been very special and is close to his heart and he has actually given his heart and soul to it.

On taking a risk with such unique ideas in Bollywood the actor said that more than anything else, everyone needs such concepts in India more as we are imperfect people. We have to put the common man on the pedestal and give him the confidence that it’s okay to be imperfect. It’s too far-fetched when one guy beats 10 people as that doesn’t happen in real life. When a regular guy – who has his complexes – is portrayed on screen and gets glorified in a very realistic manner then a regular person gets confident in life. Ayushmann feels an important movement of sorts is taking place in Indian cinema when the common man is put on the pedestal that makes one feel about himself.

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

It’s a wrap! #GulaboSitabo

A post shared by Ayushmann Khurrana (@ayushmannk) on

Further on working with Mr. Amitabh Bachchan and Shoojit Sircar for Gulabo Sitabo, Ayushmann said that it was great working with Shoojit-da again [after his debut film, Vicky Donor]. It was like a homecoming of sorts. Shoojit makes everything – including filmmaking – so easy. 

He further said, "Unke set pe lagta hai, ‘waah, kitna aasaan hai sub kucch.’ As for working with Big B, he is an absolute living legend. It was a fantastic learning experience. Unfortunately, I missed his Diwali party as I was in Chandigarh. I was a bit scared before I reached the sets. But then I saw him in a completely different avatar [for the film] and I couldn’t recognise him (laughs). He didn’t look like Mr. Bachchan that I know of and I’m okay with it as that gave me a lot of confidence.”

Directed by Amar Kaushik and produced by Dinesh Vijan, Bala is about a man living in Kanpur who is suffering from alopecia, and the story is about his lack of confidence and the societal pressure that comes with balding. The movie is all set to hit theaters on 8th November 2019.
