Actor Ayushmann Khurrana made his big Bollywood film by choosing a gutsy and groundbreaking role in vicky donor. The concept of the film that was released in 2012 was quite new to the audience. However, a newcomer essaying the role was even more challenging. But much to everyone’s surprise, the film turned out to be successful but not for Ayushmann’s career. That’s right. In an exclusive interview with Bollywood Bubble, Ayushmann Khurrana revealed that after Vicky Donor, he was not getting any good scripts. For two-three years, the actor had nothing on his plate as he thought people were not unconventional scripts.

Ayushmann told us, “Actually, at that time I think Bollywood didn’t know what to do with me. I started with the film, it had a certain benchmark and I was not getting any good scripts after that because you know those kinds of scripts are rare. Nobody used to write quirky taboo-breaking subjects or unconventional scripts which were also palatable to the masses, middle of the Road cinema, it evolved later on but for two-three years I was doing nothing. I had to choose whatever from whatever I was getting, I had to make the choices at least saal mein toh ek do film toh karunga na main.

The Bala actor further mentioned that he was not confident about any of his films but was confident about Dum Laga Ke Haisha which also stars Bhumi Pednekar. Khurrana further told us, “I had made those choices that didn’t work, I was never confident about these things. I was never confident about my next three films I was only confident about Dum Laga Ke Haisha and it worked yeah. It showed and I realised that I should only go with my guts and should not ask people because I was taking multiple opinions from multiple people. I was like I’ll just go with my guts. After the success of Dum Laga Ke Haisa, I realised that I will only cope with my intuition and till now it’s been working but at the same time I have to evolve, things are changing.

As the actor has completed 10 years in the industry, Ayushmann even spoke about his feeling as he said, “I have seen so much in the past ten years, it just feels like yesterday. It feels like I have just begun, it’s this piece that I’ve just begun. I learn every day I evolve every day so I just have this learner’s right license with me always for life so I don’t think it’s a long time.”
