Ayushmann Khurrana on SRK, being rejected by Karan Johar’s Dharma & not having work post Vicky Donor
Ayushmann Khurrana completes 10 years in the industry today. Can you believe it? Well, it seems like yesterday almost that we saw Ayushmann making a confident debut with vicky donor. But in this candid interview, he looks back at his decade long career and shares how he’s battled through all the ups and downs. He shares that he had no great movies coming his way after such a successful debut because the “industry didn’t know what to do with him”. He also adds how he, being an outsider, has faced several rejections and has always been stereotyped for his body type and looks. While his family stood by his side, his grandmom slapped him when he told her about taking up acting seriously. In this interview, he shares the untold story behind him becoming a star and taking the Road less travelled. Ayushmann also reveals how Shah Rukh Khan‘s journey has always inspired him to do better and how his first tryst with Karan Johar got him a connect at Dharma Productions only to be told that they “dont work with newcomers”. All this and more in this unplugged interview. Watch right here.
