MUMBAI: The year 2019 has to be a special one for the versatile actor Ayushmann Khurrana. The Vicky Donor actor has delivered three back to back super hit films, Article 15, Dream Girl and the very recent Bala, that follows another two mega-hits Andhadhun and Badhai Ho released last year.
Khurrana, however, calls the year as an "eye-opener". The star is humbled after getting love from all corners. He said, "It has been an eye-opening year for me. This year has bolstered my belief that I should only back content that is extremely fresh, disruptive, unique and experimental because audience expects that from me. It has been humbling to get the kind of love and adulation from audience as well as from critics."
Ayushmann's film has always maintained a balance between entertainment and social message and he will be making sure to continue the same. He said, "I strive to find films which I feel will entertain as well as be appreciated while delivering a message through its story. For me, this has been my biggest year and I have many learnings from how things have panned out for me. These are invaluable findings for me as an actor and I will apply these in my content choices going forward."
Finally owing his success to all the ace filmmakers with whom he has worked with, Ayushmann concluded, "I have been fortunate to have got films that have given me the opportunity to creatively express myself completely and my success is because of the film-makers who have believed in me. I do feel the responsibility of delivering good cinema to audiences and it’s a good pressure to have because it will keep my hunger to find the best content going."
Ayushmann will be next seen in two of the much-awaited movies of next year. One is 'Shubh Mangal Zyada Savdhaan' where he will be playing a gay character and the other is 'Gulabo Sitabo' alongside Shenshah Amitabh Bachchan.
