Sriram Raghavan’s Andhadhun starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Tabu, and Radhika Apte is one of the best thrillers made in Bollywood. The 2018 release was super hit at the box office and recently it made a mark at the National Film Awards as well. Ayushmann Khurrana received National Award in the Best Actor category for his performance in the film.
Recently, the team had also organized a bash to celebrate the win at the National Awards. Meanwhile, director Sriram Raghavan has already written a script for Ayushmann, but the filmmaker says that the actor has no time to listen to the script. He told a daily, “But he has no time to listen to the script at the moment. Whenever he finds some time, I am sure he will hear the narration.”
While talking about Andhadhun’s win at the National Awards, the filmmaker said, “The National Award is different and prestigious when compared to all the other awards. When I heard about it, I felt very good.”
Raghavan’s next is a thriller which will be produced by Ramesh Taurani. While talking about it, he said, “This commitment has been pending for almost six years now. If all goes well, we will begin shooting by the beginning of 2020.”
On winning the National Award, Ayushmann had earlier said, “It’s truly humbling and hugely gratifying to win the coveted National Awards. As an artist, I have always tried to back disruptive content that stands out for its quality content. Today’s honour is a validation of my hard work, my belief system, my journey in movies and my reason to be an actor in the first place. Over and above my personal win, I’m thrilled that both the films that I have done – Andhadhun and Badhaai Ho have won at the prestigious National Awards. It again validates that people of our country want to see cinema that entertains, that they can cherish, discuss and endorse.”
While talking about Andhadhun, the actor said, “Andhadhun is a path-breaking film and Sriram Raghavan deserves all the accolades for creating a new genre of cinema for Indian audiences to enjoy. I have been truly fortunate to be a part of Sriram Raghavan’s vision and congratulate my director for his genius. As an artist, Andhadhun challenged me and I strongly feel it made me a better actor.”
