If there’s an author backed negative role, I’d love to do it, says Ayushmann Khurrana!


Actor Ayushmann Khurrana, who started his career with the National Award winning film, Vicky Donor and went on to prove his acting mettle with Dum Laga Ke Haisha, has mostly appeared in movies that have him playing a romantic character. He has hardly tried his hand on a negative or, for that matter, a grey character in his career so far.

But when we asked the actor that if given a choice, would he like to take up an out-and-out negative character, he said, “I would love to do it. In fact, I got a lot of awards in a play called Andha Yug, which is written by Dharmveer Bharti. I played Ashwatthama’s character in it. Ashwatthama is completely grey. He is a savage in that play. Nobody can picturise me like that. If given a chance there is an author backed negative character, I would love to do it.”

Khurrana also revealed some beans on one of his upcoming films, which is being directed by Sriram Raghavan. “In my next film, Sriram Raghavan’s film, I’m playing a grey character. I am looking forward to that,” he adds.

Ayushmann Khurrana is gearing up for the release of his romantic comedy film, Bareilly Ki Barfi, which is scheduled to release on 18th August. Directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, the film also stars Kriti Sanon and Rajkummar Rao in key roles.
