Actor Ayushmann Khurrana has said that his successful film ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ holds special place in his filmography. He added saying that it was very international and very non-Yash Raj film produced by Yash Raj Films.
Ayushmann Khurrana was interacting with media to promote ‘Bala’ along with his co-actor Yami Gautam on Tuesday in Mumbai.
When asked Ayushmann which film he feels was the turning point of his career, he said, “Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ is actually the boon of life for me. After ‘Vicky Donor’ my three films didn’t work and after ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ my career came back on track. It’s a very special film for me because it was more like an international film. It wasn’t a typical Hindi commercial film. It was very non-Yash Raj film produced by Yash Raj Films.”
‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ , released internationally as My Big Fat Bride, is a 2015 romantic comedy-drama film written and directed by Sharat Katariya, starring Ayushmann Khurana and Bhumi Pednekar, Sanjay Mishra and Seema Pahwa in the lead roles.
Ayushmaan Khurrana has been part of successful films like ‘Vicky Donor’, ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’, ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’, ‘Shubh Mangal Savdhan’, ‘Andhadhun’, ‘Badhaai Ho’ and ‘Article 15’. He also got a National Film Award for best actor for his performance in ‘Andhdhun’.
Talking about his journey in Hindi film industry, Ayushmann said, “I think from the first film, you set a trajectory of your career. Doing slice of life and taboo breaking films has become my identity so, I think if you give something new to the audience, if you make them watch films based on taboo subjects and if you make them laugh in that process then there is nothing better than that. And to get out of that zone, you have to do films like ‘Article 15’ and ‘Andhudun’. I want to work in every kind of genre but at the same time, I want t do it with new approach.”
Ayushmann Khurrana next will be seen onscreen in Amar Kaushik’s ‘Bala’ and followed by Shoojit Sircar’s ‘Gulabo Sitabo’.
