Bollywood star Ayushmann Khurrana is currently shooting his next project, ‘ANEK’, directed by Anubhav Sinha in the North East. The poster boy of content cinema in India, Ayushmann, has carved his name in the history of Bollywood for being a bold, risk-taker who chooses high-concept films that become huge hits at the box office.
His brand of cinema is now lovingly called the ‘Ayushmann Khurrana Genre’ and the star is known for his versatility. The ‘Bala’ actor is an avid social media user and keeps his fans entertained and engaged with the updates of his personal and professional life.
Ayushmann has teamed up with Anubhav after their big success with ‘Article 15’ and is thrilled that this film is providing him the opportunity to explore incredible Indian locations for the first time in his career. After shooting in Kaziranga, Ayushmann is now shooting in the beautiful Shillong, a place that he has never shot before!
On Saturday night, the phenomenal actor took to his Instagram handle and shared a striking picture of himself, wherein he can be seen sitting on a chair in a vast field. He is donning a beige coloured pants, blue shirt and boots. Holding a coffee mug in one hand, and the script in another, Ayushmann seems to be lost in thoughts. A backpack can also be seen kept besides him.
Along with the photo, Ayushmann penned a thoughtful note regarding the big theatrical releases in the coming months. The ‘Dream Girl’ star also talked about what is giving him goosebumps.
“Trying to read between the lines. When the director says Cut and one more, you think about the missing undertone. When you discover the undertone, the magic is nearly created. Nearly? Coz nothing is perfect. If you push yourself to achieve perfection, you’ll be consumed by the cynical side of yours. Accept the imperfections in you, in the material in hand and just leave it to the magic of cinema. The only aspiration should be empathy for the receiver of the message or your work of art,” he said in his post.
“Pensive and hard hitting lines combined with simplicity of tonality is the key to receivers’ heart. May I always feel the excitement of a new comer. May I always feel vulnerable towards my craft and the circus around stardom and cinema. And lastly, can’t wait for the circus to begin. “In the cinemas near you” – the collective consumption of your work of labour with the “houseful” board hanging callously at the box office. It gives me goosebumps thinking about it. Hope we are able to achieve it. Sigh. Till then let me romanticise the lonely process of acting with a cup of coffee and sides of my next scene,” Ayushmann concludes.
His post has garnered more than four lakh likes, and celebrities are sharing their thoughts about the same in the comment section. Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha wrote, “Serious matter…..”. Ayushmann replied to him, “sir sir sir”, with a heart emoji. Tisca Chopra commented, “Now is a good time to start writing a script I am thinking”, to which Ayushmann replied, “NMRK”. His wife Tahira Kashyap Khurrana said, “Beautiful. While Neeti Mohan, Manish Malhotra and Mouni Roy dropped heart emoticons.
