In a recent media interview, Ayushmann Khurrana spoke about his upcoming film An Action Hero and how he had to unlearn so much to groove for the character. While shooting for the film, Khurrana also felt like he was making a debut all over again.
"It felt like I was making my debut in the Hindi film industry while filming for An Action Hero. I have never explored this genre in my career so I had to unlearn and learn many things to pull off this role effectively on screen. I had a lot of fun and I hope audiences will appreciate what I have tried to do on screen with a disruptive film like An Action Hero".
"Also, my character, Manav, is far removed from who I am in real life. Manav is extravagant, spoiled, moody and a brat. So, to play him, I had to become someone else completely and channelise these traits," he added, "I'm thrilled that people have loved the trailer of An Action Hero. I always want to present myself in a new way on screen and hunt out scripts that sparkle with newness every single time. It feels great to see how people have connected to An Action Hero as being that kind of film."
An Action Hero, directed by Anirudh Iyer and produced by Aanand L. Rai, Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar, releases on December 2.
