'I am in no mad rush to sign films'

September 9, 2013:

Choosing well

exploring Ayushmann Khurrana

For Ayushmann Khurrana it is not about signing back-to-back movies but exploring different options in Bollywood, which is why the actor recently assisted director Shoojit Sircar for ‘Madras Cafe’ and is now releasing his new single.

   The 28-year-old actor, who made a successful debut with Sircar’s ‘Vicky Donor’ says though acting is his passion, he is equally keen to learn other aspects of filmmaking. “I am enjoying the whole process of acting. I am trying to explore myself as an artiste.

I sing, I assisted Shoojit sir on ‘Madras Cafe’... I am in no mad rush to do just movies. I am lucky to be getting so many opportunities and I don’t want to miss any,” Ayushmann said. With no movies to release this year, the actor is excited to bring his new single O Heeriye.


The track is again a Punjabi soft rock similar to Ayushmann’s previous hits Paani Da Rang and Saadi Gali. “I had a gap till my next movie releases so I decided to do a song. My first two songs became quite popular so I always knew I would sing again. It is a Punjabi soft rock. I have composed it with my childhood buddies,” he said.

While he enjoys singing, Ayushmann believes acting comes more naturally to him and he will never quit it for a full-time career in playback singing.“I prefer acting to singing because I feel that it comes more naturally to me. As an actor, you have no set of rules but as a singer you have to be very disciplined,” he said. Ayushmann says the album culture in India is deteriorating and it is difficult to survive as an independent musician.

“We didn’t take out an album because that culture is vanishing in India now. We had lot of albums in the 90s but nobody pays attention to independent music today. Very few independent artistes have done well. The only music which is heard today is Bollywood music. So we will try to include this song in a movie,” he said.

The actor has just wrapped up the shooting of his next untitled movie opposite Sonam Kapoor. The rom-com will hit theatres next year. “It is a love story set in the times of recession. I get affected by recession and lose my job while my girlfriend (Sonam) earns more than me. Rishi Kapoor plays Sonam’s father. It is a romantic comedy,” he says.
