After featuring in light-hearted hits like 'Vicky Donor', 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha', 'Bareilly Ki Barfi' and 'Shubh Mangal Saavdhan', the 33-year-old actor will first time ever be seen in an action avatar. Looks like Ayushmann Khurrana will be seen doing an unusual, realistic action in this film. He is about to play a character of a blind piano player who gets caught in the middle of a heist and he would need to fend for himself and escape the situation. As he is a blind in this flick, he has do a logical and extremely believable action sequence.
The source added, "Ayushmann has jumped off the first floor of the building without a harness and without protection on the ground. There is a technique to pull this off without getting hurt and he practised it and perfected the shot to a T. There are several chase sequences that Ayushmann will pull off, a couple of very realistic hand-to-hand action sequences. Sriram is clear that it has to be convincing to audiences that a person with a disability can pull off these sequences and not come across as macho, stereotyped Bollywood action sequences that are mostly unbelievable. Ayushmann has got a taste of action for the first time and he is loving it."
When contacted, Ayushmann confirms the story saying, "This is the first film in which I'm doing some very realistic action and it has been a great experience for me. I'm loving the rush of doing these sequences. They are extremely real. The highlight has to be me jumping off from the first floor of the building without a harness or any protection on the ground. I did the shot in just one take and thankfully I didn't get hurt! I'm looking forward to pulling off the other action sequences in the film. It's going to be a good high."
Let's see whether the audience likes his new action avatar.
