Post `Vicky Donor`, Ayushmann to focus more on movies
Kolkata: Ayushmann Khurrana, who made it big in Bollywood with his debut film `Vicky Donor`, says he will now focus more on films rather than on TV shows.
“‘Vicky Donor` has been one of the biggest debuts in the last decade. For now, movies are on my agenda. I will be more selective about my TV projects," said the 27-year-old who started his showbiz journey as one of the contestants on season two of "Roadies".
Directed by Shoojit Sircar and produced by John Abraham, "Vicky Donor" was made on a Rs.5 crore budget and earned Rs.45 crore.
Ayushmann says he is enjoying the fame, but it has not got into his head.
"I am surely relishing the added fame and attention that I am getting now, but I know how to handle fame. It`s all in your head. If you start taking yourself too seriously, you will end up killing yourself," he said.
Taking about his upcoming projects, he said: "I am doing `Hamara Bajaj`. It is being produced by John Abraham. I`m doing an untitled Rohan Sippy (director) movie and the sequel to `Tere Bin Laden`, which is still in talks."
In the city as a show stopper for fashion designer Jaya Misra, the young actor loved the "laid back" attitude of Kolkata.
"I love the laid back attitude of the people here. They are so relaxed and cool I surely like the city."
