Actor, singer and host Ayushmann Khurrana, who is currently busy shooting for his next movie Dum Laga Ke Haisha, said his film Bewakoofiyaan took him to his earlier days when he had only Rs.10,000 as savings for his marriage.
Ayushmann, who is playing bankrupt lover in Bewakoofiyaan, said he eventually overcame his financial troubles by finding fame in showbiz.
“I have not struggled much in my career as my character (Mohit Chadhdha) in the film does. I did face rejections but was never bogged down. I only relate to the financial insecurity part of my character. I remember when I married Tahira, I only had Rs 10,000 in my account. But I don’t relate to the joblessness. I rather feel I was always at the right place at the right time,” Ayushmann said in a statement.
Ayushmann tied the knot with his childhood friend Tahira before he entered showbiz.
Also featuring Rishi Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor, Bewakoofiyaan has been released today.
“I am not nervous but I have always been excited about my every release. I am getting good response because it’s a quirky and edgy film. It’s a young film. I think effects of recession are still there as people continue to get pink slips. There is a lot of unemployment in India due to the recession,” the actor said.
Asked if his wife Tahira has watched the film yet, Ayushmann replied; “She is in Chandigarh now. I am planning to fly down to Chandigarh by evening and we are going to watch it. But she has read the script.”
