Ayushmann Khurrana, who has delivered eight back-to-back hits, is known for his knack for choosing content-driven entertainers. As his 2015 release Dum Laga Ke Haisha clocks in six years today, the actor claims that the film ‘bolstered’ his belief that he was on the ‘right path’.
The versatile actor said, “Dum Laga Ke Haisha will always be one of the most memorable films of my career due to various reasons. It bolstered my belief that I was on the right path of selecting films that spark a conversation.”
“Vicky Donor and then DLKH’s success told me that audiences wanted to have a different experience in the theatre and that, their taste was changing. They wanted to have a different form of engagement at the movies. They wanted to have a conversation, have a debate and take back an uplifting message home,” he further added.
Ayushmann believes that DLKH’s success proved to be a watershed moment for his career. “I will forever be indebted to Adi sir, Maneesh Sharma and Sharat Katariya for bringing this film to me. Films like DLKH have shaped my positioning as an artiste who wants to walk the road less travelled and constantly experiment with genres and subjects,” said Khurrana.
“Such films have been the voice of my beliefs and sensibilities and have enabled me to write my own destiny in this industry. I never looked back after DLKH and so, it will always be a super special one for my career, for my life,” concluded the actor.
Ayushmann Khurrana was seen opposite Bhumi Pednekar in the movie.
