Ayushmann Khurrana, Rajkummar Rao and Kriti Sanon starrer film Bareilly Ki Barfi released last week on Friday and there are certainly no doubts about who stole the show.
Portraying many shades of one character… He also did that in just a scene…More than once…#RajkummarRaoFan hogaye aj…— Hassan Bin Hamza (@Hassan_Docz) August 20, 2017
It was Ayushmann’s first ever film where he had shared screen space with Rajkummar Rao and the latter clearly took away all praises for the film.
However, reacting to critics, the 32-year-old actor says an actor can be a part of a two-hero film if the script is good and he doesn’t see any problem in that.
“I’ve never done a two-hero film and its okay to do it. In ‘Vicky Donor’, Anu Kapoor, I thought, had a more author-backed role than me. But he wasn’t my contemporary, Rajkummar is. But if the script is good, then why not. Once in a while, it’s good to do a two hero film,” Ayushmann said.
Recently, filmmaker Rohit Shetty had reportedly said his Ram Lakhan remake fell through because the male actors were insecure about working together.
But Ayushmann says he was the one who suggested Rajkummar’s name for Bareilly Ki Barfi, despite knowing that his character will get all the appreciation.
“I love Rajkummar as a person and an actor. I was the one who suggested his name for the character. His role is more author-backed than mine. I knew he will get all the good reviews for acting in the film. I won’t be surprised if they say ‘he stole the show’ because his role is like that, transition from a meek to an aggressive guy. I trigger that change but he is doing it,” he told PTI.
The Meri Pyaari Bindu star says he looks up to Rajkummar’s ability of transforming himself in all of his film.
“We are similar in a way but the kind of films we’ve done are slightly different. He has done mostly alternate cinema, I’ve done a mix of both. My films are somewhere in between good commercial success and are also content-based. I’ve always looked up to Rajkummar because he is so versatile. He changes so much in every film, which isn’t easy. He has brought ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ to another level. Selfishly, I feel you should have great actors as eventually, if a film succeeds, everyone wins,” he said.
