Ayushmann Khurrana today stated that the success of ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ (2015) made him credible as an actor.��The film has been selected as the Best Hindi Film at the 63rd National Film Awards.
“I think I got the respect and credibility as an actor after ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ because in my first film ‘Vicky Donor’ I was playing myself, a Punjabi,” Khurrana told IANS.
He further went on to say, “In ‘Dum Laga Ke��_’ I had to change my dialect and body language. I have never stayed in Uttar Pradesh. Khari boli (dialect) was not that easy. It was not coming naturally to me and I was playing completely somebody else. So ‘Dum Laga Ke��_’ got me respect as an actor.”
Khurrana will be seen next opposite his ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ co-star Bhumi Pednekar in ‘Manmarziyan’ as well as in ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’ for which he is paired with Parineeti Chopra for the first time.
