With the success of his debut film ‘Vicky Donor’ (2012), actor Ayushmann Khurrana has expressed his desire to play more realistic roles, rather than the typical heroic roles, and it looks like that’s exactly what’s happening.

Having impressed many filmmakers with his debut performance, Khurranna has a number of roles already lined up, such as his upcoming role playing a ‘nautanki walla’ in Rohan Sippy’s ‘Nautanki Sala’, One India Entertainment report the actor explaining “The best part is all the roles that I am playing are real or close to reality. I have done theatre so I could relate to the character in ‘Nautanki Saala’.”

Also signed opposite Sonam Kapoor in a Yash Raj Films production, Khurrana’s other release written by ‘Ishaqzaade’ (2012) writer Habib Faisal, will see him playing a man struggling through a recession, “It is a love story in the times of recession and I play a guy who is hit by recession. It is a Habib Faisal kind of film, very real.”

From TV to the big screen, Khurrana sure has done well for himself, where he goes onto say, “Things have changed for me as an actor. We are living in an era where transition from TV to films is easy. I have made it quite successfully. I was around for four years, anchoring shows, taking interviews, watching the industry as an outsider. It is a nice shift, it is ironical.”
