The versatile actor Ayushmann Khurrana stared in two successful movies this year, Bareilly Ki Barfi and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, both of which were highly appreciated for its content and the winsome performances. With a successful debut in Shoojit Sircar’s ‘Vicky Donor’ (2012), the actor has been consistent in giving fine performances in different types of roles.You can call him versatile, hard-working, jack of all trades, but Ayushmann Khurrana thinks there is still a long way to go for him to be known as a superstar. Recently while addressing media,“I always think that you need to set yourself in a genre first before breaking out of it. Changing yourself with every film will exhaust you as an artiste. You need to set yourself and say that “this is me and I have done slice of life films, small-town boy roles, and now I am doing a Sriram Raghavan film”. The shock value wouldn’t have happened if Saif Ali Khan had done Omkara as his second film.He emanated out of the chocolate boy image with Omkara and Ek Haseena Thi. You need to give that shock value over a period of time because if you doing that with every film, it’s no fun. That’s the way I look at it. At the same time, you can’t do it just for the heck of it. I was waiting for a Sriram Raghavan to do a thriller. But at the same time, it’s not like I am not trying. I am experimenting like I did in Bewakoofiyan and Nautanki Saala, but some of them just don’t work,” the actor says.“Till the time I don’t give a 100 crore film, I am not a superstar. I am a star but not a superstar. If I were a superstar; I would have got the liberty of choosing the release date. I had two back-to-back films releases this year. But till the time, I don’t become bigger than the film, I cannot do that. Right now, the films are bigger than me. And ideally, it should always be like that because then you get the wholesome view of the film,” Ayushmann explained.
