On Saturday the terrific actor took to his Instagram handle to share a thoughtful note regarding the big theatrical releases in the coming months, including his own ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’, set to release on July 9. He also shared a picture of himself in between shots reading his script.
“Trying to read between the lines. When the director says Cut and one more, you think about the missing undertone. When you discover the undertone, the magic is nearly created. Nearly? Coz nothing is perfect. If you push yourself to achieve perfection, you’ll be consumed by the cynical side of yours. Accept the imperfections in you, in the material in hand and just leave it to the magic of cinema. The only aspiration should be empathy for the receiver of the message or your work of art. Pensive and hard hitting lines combined with simplicity of tonality is the key to receivers’ heart. May I always feel the excitement of a new comer. May I always feel vulnerable towards my craft and the circus around stardom and cinema. And lastly, can’t wait for the circus to begin. “In the cinemas near you” – the collective consumption of your work of labour with the “houseful” board hanging callously at the box office. It gives me goosebumps thinking about it. Hope we are able to achieve it. Sigh. Till then let me romanticise the lonely process of acting with a cup of coffee and sides of my next scene,” he wrote.
Besides the director-actor teaming up for the second time, Ayushmann’s rugged look as ‘Joshua’ has certainly raised huge anticipation and expectation among his fans since they haven’t seen him in this avatar on screen before.
Ayushmann is one of the most versatile actors in the film industry. He has carved a niche for himself with rich content-driven films he chose to work with.
