Khurrana called this opportunity a ‘dream come true’ and said, “I have grown up on Amitabh sir’s movies and like every Indian boy, idolised him, followed him and wanted to be like him since my childhood. Like millions of Indians, I am a huge fan of the legend so it is a dream come true for me to get the opportunity to share screen space with him and learn from him.”
“It is really a surreal moment for me. It is a moment that I have always wished for ever since the time I wanted to become an actor but now that I am going to finally act with him, I think it is going to be extremely overwhelming for me,” he added.
Ayushmann Khurrana made his film debut in Shoojit Sircar directorial Vicky Donor and has since carved a niche for himself, picking up quirky projects with strong storylines. The Bareilly Ki Barfi actor said, “It is a real honour for me as an actor to be able to go through this experience and an incredibly proud moment as an artiste that Shoojit da thought of taking me in this film that has an icon like Bachchan sir. I am excited to start this journey and become a better actor in the process.”
