‘People had written me off’: Ayushmann Khurrana reveals he wanted to quit films after series of flops

Actor Ayushmann Khurrana has become the face of entertainment, his films come with assurance and are based on social messages, but little did you know that the actor once decided to move on from films after delivering 3 back to back flop films.

On Quickheal ‘Pinch By Arbaaz Khan Season 2’, Ayushmann graced the show with his presence and he along with the host Arbaaz had a blast. Ayushmann answered back all his trollers with a smile and it was the funniest possible way.

Ayushmann agreed that social media has become important in today’s time, but he also feels that artists have minimised their surprise element, the mysterious value of them with the emergence of the digital world.

Arbaaz applauded the ‘Article 15’ actor’s achievement of being named among the 100 most influential people of 2020. He further appreciated the fact that Ayushmann has changed the dynamics of ‘Heroism’. Apart from being an actor, Ayushmann is also an excellent singer, composer, and book writer. Arbaaz brought few user comments about the actor’s book, ‘Cracking the Code: My Journey in Bollywood’.

Ayushmann owned the moment by slamming trollers and further shared that after giving three consecutive flops, the actor had decided to go back to Chandigarh, and during that time, he penned down his journey.

He further added that it was during that period, “nothing was working for him”, he had decided that if not for films he would work on his music band Ayushmann Bhava, he would sing on birthdays, write books, or entertain people in any other way. But he would continue being an artist.

Ayushmann said in Hindi, “After my first film, I starred in three back-to-back flops. People had written me off, and I was ready to move back to Chandigarh. I was going through a phase where I had time on my hands to write a book, so I wrote it.”

“But now I’m at a stage where I don’t have time to write a book, and work is also going well. Nothing was working out at that time. I had to do something to make it work. I had a band, named Ayushmann Bhava; I used to do concerts. I thought even if my films don’t work, I could sing at birthdays, I’d dance, I’d entertain people somehow, I’d write a book. I was thinking of all the things I could do if my films don’t work. You just need to make it work somehow, that’s an artist’s job,” he added.

Ayushmann further admitted being a big fanboy of Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan, and Sharukh Khan.

Speaking about his love life with wife Tahira Kashyap, Ayushmann revealed how after Tahira’s chemotherapy when her hair started re-growing in a curly way, he called her ‘Harish’ after the 90’s actor Harish who had curls.

Apart from the heart-to-heart conversation, the episode was loaded with fun as Arbaaz and Ayushmann played ‘social media dum charades’ and they both aced it equally.

This funny, sweet, emotional, and entertaining episode of Quickheal ‘Pinch By Arbaaz Khan Season 2’ will stream on platforms- QuPlay; YouTube for free, on ZEE5, and on weekends on MyFM.
