Ayushmann Khurrana has revealed in a recent interview that he is still a big fan of Aamir Khan. Khurrana has revealed that Aamir Khan taught him a lesson about stardom even before he stepped into Bollywood. Ayushmann Khurrana revealed that he never watched the Tamil film that Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is based on, Kalyana Samayal Saadham. Khurrana said that Aamir Khan also does not like to watch others for taking inspiration for his roles.
Khurrana said, "I did not watch the original and still haven't seen the original! I guess that's my method of going for a script. If someone offers me a remake, I don't watch the original, I just read the script. Sometimes the humour, the essence, the emotions are lost in the translation and it happens more than often."
"Also, I get quite inspired from an actor when I'm watching the original film. So, it's difficult to bring my own thing to the screen. So, I just read the script and react to that," he added.
Recalling the incident when Aamir Khan taught him a valuable lesson Ayushmann said, "I was an MTV presenter and I remember I was interviewing him for ‘Ghajini'. I asked him this question, ‘How is the film different from the original?' He said, ‘I've not seen the original!' I was really fascinated. He said he had read the script and it was great. So, I took that cue and I found that to be a great lesson!"
Ayushmann Khurrana last appeared in Shoojit Sircar's Gulabo Sitabo alongside Amitabh Bachchan. Gulabo Sitabo skipped a theatrical release and premiered on Amazon Prime Video.
