Ayushmann Khurrana rues about not getting to show his muscles

The actor also talks about gifting a special dress to Meri Pyaari Bindu co-star Parineeti Chopra.


Actor Ayushmann Khurrana says he wants to show his muscles in films, an opportunity he says he has not got till now as he keeps getting realistic films.

At the launch of a smart shirt for the fashion brand Arrow, Khurrana was asked whom he would gift a smart T-shirt that could actually rip your muscles by the press. "That is for me," he said. "I don't get a character in any film where I have to show my muscles; I get those realistic films. Vicky Donor, Dum Laga Ke Haisha, where there is no need to show muscles."

Khurrana also did not get the chance to show muscles in films such as Nautanki Saala! (2013) or Hawaizaada (2015) and it also seems he won't get the chance in his upcoming films like Manmarziyan (2017) and Meri Pyaari Bindu (2017). He, however, went shirtless and showed off his physique in the Sonam Kapoor-starrer Bewakoofiyaan (2014).

As part of the interaction, Khurrana was also asked if he had to gift another smart shirt to someone, who his choice would be. He said, "The thing is that I have never seen Ranveer [Singh] wearing a classic shirt. And he is very radical with his sense of style. He is amazing."

What about gifting a dress to someone who changes colours according to her moods? "I am working with Parineeti [Chopra] right now and recently we have been discovering her singing talent as well, so she is switching from acting to singing and the mood swings... acting and singing have to be in different moods, either you are lip-syncing or you are singing."

About singing with Chopra in the film Meri Pyaari Bindu, he said, "In fact we still have to sing it. You might have seen the video, we keep singing on the set. Parineeti is playing the singer's part in the film; I am the Bengali author in the film. But we will be also doing a duet."

Khurrana's last film Dum Laga Ke Haisha (2015) won numerous National awards.
