He began his film career playing a Punjabi from Delhi in Shoojit Sircar’s Vicky Donor (2012). Ayushmann Khurrana has since played a Bengali in Akshay Roy's Meri Pyaari Bindu (2017), and a UP man in Sharat Katariya's Dum Lagake Haisha (2015) and Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari's Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017). Now, the actor is all set to play a Haryanvi in Amit Sharma' Badhaai Ho.

Khurrana will speak in three dialects in the film - Haryanvi, Hindi and even dabble with the dialect of Hindi spoken in Meerut, UP.

The actor said such roles challenge him.

“As an artist, I love to play roles that challenge me, excite me and helps me push the envelope. Trying to imbibe and speak and emulate the local lingo, diction and nuances that people have from different parts of India is a necessity for the kind of roles I like to essay. Today’s audience love real characters and want to see actors become the characters they have to portray. For me, if I convince people to forget that they are seeing Ayushmann on screen and believe in the character I’m playing, that is my biggest prize.”

Of the languages he will speak in the film, he said, “In Badhaai Ho, I will need to speak in Haryanvi and also get a classic Meerut, Western Uttar Pradesh accent. There’s actually three different dialects that I have to speak in. I am looking forward to doing this and surprise the audience.”

Also starring Sanya Malhotra, the plot of Badhaai Ho revolves around how a family deals with some unexpected news.
