Ayushmann Khurrana has created quite a stir with his look in his upcoming movie Anek and not many know that it was the actor’s idea to sport an eyebrow slit in the movie.
Ayushmann, who is playing a spy called Joshua in the movie, said, “I have been fortunate enough to collaborate with film-makers who have always encouraged my creative inputs to their vision of storytelling. The eyebrow slit that I’m sporting in Anek was an idea that I discussed with Anubhav sir. It was about creating a distinct look that audiences have never seen me in and I’m glad that people have taken notice of this and are discussing it.”
“I have to thank Anubhav sir for being open to my suggestion and that’s what makes our creative partnership so exciting. I have always been an eager artist who wants to contribute towards building my character and how it will look on screen,” he further added.
“I always make these mental notes and discuss them with my director. Like in Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, my character wears a nose ring. I had bounced this idea with Hitesh (Kewalya) and Anand Rai sir and I’m glad they took this input on board. Similarly, Shoojit sir was happy with the idea that I wanted to have a lisp in Gulabo Sitabo,” revealed the talented star.
He said, “I like to be an active voice when I team up with someone, discussing everything under the sun about my character and the film. I feel invested if I openly speak my mind and thankfully I have always had film-makers who have appreciated what I bring to the table.”
Directed by Anubhav Sinha, Anek is presently being shot in Assam.
