As a TV anchor, Ayushmann Khurrana enjoyed his irreverence and blunt approach towards celebrities, but he admits he can’t afford to do it anymore.
“The tonalities of the tweets have changed so much. I was so irreverent in the past, I was just blunt when I was an anchor on television,” the
28-year-old said. “I was irreverent towards the film industry, the actors, because I was on the other side making shows, making fun of people on camera. But I’m a part of the industry now and know everyone personally, so I can’t afford to do that now,” he added.
Ayushmann hails from Chandigarh, and made his Bollywood debut with the film Vicky Donor. While he is himself popular, Ayushmann admits he still goes crazy everytime he sees a star like Amitabh Bachchan or Shah Rukh Khan. However, he says, he controls himself from behaving like a common fan.
“I just control myself in front of them. I want to go like Amitabh Bachchan!, Shah Rukh Khan! as I see the industry as an outsider. So I get that feeling very often when I see stars with me on stage or the same party,” he said.
