Ayushmann: I take music very seriously..

By HT

New Delhi, Dec. 23 -- Everyone is aware of actor Ayushmann Khurrana's singing talent. With plenty of singles and Bollywood tracks to his credit, one can think that music is his back up plan but that's not how he looks at it.

"I think music is more of a parallel career and not alternate one. I have done so many shows and I take my music very seriously, I do riyaz everyday and I guess my music is already out there. I'm an artist who does songs with my band and have taken my musical career seriously," says Khurrana, who has given singles such as O Heeriya, Mitti Di Khushboo and Ik Vaari.

Khurrana has also done playback singing for his films such as Vicky Donor (2012), Nautanki Saala (2013) and Bewakoofiyaan (2014). This was always how he planned to shape his career.

"I always wanted to be an actor-singer. There is a different space for these kind of singers and there is hardly any one or two. May be just Farhan (Akhtar) and I. There are other actors too, who sing but their motive is for promotion of their films. There is a distinct place for such people," feels the actor. Does his singing career interfere with his acting aspirations?

"It takes time to do things like these. I do a film in a year and cut a single in a year. I would love to do more such things," he says. When it comes to playback singing in his films, he says, a lot depends on the characters. "In Dum Laga Ke Haisha, (2015) there was a conscious decision not to sing because I was playing a Kumar Sanu fan and wanted to keep the singer away from the actor in me," says Khurrana.
