New Delhi [India], February 5 (FeedsIndia): Three days after dropping his first look from ‘ANEK’ by Anubhav Sinha, actor Ayushmann Khurrana revealed on Friday to his director how he got the thought of his ‘new eyebrow slit’ look.
“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,” he said.
In addition, Ayushmann Khurrana shared that the concept was to create a “distinct look” that had never been seen by viewers before.
“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,” he said.
“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,” the 36-year-old actor added.
The actor also opened up about how takes “mental notes” about his characters and discusses them with his directors.
“I always make these mental notes and discuss them with my director. Like in Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, my character wears a nose ring,” Ayushmann said.
“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,” he added.
Ayushmann Khurrana is now shooting in Assam for Sinha’s ‘ANEK’. The star, revealing his first look from the film on Tuesday, posted two pictures on Instagram.
One of which saw him holding the clapper board while the ‘Thappad’ filmmaker could be seen standing with him. The actor was dressed in a deep olive green jacket in another shot, driving a jeep in the middle of a jungle.
A side eyebrow slit featured the 36-year-old actor’s new look from the film, and a bearded look with slightly messy hair closely cut on the sides.
After the critically-acclaimed 2019 film ‘Article 15’, the forthcoming film marks Anubhav’s second collaboration with Ayushmann. ‘Anek’ is being bankrolled by Anubhav and Bhushan Kumar under Benaras Media Works and T-Series, and helmed by the ‘Mulk’ filmmaker. (FeedsIndia)
