Ayushmann wants to script, direct a film

Mumbai: Actor Ayushmann Khurrana, who is getting rave reviews for his latest release Bala, says he wants to direct and produce someday.

"I want to write a book of poetry, want to write a script, want to direct and produce someday," Ayushmann said.

Talking about his career, Ayushmann said: "I have built my entire career on lack or attack of vanity. But realism really attracts me. We have seen manicured perfect heroes over the years, it's quite an aspiration for the common man. But the common man cannot become like them, so to give them the confidence they need, someone has to glorify their imperfections. And I think my films would lead them to that mind space."

After his stint on the small screen, Ayushmann entered the industry in the role of a sperm donor in 2012 with Vicky Donor.

"Going ahead with Vicky Donor changed my life. I had said no to 6 films before Vicky Donor. It was the best decision of my life," he said.

He faced the failures of Nautanki Saala!, Hawaizaada and Bewakoofiyaan. But he returned with a bang with Dum Laga Ke Haisha as a school dropout, who hesitantly marries an educated but overweight girl.
