When Ayushmann Khurrana was rejected for TV show

It was a surreal moment for VJ-turned-Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana when he was called upon to mentor the contestants in the upcoming season of India's Best Cinestars Ki Khoj. He says that it was the same show that rejected him many years ago when he came for audition.

The 29-year-old, who came into the limelight after winning the second season of MTV Roadies, recollects how he was rejected for the show just because of his unconventional looks. ‘It was the spring of 2003 when I auditioned for season one of India's Best Cinestars Ki Khoj and I was rejected,’ Ayushmann said here Thursday at the press conference to launch the show along with actress Parineeti Chopra and director Vijay Krishna Acharya.

‘It's quite surreal that I am on the panel as friend (and)as a Bollywood buddy this time. I remember in 2003 I was this nerdy looking thin guy with spectacles. (I was) not six feet tall conventional hero,’ he said.
