TV anchor turned actor, Ayushmann Khurrana, who made an impressive debut with film, Vicky Donor, says awards are important for a newcomer.
I have just made my debut so, I think, it (awards) will mean a lot to me. Having said that, this is the year of debutants, it’s not just me, there are other people as well and I feel there have never been so many debuts in a year as there have been this year.
the 28-year-old said.
So, I don’t know whether it’s a good thing or a bad thing but definitely, cinema is looking beyond nepotism. I am an outsider and I am just taking my baby steps in the industry, it will mean a lot to me, for sure.
Asked which actor would he like to vote for the award, Ayushmann said:
I think I would like to vote for Ranbir Kapoor. He is the superstar of our generation and he was brilliant in Barfi! and Rockstar. In fact, during the shooting of Vicky Donor I went to see Rockstar and I think it was very inspiring as an actor and as a performer.
Ayushmann is currently working on Hamara Bajaj and Nautanki Saala.
