Ayushmaan Khurana, who sang as well as acted in his debut film, Vicky Donor, says he would love to play a singer on screen.
I would love to play a singer in a film. Something like what Ranbir Kapoor played in Rockstar. It would be amazing. If I get to sing in a movie for myself and get to exploit my talent, then why not? I used to take Indian classical music training. I never took it seriously, though I regret it now.
An actor-singer is a complete performer performer, he says.
If you are lending your voice to your character, it shows your credibility as a performer. If you have a talent to sing, then you should sing for yourself.
A VJ-turned actor, he feels his acting skills are more powerful than anything.
I always felt I was more of an actor than a VJ. I have done theatre from childhood. I have formed two theatre groups in Chandigarh and gave music to it. I have nurtured myself over the years and invested a lot of time and effort in the craft.
Talking about his future projects, said:
I get inspired by certain roles like Shah Rukh Khan in Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, Aamir Khan of Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar and Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak or may be Amitabh Bachchan of Shakti.
