No one knows it better than John Abraham and Shoojit Sircar to hold a man to his words. So much so that more than a year after Ayushmann Khurrana offered to double up as an AD for them, the two called forth for his services on the sets of their upcoming film.
And it all started when Ayushmann landed late on the sets of their first film together, Vicky Donor. A source says, “He was late for two consecutive days. Ayushmann also doubled up as the fourth AD on the sets, taking care of the props. He told Shoojit that if his career as an actor didn’t work out, he could become his assistant.”
While Shoojit and John were shooting in Kochi for their next film, they called Ayushmann as a joke and reminded him about his promise. The source adds, “Ayushmann took the next flight out to Kerala and became Shoojit’s AD for the next 10 days.” The actor says, “It was a lot of fun and there was a lot to learn. No one was treating me as an AD. They were pampering me like they would look after an actor.”
