Now, Ayushmann's brother in Bollywood
An RJ and theatre actor, Aparshakti Khurrana is all set to make his big screen debut
After Ayushmann Khurrana wowed the audience with his Hindi film debut last year, we hear that the actor’s brother Aparshakti is all set to take his first step into Bollywood.
Aparshakti is part of Neeraj Pande’s upcoming film Saat Uchake (directed by Sanjeev Sharma) and the project is currently being shot in Delhi. Incidentally, like his brother Aparshakti has also worked as RJ.
Says the newbie, “I was doing theatre in Delhi when one of casting director Vicky Sidana’s assistants saw me and took my number. That’s how the film happened. In fact when Vicky said I look like Ayushmann, he was stumped when I told him he was my brother.”
Unlike his brother, Aparshakti does not want to settle down in Mumbai. He says, “Ayush bhaiyya had big plans but both of us want to go in different directions. I have spent four years in Delhi as an RJ and I don’t want to risk it. I am happy here doing my bit.”
The newcomer says that the film has already been half shot and he is extremely thrilled to learn the ropes from his co-stars like Manoj Bajpayee, Kay Kay Menon and the others.
