"There is no dearth of opportunities in Mumbai but there is definitely lack of preparation with all the struggling actors maybe," he added.
Kunaal Roy Kapoor, his Nautanki Saala co-star, feels struggling actors should not lose hope and keep on working their craft.
"I have been acting on stage since I was 12... So, I think if anyone wants to be an actor, then they should just go out and try and get work," Kunaal said.
"And as Ayushmann said, one thing leads to another and if you are truly talented, a lot of people do get noticed and do get picked up. People coming to city should not lose hope and should keep on improving their craft," he added.
Ayushmann made his big screen debut with Vicky Donor last year and Kunaal was seen in Delhi Belly.
Directed by Rohan Sippy, Nautanki Saala hits theatres April 12.
