"My brother has this amazingly dramatic name Aparshakti. He is the real footballer of the family. He is as passionate about the game as Shoojit is. I am not really into football," the Vicky Donor actor said here.
"I've played football as a child. But I wouldn't say I can play the game well enough to look convincing while playing it on screen," he added.
Ayushmann has requested his brother, who is a popular radio jockey, to coach him in football for the movie, which will also feature actor-producer John Abraham.
"I have requested my brother to spare some time to help me look like a footballer on screen. The problem is, he is busier than I am. Besides being a passionate footballer, Aparshakti is also a radio jockey and a theatre actor," he said.
Aparshakti is also making his acting debut in a film titled Saat Uchakke, produced by Neeraj Pandey, said Ayushmann. "I've to bend my time table to shoot his schedules. But it's finally worth it."
"Both John Abraham and Shoojit Sircar play football like professionals. I've to look convincing with them on screen."
