Ayushmann Khurrana has made a mark with his debut Bollywood movie Vicky Donor. The actor speaks to Tavishi Paitandy Rastogi about life, movies, food and his drakest fantasy.
Which character from Sholay do you most resemble and why?
I think I’m Dhanno, the dark horse.
You would turn gay for...
Myself. I love myself and you need to ‘love’ yourself to be a sperm donor.
If you were given a chance to remake one film, which one would it be?
I would love to make a prequel of Vicky Donor called Vicky Boner or a sequel with a female lead as an egg donor called Pinky Donor.
The last line of your autobiography would read?
...to be continued.
One song that describes your current state of mind?
I can’t get my song Paani Da Rang out of my head.
Your darkest fantasy?
One, it’s a fantasy and two, it’s supposed to be dark. Answer this? Are you kidding me?
The most embarrassing moment after Vicky Donor?
I was in a mall with my mom and I heard this random shout from a girl: “Oye Vicky, I need your sperms!”
How would you explain Twitter to your grandfather?
I think he’s quite cool, I’ll tell him, “Dadaji, Twitter is Facebook’s quickie!”
The last time you donated sperm?
It was in 2004 as part of a Roadies 2 task in Allahabad. I was 19 then.
If you were to give up a dessert, what would it be?
Rasmalai. I think it’s overrated.
The most clichéd answer you’ve ever given in an interview?
Words like “overwhelmed” and “feel-good”.
The colour you look hottest in?
The one lie you got away with?
That I don’t lie...
Which actress would you want to romance on screen?
I’m a huge Madhuri fan and can still romance her. Of my contemporaries, Anushka [Sharma] is quite cute and talented and Parineeti [Chopra] is very believable and natural.
What’s the biggest surprise you’ve ever given your date?
I forgot to turn up!
If I could...
I would host KBC
Allow older female stars to keep acting
Be a superhero called ayushMANn!
