Ayushmann Khurrana will be flaunting his six-pack abs for his first film with Yash Raj Films (YRF). He plays a squash player in the movie. This film directed by Nupur Asthana is not titled yet. The movie is slated for release in September this year.
The cover of Men's Health magazine latest issue features Ayushmann in his perfect abs. "This (the abs) is of course, for my next film Yash Raj Films project with Sonam Kapoor. I have some body shots in the film. I play a squash player, so that was the need of the character," the 28-year-old said at the launch of the magazine cover.
The six-pack mania became popular in Bollywood after actors like Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Ranveer Singh have flaunted this look. Ayushmann believes everyone builds abs for one reason or the other. "I think nobody builds or tries to build abs without any reason. It's quite difficult, it's not easy. It is for a particular character," he said.
Ayushmann's confidence has got him where he is right now. "I was very skinny as a kid and I was not as confident as I am right now. I was just another kid in the class and it was an all boys school, so I never used to crave for attention," said the talented actor.
The actor started his career on television. He has been part of more than 20 TV shows such as MTV Roadies and India's Got Talent. He has also hosted many events including IIFA and Femina Miss India. "It's not just about being in the industry. Anybody, be it a journalist or camera person, if that person is fit, naturally that person will be confident," he added.
Ayushmann's debut film Vicky Donor recently fetched him the best debut award at the recently held International Indian Film Academy Awards (IIFA). He is also part of a project named Hamara Bajaj, the shoot of which is delayed and it is expected to start only next year.
