Ayushmann Khurrana opened up about his quarantine dilemma, lockdown routine, kids and how stardom affected him in the recent interview with Jitesh Pillaai, as part of the Filmfare Lockdown Conversations.
Ayushmann Says He Feels Useless At Home
When asked what he is doing during the lockdown, Ayushmann said he is confused and feels useless. He also revealed that he sleeps the most and is not much of a help in the kitchen. "I am such a lazy lump of protoplasm during this lockdown, forgive my biology because I was a bio student earlier. What I don't understand is if I should sleep after feeling tired or if I should feel tired after sleeping so much. So, I am confused. I sleep for seven and a half hours during night time and then an hour and half of siesta, so that makes for nine hours of sleep. I feel redundant. I am so used to lazying around, I am not sure if I will be able to work after the lockdown."
Ayushmann On The Effects Of Stardom
Talking very candidly about the effects of stardom, he says, "We went to the Bahamas to celebrate New Year's. We were staying in a great 7-star property which came with a butler. But when you get that anonymity like standing in queues, etc., then you realise there is something beyond stardom which you enjoy in your own country." Talking about the experience he added, "You are just a somebody in a sphere. When you get out of it, you are a nobody. There are no security guards taking care of you, or your manager who is there for you. Sab kuch khud hi karna hai. (You're on your own.) That reality check is not so easy."
Ayushmann Says Virajveer Is Just Like Him
Earlier, Ayushmann took to his Instagram to share a picture of his son Virajveer Khurrana with a guitar in his hand. However, in the latest interview, he revealed something that Virajveer is not good at. Ayushmann went on to say that Virajveer is an artist like his father, but also like his father, he is bad at numbers. "During the lockdown, I discovered they are truly my kids because they are just as bad with Maths as I am. My son is good with piano, sketching. He is an artist, but I lose my mind at times while explaining Maths to him."
