BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: Vicky Donor actor Ayushmann Khurrana’s life has taken on a strange turn due to the lockdown. Besides focusing on creating poetry, he has also been helping out his kids with their studies.
He rues that he had come into this profession to escape studies, but has to do it now all over again. Speaking to film critic Rajjev Masand, he said, “There are online classes happening, which is unique for us. We don’t know anything about it. We are trying to learn new things. I had run away to escape this and now I am doing just that. What is the point?”
On the work front, he’s of the opinion that the film industry will take a hit. “Our industry will take a hit for sure. People will think twice before going to theatres or to any public event,” he said while adding that the lockdown should continue till the virus is completely eradicated.
He also hopes that there will be different kinds of films post the crisis as a new awareness should grip humanity and the arts. “I am sure the kind of films we will make will be different from the kind of films we have seen earlier,” he said, “How to make it topical is the real challenge. I want to go back to sets, have some reading sessions, jam with directors, go out on locations, I am missing that madness,” he said.
