Aparshakti khurana believes that many people and even many filmmakers are unaware of the fact that he is the brother of Ayushman khurana.
Aparshakti khurana is a 31-year-old actor, who started his career as a radio jockey and later became an anchor on Indian television and also has became part of successful film, 2016 blockbuster “Dangal”, featuring Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Zaira Wasim and Sanya Malhotra.
After that he had also became a part of many movies like stree,badrinath ki dulhani and most recently lukka chuppi , not like his brother ayushman khurana who made a debut with Vicky donor in 2012.Aparshakti has played a supporting role in his all the films but he says that he is fine with it.
“Whenever I meet people, they call me Bittu of ‘Stree’ or Omkar of ‘Dangal’. And I believe not many people know that I’m the brother of Ayushmann. When they do get to know that we are brothers, then sometimes they are shocked and sometimes they say ‘Yeah, you sound so similar’ or ‘you look similar’.
“I think it happens also because we both share different space. His space is completely different than mine. I have had a different journey than he had,” Aparshakti told PTI.
Aparshakti’s journey is dissimilar to other bollywood star kids who had made debut in films as a lead.
“My journey is different from other star brothers, kids or sisters. I think that is one of the main reasons that people don’t question me on this. So far, the media and the audiences have not really roped me into the ambit of nepotism.
“No one has really come up and said that I have been launched by someone. I’m still playing the friend of a film’s hero. No star kid has ever done this role but I have done it in five films.” says Aparshakti.
This shows that the actor is not at all ashamed of his work or roles in the films.He has a good gut feeling during any decision making and is very hardworking.
“There was a time in my school and college days when I really used to plan and they never shaped up, both at the personal and professional front. And I think whenever you plan things and they don’t happen, then you feel heartbroken. I have stopped planning things. I have stopped planning life, be it personal or professional,” he says.
“I don’t really sit down and think like ‘I’ll do these things now.’ I just do things the way I want to do and the way they come to me,” he adds.
After “Luka Chuppi”, the actor will be next seen in “Jabariya Jodi”, “Street Dancer” and “Kanpuriye”.
