EXCLUSIVE! Abhimanyu Dassani: Ayushmann Khurrana encouraged me to join Bollywood
Abhimanyu Dassani made his debut with Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota opposite Radhika Madan and won an international debutant award for this movie. He is the first rookie to win an international award. The actor recently had a candid conversation with ETimes on insta live where he revealed to us that a Bollywood actor inspired him to be an actor.
Speaking exclusively about the same thing, Abhimanyu revealed: I worked in ‘Nautanki Saala with Ayushmann Khurrana . He practiced his lines with me. One day he said I was good and why am I not giving acting a chance. The first audition I did was for him. He said I should go and audition. Thanks to him, I chose to go in this direction.
While Abhimanyu talked about entering Bollywood because of Ayushmann, there were reports that he would debut through Salman Khan . Dismissing these reports, Abhimanyu said: “This was a rumor. I hadn't known him for about seven years in between. Maybe more. So I don't know where this came from because I was busy auditioning. She had not spoken to him and had not met him. One morning I got up and got frantic calls, they congratulated me and surprised me. Then I read the news and found out about the rumor. Everything is propaganda. If you don't have talent, you won't get a job. It's as simple as that!
While the actor was appreciated for his role in the film, it pained him a bit that the media did not highlight the news that he won a rookie award at the Toronto Film Festival. He said: Here when a star boy comes, whether he has passed nepotism or non-parental nepotism , he gets the tag of nepotism . Like ‘Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota’, the whole team worked very hard and we were the first Indian film to ever get into Midnight Madness Toronto Film Festival. Toronto Film Festival launched our trailer. The trailer went viral in India. But in the newspaper, the headline was ‘ Bhagyashree 'Son'. No one wrote that I was the only rookie in history to win this award. It was really unfair when that was done and, to be honest, I hurt myself. ”
An Instagram follower asked the actor who he would choose to date. Sara Ali Khan , Janhvi Kapoor, Ananya Panday and Kiara Advani. Responding to the question, Abhimanyu said, “I never got the opportunity to interact with Sara Ali Khan. I don't know what the gossip of the industry is, but I think that Kiara Advani He is single. So, I'm going out with Kiara.
While Abhimanyu chose Kiara from all the actresses, he confirmed that he is currently single. However, the actor was seen a few months ago with a mysterious girl. Reacting on the same thing, Abhimanyu said: “Oh, that's an old image. It was a photo when she was not single. However, I am single now.
The actor will soon be seen with Shilpa Shetty in Nikamma, which will be released this year. However, we could see a change in the release date of the movie after the blockade in the country.
