I'm a huge fan of commercial cinema: Ayushmann Khurrana

Mumbai, Feb 5 (IANS) "Vicky Donor" actor Ayushmann Khurrana says he has no specific plans in place but would love to do "realistic roles" in commercial films.

"I would like to do every kind of cinema. I am a huge fan of commercial cinema as well. There is no plan, but whatever excites me, I go for it," he told IANS in an interview.

In his acting debut "Vicky Donor", Ayushmann played a happy-go-lucky youngster, who becomes a sperm donor to earn some quick money.

The actor says he wants to stick to realistic roles in commercial cinema.

"The line between commercial and realistic cinema is getting blurred. In the commercial space, if you do realistic roles, it will be credible. The best example is Ranbir Kapoor who did 'Barfi!' and 'Rockstar'," he said.

Ayushmann began his tryst with showbiz with MTV's "Roadies".

The 28-year-old says it is now easier for people to make a transition from TV to films.

"It is easy nowadays to make a transition from TV to films. I always say that this is the golden age of Indian cinema, where all kinds of cinema is working and every decently talented person is getting an opportunity - be it from TV or theatre. I guess this is the right time to be an actor," he said.

"Vicky Donor", even with its unique subject, did well at the box Office - something that Ayushmann had not expected.

"To be frank, everyone has their own dreams. I always wanted to be an actor and make it big on the big screen. I never thought that the film would do well. I thought it would get decent critical acclaim, but it surpassed everyone's expectations. So I think it is overwhelming," he said.

The actor is now geared up for the release of his second film "Nautanki Saala" soon. He said he is nervous about the response.

"I think it is good to be nervous and that nervousness should be translated into good performance. But the success depends on the audience."
