Ayushmann Khurana: Winning Best Actor award for a comedy is extremely special

Ayushmann Khurrana won his first Best Actor award in a mainstream category. He took home Best Actor in a Comic Role for his brilliant performance in Dream Girl 2 at Zee Cine Awards last night. Ayushmann, who is known for his uplifting social dramas and has won several Best Actor awards before, including the National Award for Andhadhun, and he says this win is extremely special for him.

Ayushmann says, “Comedy is one of the hardest genres to act in and I’m grateful to the audience for showering me with so much love for the Dream Girl franchise. Winning Best Actor awards are always special but to win it for a comedy film, is extremely validating.“

He adds, “Comedies are universally appealing films. To have a hit comedy means one has reached out to this wide audience base and entertained them and they have in return accepted the actor in that thay genre. I have always wanted to be an entertainer and so, it is the best prize for me. I want my films to be watched by the entire country and if I can entertain them, that’s the best feeling.”

Ayushmann further says, “Dream Girl franchise is a prized one for me, also because I now have a hit comic franchise to my credit. I have to thank my friend and director Raaj Shaandilya and Ekta Kapoor, my producer, who thought I could helm this part. Their belief and vision to make India laugh has delivered blockbuster results at the box office.”

He says, “I’m honoured to win the Best Actor award at Zee Cine Awards and I hope to contribute to cinema in every way and for as many years as possible. In my career, I have received many Best Actor awards for my serious, social dramas. This is my first Best Actor award in a mainstream category. So, I will cherish this a lot.”
