Mumbai, Ayushmann Khurrana plays a scientist in Vibhu Puri's "Hawaaizaada", a near-illiterate in "Dum Lagake Haisha" and also doing Shoojit Sircar's football film.
The actor, who chooses his projects carefully, is not unnerved by failures or swayed by success.
Q: You're playing scientist Shivkar Babuji Talpade in Vibhu Puri's "Hawaaizaada"?
A: Yes, that's the one I am shooting right now. It's a very difficult film to make. Though I play a real-life character, there isn't much material to fall back on. I am back to this very difficult film after completing Yash Raj Film's "Dum Lagake Haisha". That's done.
Q: That was very quick?
A: Yes, we did it in one 60-day schedule. It's actually very interesting that I play a very educated scientist in "Hawaaizaada" and a near-illiterate in "Dum Lagake Haisha". I play a simpleton who belongs to a shakha. It was quite simple for me to play a simpleton since I am a very simple person in real life. And I'm surrounded by very simple people. My grandfather was also a very simple person. I've used his body language .
