Actor Aparshakti Khurana has established himself as a bankable actor in the last few years. So much so, that his performances have at times stood out despite not being in the lead. However, that is not something which makes him beam with pride. Talking to IANS, Aparshakti says, "I would really love to be part of films which say 'Wow! what a film! " where people love me and the whole film. I don't want to read a review which says Apar was the saving grace. Of course I would love that people praise my performance but at the end of the day I want the family to win. You don't want to be the sole bread earner."
The actor, who started his journey in films with Dangal (2016) goes on to add, "In today's day and age everyone works together. Even in film when everyone's work is appreciated, you feel happy and those are complete film. In a selfish way, I would like that I get appreciated but I don't have place for that kind of selfishness in me. Other artists might be okay with it but I am not."
Aparshakti has been part of good scripts from the go. With films such as "Stree" (2018),A "Luka Chuppi" (2019) and "Street Dancer" (2020) to his credit, he has entertained his audience well so far.
However, he doesn't like to plan his future.
Aparshakti shares, "I have not planned my journey so far and now is not the time to start planning. Things are slowly and steadily moving in right direction and making me do things that I always wanted to do. I would take one step at a time and I was to do films which make me happy and I would want to stay relevant."
Meanwhile, Aparshakti Khurana is all set to make his digital debut in the Vikramaditya Motwane web series Stardust. The series is a fictional take on the Indian film industry from 1947 to 1989, and will explore the clash between two superstars.
Apart from the web series, Aparshakti has a string of releases lined up this year. These include the comedy film Helmet with Pranutan. The actor is currently shooting for his new film, an untitled thriller alongside R. Madhavan, Darshan Kumaar and Khushali Kumar.
