MUMBAI—Riding high on the success of “Bareilly Ki Barfi” and the even better faring for his solo release, “Shubh Mangal Saavdhan,” Ayushmann Khurrana’s birthday this year calls for triple celebrations for him. The actor, who has been giving us movies with unconventional content is a multifaceted talent, a popular columnist with the newspaper DNA, a musician, singer and lyricist, who also holds his concerts.

As Ayushmann Khurrana turns 33 on Sept. 14, we have five interesting quotes from his career of five years as an actor:

On his love for music and acting:

“From musicals to plays, I was part of all things theatrical all through my school life in Chandigarh, and this helped me develop a strong love for theater, music and acting.”

On the casting-couch:

“I have been through that initially when I was part of the industry. I was a TV anchor, so a casting director directly told me that I would have to oblige him. If I had not been straight, I might have even given it a thought! So yeah, the casting-couch exists, but eventually, it’s your talent or potential as an actor or performer that lasts. You don’t need to give in to such stuff!”

On his screen image:

“ I am the middle-class superhero!”

On India’s entertainment culture:

“Our country is culturally very different. Only cricketers and actors are mostly in the spotlight. It has been like that since ages.”

On his choice of films:

“I am meant for unconventional films, which is why I will be skeptical of choosing any conventional film.”
