Dum Laga Ke Haisha taught me the biggest lesson of my career: Ayushmann KhurranaAuthor: Yuvi February 27, 2022
New Delhi: Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana, who is known for his exceptional choice of films and strong acting, has been praised for his performance in Dum Laga Ke Haisha (DLKH), which made him an overnight star.
The film asked the society not to color people with stereotypes which hinder the growth of love. On the 7th anniversary of the film, today the poster boy of Content Cinema in India reveals how DLKH taught him the biggest lesson of his career!
Ayushmann said, “My journey in cinema has been full of learning and I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to have great mentors and incredible scripts. When I debuted with Vicky Donor, I was fortunate to have someone like Shoojit Sircar, who guided me and shaped me as an artiste and a hero. I became a star overnight and believe me, no one can prepare you for this! You feel a little lost when such a heavy moment comes. I have to admit that I didn’t know what hit me. I didn’t know which film to choose and which films to avoid. I had no instructions on how to handle my career. ,
Ayushmann saw a lean patch after the resounding success of Vicky Donor, but he recovered himself with Dum Laga Ke Haisha. After the massive impact of the film, Ayushmann has never looked back and has consistently supported blockbuster social entertainers, earning him the coveted tag of being one of the most influential people in the world by Time magazine.
Ayushmann further said, “I made mistakes along the way. I told myself to focus on what I came into the industry for – to find compelling stories and to be a part of the best content films being made by the most mind-blowing directors. This is when Dum Laga Ke Haisha happened to me and I will be forever grateful to this film as it taught me the biggest lesson of my career – it asked me to choose the material first!”

He continued, “Dum Laga Ke Haisha’s incredible response showed me that my path in the industry was to choose the best scripts, tell the most disruptive, engaging and gripping stories and that success would follow! I haven’t second guessed myself since then. I know that my destiny in cinema is to make films for which the audience has no reference point. I have tried to do just that with a single mindedness.”
Ayushmann will next be seen in films like Anubhav Sinha’s Anek, Doctor Ji and Action Hero produced by Aanand L Rai.
