Ayushmann Khurrana Gets ANOTHER Hit in Bala. What Makes Him Race Ahead of the Competition?
Brand Ayushmann is unstoppable. Trade experts discuss his formula for success
After seven consecutive hits Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017), Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, Andha Dhun (2018), Badhaai Ho(2018),Article 15, Dream Girl(2019) and now Bala which is poised to become another big success, Ayushmann Khurrana has unarguably consolidated his position as the new superstar of Hindi cinema. “And why not,” reasons filmmaker Shoojit Sircar to whom goes the credit for introducing Ayushmann in Vicki Donor. “Ayushmann is exceptionally talented, very hardworking and intelligent. He instinctively knows which scripts to take up and once he is in a project he is fully committed.”
Trade expert Amod Mehra feels there is something special about Ayushmann that draws audiences to his films. “In the past we had dependable actors such as Sanjeev Kumar and Amol Palekar. But none like Ayushmann Khurrana, as he is the perfect hero. He has the looks as well as can act. He also is the first actor to have carried the entire film on his own shoulders with back to back seven hits in a row.” Trade analyst Girish Johar feels Ayushmann’s time begins now. “Ayushman is poised to have seven back-to-back hits with Bala. This is something very unique and interesting. No doubt Ayushman has earned this with lot of hard work, passion and great deal of thoughts. He has taken the path which very few actors dare.”
