Sunny Singh Is Not Bothered By Comparisons With Ayushmann Khurrana
Sunny Singh shared that he is not worried about being compared to Ayushmann Khurrana as both their films, with the same subject, are set to hit screens around the same time
The cast of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety has been garnering a lot of attention ever since the film released early last year. Male lead Kartik Aaryan has since landed many big films including the upcoming Dostana 2 and Bhool Bhulaiya 2 amongst many others. Even Nushrah Bharucha managed to work opposite Ayushmann Khurrana in Dream Girl and the film crunched big numbers at the box office. Likewise, the third lead of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Sunny Singh is also getting some well-deserved attention. The actor will be starring as the lead in Udja Chaman – which is a remake of a Kannada film, Ondu Motteya Kathe – but the film has been under some conflict lately.
Much like Udja Chaman, another Bollywood film starring Ayushmann, called Bala, has the same story line. But despite the comments from the makers and Ayushmann himself, Sunny still feels confident and unthreatened about Udja Chaman. He said, “I am away from all of this. I am doing a film and I know that there’s another film, Bala, which kind of similar. Initially, I did feel, ‘Why and how is this happening?’ But then I realize that it’s okay. Ayushmann is playing his part and I am playing mine. We are both actors, doing our jobs. I love him and I’m a fan of his acting.”
Sunny added that he recently also met Ayushmann and there is no bad blood between them. He continued, “People might feel that there are comparisons because the films and this conflict are trending, but personally, an actor is only thinking about his movie. Even if they compare, the makers know both have put in their best - which film works at the box office is another thing. I am only concerned about the respect from the audience and makers. Comparisons with him won’t bother me.” Sunny concluded that he had watched Bala’s trailer and liked Ayushmann in it.
