VJ-turned-actor Ayushmann Khurrana, who will be seen sharing screen space with Sonam Kapoor in Yash Raj Films next, says that the actress is a very simple girl in real life.
Sonam is known for her ‘smart’ style sense at red carpet events and during movie promotions. “It’s been a great experience working with her. People get disillusioned by the fashionista that they see at media events. But in reality she is a very simple girl,” the 29-year-old told reporters in a group interview.
“She has seen the journey in her career right from being an AD (assistant director) to now as one of the biggest stars,” he added.
Ayushmann, who made a successful debut in Bollywood with John Abraham’s debut production venture ‘Vicky Donor’, was later seen in Rohan Sippy-directed ‘Nautanki Saala!’. Apart from showing his acting capabilities, he also crooned songs in both his films and says that he never ‘aspired to be a singer’.
“I never aspired to be a singer. I always wanted to be an actor. I thought I am more of an actor than singer. Moreover, a singer actor lends more credibility to his work as he can lend his voice to his own character,” he said. “Having said that, I cannot sing all my songs. My voice has a certain texture and I am not a versatile singer. I can sing songs of a particular genre,” he added.
