Ayushmann Khurrana to learn football from his brother

Ayushmann Khurrana will be seen next in Shoojit Sircar’s upcoming film 1911; which revolves around football. The Vicky Donor actor will now be taking football lessons from his brother; for the ambitious project that is scheduled to go on floors in the middle of this year.

Ayushmann says “My brother has this amazingly dramatic name Aparshakti. He is the real footballer of the family. He is as passionate about the game as Shoojit. I am not really into football. I’ve played football as a child. But I wouldn’t say I can play the game well enough to look convincing while playing it on screen.”

“I have requested my brother to spare some time to help me look like a footballer on screen. The problem is, he is much busier than I am. Besides being a passionate footballer Aparshakti is also a Radio Jockey and a theatre actor. He is also making his acting debut in a film titled Saat Uchakke produced by Neeraj Pandey. So I’ve to bend my time table to suit his schedules. But it’s finally worth it. Both John Abraham and Shoojit Sircar play football like professionals. I’ve to look convincing with them on screen,” he added.
