Aparshakti Khurrana made a successful Bollywood debut with Aamir Khan's 'Dangal' last year and his actor-brother Ayushmann said he is glad that the newcomer got the movie on his own merit. Aparshakti played the nephew of wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat (Aamir) in the biographical sports drama. His role of Omkara was the narrator of the film and provided comic relief to the plot.
His second film was this year's Alia Bhatt-Varun Dhawan starrer 'Badrinath Ki Dulhania', in which he had a small role. When asked if he gives advice to Aparshakti in terms of his career, Ayushmann said, "I think he takes his own decisions. I am glad he got the films on his own merit. In 'Dangal', he performed very well. He was the comic relief in the film. People loved his character as he was quite adorable."
Ayushmann also said that after making such a promising debut in Bollywood, his brother will be cautious about the kind of films he chooses to do. "As far as films are concerned, I think he is waiting for the right characters. 'Dangal' was a very special project and his other films will also be special," he added.
