Star kids are launched in a grand way in Bollywood, but actor Ayushmann Khurrana believes that they are no longer given preferential treatment and one does not need to fall into that bracket to survive in the industry.
"I think it is the best phase of Indian cinema. You don't have to be a star kid to get launched. This is not just for actors but for everyone like directors, writers, lyricists and others. I am glad I am here today. If I was born 15 years back, then I don't think I would get the chance that a star kid would have got.''
After being in the industry for four years, the 31 year old thinks the best part of his profession is that he gets special treatment! "The best part is you are treated well, you get special attention in restaurants and airports." The "Vicky Donor" actor said he goes with his instincts while choosing a film.
Ayushmann's film "Dum Laga Ke Haisha" was named as the winner of the Best Hindi Film at the 63rd National Film Awards. ''With ''Dum Laga Ke Haisha'', I have got more respect as an actor. When Aditya Chopra offered me the film, he never expected I will do it...It happened after 'Vicky Donor'. He thought I will go the mainstream way doing conventional hero roles. I am glad that the film connected with the jury.''
