Mumbai. Ayushmann Khurrana and Yami Gautam made a grand debut with ‘Vicky Donor’. Since then both have never looked back and choose more than one script and character. However, in the ‘News 18 Show Reel’, both the actors admitted that they had to put a lot of thought into choosing the right debut project as both were outsiders. People knew that if his first film did not work, he would not get a second chance. Ayushmann told that he had rejected 5 scripts before ‘Vicky Donor’.
Ayushmann Khurrana was a TV presenter and a radio jockey before appearing in films. He said, “I observed stars closely when I interviewed them as a journalist or TV anchor. I saw their success and failures and learned a lot from them. I had said no to at least 5 films before doing ‘Vicky Donor’.”
Vicky Kaushal further said, “I was sure that I am doing TV and radio. But if I come in films as a lead then it will be different because I will not get second chance because I am not from this industry. Yami Gautam also believed in the same. He said that he gives more than 100 percent for each of his films. They know that they have only one chance to prove themselves.
Yami Gautam said in the News18 show Reel, “I do not use my phone on the set as it causes distraction. When the audience is watching you on screen, they will not know what kind of mood you were in while shooting. I have to give more than 100 per cent. I am aware of the background I come from and my struggles and I will not get many opportunities.
Yami Gautam further said, “This is the only chance I have and I have to prove myself every time with every film. That’s the difference when you come from outside as compared to being a part of the industry.”
