John Abraham: 'Ayushmann is perfect star for Hamara Bajaj'

By
Ayushmann Khurrana
VJ-turned-actor Ayushmann Khurrana has been signed for John Abraham's Hamara Bajaj.

Khurrana is making his acting debut in Bollywood with Vicky Donor, directed by Shoojit Sircar. In Hamara Bajaj, he plays a young man called Sanjay Bajaj who is a struggling actor.

Ayushmann told PTI: "There is a two-film contract and I have signed my next film with Soojit Sircar and John. It is a drama about a small time guy who wants to be an actor and eventually becomes a star. But there are challenges."

Shooting for the film begins in December 2012.

"[Hamara Bajaj] will practically be my third film because I have ten months in between so I may do another movie. I am reading scripts and taking time. I have taken four years for my debut film, so I am in no hurry," explained Khurrana.

Speaking to Digital Spy, John Abraham said that he has reunited the team of Vicky Donor for his second home production.

"I have Ayushmann and Shootjit for Hamara Bajaj," he said. "We've used the tagline from a very popular commercial in India. And we've written a beautiful script. I think Ayushmann is the perfect star for the role. He is a complete natural."

Vicky Donor tells the story of the unemployed Vicky, who is persuaded by a doctor to donate his sperm to make money.

The film is released on Friday 23rd April, 2012.
