In the last few years, Ayushmann Khurrana has proved to be one of the most versatile actors. While his talent and choice of films keeps surprising audiences, his wife Tahira Kashyap is also keen to take up direction of feature films. The talented lady has already directed two short films – Toffee and Pinni. Both have been well-received by critics and viewers alike.
Recently, when a leading daily got in conversation with Tahira, she said that she views the forced-break, given the lockdown, as a silver-lining and is reading a lot of scripts. Here’s what she had to say, “I am taking baby steps. I am slowly and gradually moving towards direction. My films, Toffee and Pinni received a lot of love. I have written a couple of feature films. The intention is to make a feature film. Because of this lockdown, now there is a pause in everybody’s lives. I don’t know what the future holds but the dreams and aspirations are certainly there.”
When she was asked about directing Ayushmann Khurrana in a feature film in the near future, she said with utmost honesty, “I would really love to work with him from the perspective of directing a wonderful artiste. He has grown tremendously as an artiste. But at the same time, he is senior to me when it comes to working. So I need to earn myself a couple of films or a position where I deserve to direct him.”
Looks like we have got to wait a little longer for this power-packed collaboration. Meanwhile Ayushmann’s next film, Gulabo Sitabo, is set to release on the OTT platform on June 12. It pairs the actor with Amitabh Bachchan for the first time ever.
