Well, we have always appreciated the unconventional choices made by Ayushmann Khurrana in terms of his films. Like many of his contemporaries, Ayushmann also undergoes extensive prep and research for each of his roles but the one he had to do for the Sriram Raghavan thriller, Andhadhun was a tad bit more owing to the difficulty level. The actor will be seen in the role of a blind pianist for the first time and he took it up upon himself to prepare for more than three months before he gave the first shot.
“Ayushmann wanted to do justice to the character that his director had entrusted him with. He wanted the audience to forget the fact that Ayushmann has perfect vision. He didn’t want audiences to feel that he was caricaturized because he is extremely sensitive to the fact that he is playing a visually impaired man. He went to a blind school for three months straight and spent time with the children to pick up their body language and mannerisms,” informs a production source.
Andhadhun also stars Tabu and Radhika Apte in key roles and it is expected to hit the silver screens on October 5.
