While Ayushmann Khurrana has agreed to be a part of Shoojit Sircar's ambitious football film 1911 which Shoojit will make in mid-2014, Ayushmann candidly admits that he isn't much of a footballer and needs to learn the ropes of the game from his brother.
Says Ayushmann, "My brother has this amazingly dramatic name Aparshakti. He is the real footballer of the family. He is as passionate about the game as Shoojit. I am not really into football. I've played football as a child. But I wouldn't say I can play the game well enough to look convincing while playing it on screen."
Says Ayushmann, "I have requested my brother to spare some time to help me look like a footballer on screen. The problem is, he is much busier than I am. Besides being a passionate footballer Aparshakti is also a Radio Jockey and a theatre actor. He is also making his acting debut in a film titled Saat Uchakke produced by Neeraj Pandey. So I've to bend my time table to suit his schedules. But it's finally worth it. Both John Abraham and Shoojit Sircar play football like professionals. I've to look convincing with them on screen."
