Ayushmann Khurrana is on a high. Both of his back-to-back releases ‘Ki Barfi’ and ‘Shubh Mangal Saavadhan’ have not only done well at the box-office but also garnered critical appreciation. 

The actor is now gearing up for his upcoming project with filmmaker Sriram Raghavan, which he says, will "shock" the audience.

The yet-to-be-titled thriller will reportedly feature Ayushmann as a blind concert pianist.

"I am glad I've taken my time. I have dabbled two different characters but I haven't dabbled two genres. My films have been medium budget ones, set in small towns about middle class family where I play relatable good boy characters,” said the actor to PTI.

"I don't want to change myself with every film. Let me settle for this and then I'll do a makeover so that it should be a shocker for people. So as a character, this will definitely shock people," he added.

He refused to divulge any further details about the movie.

This is the first time Ayushmann is collaborating with Raghavan, who has previously given memorable crime-thrillers, such as "Ek Hasina Thi", "Johnny Gaddaar" and "Badlapur".

In all his movies be it "Vicky Donor", "Dum Laga Ke Haisha", "Barailey Ki Barfi" and "Shubh Mangal Saavdhan" he has played realistic roles. The actor said that he is always drawn to such roles.

"I love doing films which are real, relatable because I come from a theatre background, I travelled everywhere with my group and interacted with the masses. Then I joined radio which has a direct connect and I think that connect translated into films,” he concluded.
