After establishing his name as a prominent Radio Jockey and television presenter, Aparshakti Khurana is now trying his best to hit his stride at acting. Khurana made his acting debut with the Sanjeev Sharma-directed dramedy Saat Uchakkey in 2016, before receiving positive reviews for his performance in Nitesh Tiwari’s blockbuster sports drama Dangal (2016), starring Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan in the lead role.
Aparshakti Khurana is now gearing himself up for the release of his forthcoming Hindi movie, titled Stree. Stree is a horror comedy film, headlined by Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor. Not many people know but Aparshakti is the younger brother of talented actor Ayushmann Khurrana.
When two brothers are in the same profession, we tend to make all sort of assumptions about competition and sibling rivalry between them. So when we asked Aparshakti Khurana about any rivalry with brother Ayushmann Khurrana, he totally denies it and says:
“No, never. Let me explain to you why there can never be any sibling rivalry between us. When I was in 3rd or 4th standard, I talked to my brother in a very harsh and loud voice. My father scolded me badly that day. I never raised my voice in front of my brother ever since. Whenever he is around, I touch his feet. Everyday. When you start treating your elder brother as a father figure, then there is no space for sibling rivalry. My brother is like a father figure to me.”
Aparshakti Khurana adds that even if he is discussing or debating over anything with brother Ayushmann Khurrana, he does it in a very respectful manner and with a mellow tone of voice.
“Even if we are discussing anything or debating over any issue, I never cross my limit. I never raise my voice. I always hold him in high regards. Ayushmman bhaiya is just two and a half year elder to me. I touch his feet. How can I even think of any kind of rivalry with him?”
Produced by Dinesh Vijan and directed by debutant Amar Kaushik, Stree is set to enter cinemas on 31st August.
