Ayushmann Khurrana will play the lead role in An Action Hero
Tiger Shroff has some of the best action movies in Bollywood and there are no two ways about this. But with Ayushman Khurrana’s next film, An Action Hero, will the actor steal Tiger Shroff’s spot? Well, this is the premise of the new, fun video shared by both actors on Instagram. The video begins with Tiger Shroff singing Jeda Nasha, a song from An Action Hero at the gym. Ayushmann interrupts him and asks: “Acting ke saath gaana gaake tu mere pete pe kyu laat mar raha hai? (Why are you taking over my genre by singing and acting).” To this, Tiger says: “Tu bhi toh An Action Hero kar raha hai na (Well, you also are doing An Action Hero, aren’t you?)”
Then Tiger Shroff challenges Ayushmann Khurrana to show off how much he has learnt while working on the action film. Just when you think the video will feature a cool face-off between the two actors, they are seen settling the debate over a game of thumb war.
“Two action heroes apni heropanti dikhate hue,” the caption read. “Catch #AnActionHero in cinemas this Friday.” Actor Aparshakti Khurana — Ayushmann’s brother — replied to the post with a fire emoji. Meanwhile, actor-choreographer Shakti Mohan said, “Hope no one got injured in this fight,” with laughing emojis.

Recently, Ayushmann Khurrana also shared a post expressing his love for Shah Rukh Khan amid the promotions of An Action Hero. In the image, he is seen looking at Mannat, SRK’s house in Mumbai, from the sunroof of his car. In the caption, Ayushmann said, “Mannat se guzar raha tha. Toh ek mannat maang li. (I was passing by Mannat so I stopped to ask for a wish). #AnActionHero #2ndDecember #SRKian.”
Ayushmann Khurrana also opened up about the lacklustre box office performance of one of his recent releases, Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui. According to a report by OTT Play, Ayushmann said, “I started with movies on taboo subjects. I suppose the type of subjects-it has to be a community viewing, and it has to have a wider film-the kids have also been watching. In fact, my last three films, including an LGBTQ film (Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui), really don’t do well commercially because, unfortunately, our country is homophobic.”
Speaking about his career, Ayushmann Khurrana said, “I think I’m unshakeable. If I stop taking risks, I will be conventional. I have always been unconventional, and I make those choices. I will be taking them in the future as well, regardless of success or failure. I just keep pushing the boundaries, and that’s the beauty of the budgeting of the films, too. My films are mostly low- to mid-budget, so no one loses money and I can afford to take risks.”
Ayushmann Khurrana’s An Action Hero will release in theatres on December 2 and also stars Jaideep Ahlawat.
