“I’m getting those scripts right now where I’m the lead” Aparshakti Khurana


Aparshakti Khurana has carved a niche for himself in the film industry by portraying various characters in a number of films. The actor however got his first debut as a solo lead in Helmet. Even though the film received a lukewarm response, he believes that it added a new leaf to his career.

“It makes complete sense to keep doing lead roles now and if the fraternity is sending you such scripts, it’s a no brainer. When you do get such scripts, why would pick up stories where you’re the second lead?” he asks.

The actor further said, “I’m getting those scripts right now where I’m the lead. I’m trying to zero down on a few of them.”

The actor also confessed that he would be open to play the second lead only if he gets a film starring Aamir Khan, Vijay Sethupathi, Kamal Haasan or Amitabh Bachchan. However, he also quickly adds “I’ll choose films keeping an open mind. I wouldn’t think, my journey as a lead actor is going on right now. If I get to be a part of films with them, I don’ have to think twice because I’ll be surrounded with people who will only make me a better actor.”

Talking about his future plans the 34-year-old says, “I just bought a new apartment in Mumbai. The interior designing is going on, which Aakriti (his wife) is taking care of. That’s going to take a couple of more months to get sorted. Arzoie (his daughter) is still in Chandigarh because it will be difficult for her to come and again shift base to the new place. She needs to be comfortable; we can’t keep changing her surroundings,” signs off Khurana.
