Preparation important for struggling actors: Ayushmann
Mumbai: Ayushmann Khurrana, who has successfully gone on to become an actor from being a vee-jay, says there is no dearth of opportunity in Bollywood and it is all about preparation for struggling actors.
"There are a lot of people coming to Mumbai everyday to be actors and it is very important to be at the right place at the right time. And your preparation is very important because success comes when preparation meets opportunity," the 28-year-old said here on Tuesday at the music launch of his film 'Nautanki Saala'.
"There is no dearth of opportunities in Mumbai but there is definitely lack of preparation with all the struggling actors maybe," he added.
Kunaal Roy Kapoor, his 'Nautanki Saala' co-star, feels struggling actors should not lose hope and keep on working their craft.
"I have been acting on stage since I was 12... So, I think if anyone wants to be an actor, then they should just go out and try and get work," Kunaal said.
"And as Ayushmann said, one thing leads to another and if you are truly talented, a lot of people do get noticed and do get picked up. People coming to city should not lose hope and should keep on improving their craft," he added.
Ayushmann made his big screen debut with "Vicky Donor" last year and Kunaal was seen in 'Delhi Belly'.
Directed by Rohan Sippy, 'Nautanki Saala' hits theatres on April 12.
