2017 has been a terrific year for actor Ayushmann Khurrana as two of his turned out to hit at the box office. The success of his recent movies has cemented his position as a bankable actor in the industry and a lot of filmmakers are showing interest in collaborating with the actor. Khurrana had three releases this year – Meri Pyaari Bindu, Bareilly Ki Barfi and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan. While Bareilly Ki Barfi and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan emerged victorious at the ticket window, his first release of the year, Meri Pyaari Bindu, failed to leave an impact on the audience. The actor believes that fate of a film depends on its release date.
“In case of Meri Pyaari Bindu, it got stuck because of the release date. Baahubali 2 had just released and Hindi Medium was to release the next week. In such cases, you have to be confident about the content. I still believe our film could have done better. Shubh Mangal Saavdhan worked because it had a long run in theatres, as the next big release was Judwaa 2, which was only towards the end of the month. I guess we learn from our mistakes,” he says.
