Bollywood star Ayushmann Khurrana urged his deep desire to play a negative character like the joker in ‘Batman’. In his Instagram post, he shared a painting by artist Swapnil Pawar that depicts the actor in the “Joker” avatar. This painting is a part of the artist’s “Just Imagine” series where other Bollywood actors also featured in.
Ayushmann appreciated the work of art and expressed his wish to perform the iconic villain from the world of “Batman”. Earlier this year, Joaquin Phoenix won the Best Actor award at the Oscars for his titular role in the Todd Phillips’ much-acclaimed blockbuster, “Joker”. In 2009, Heath Ledger won an Oscar as Best Supporting Actor playing Joker in Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight”.
“Do I really look like a guy with a plan? Do you know what I am? I’m a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do with one if I caught it … I’m an Agent of Chaos!” – Sinister, menacing, evil, cold, conniving yet brilliant, genius – have always thought of playing a negative character like Joker. Thank you @swapnilmpawar for reading my mind and this incredible artwork!” wrote Ayushmann in his Instagram post.
Recently, Ayushmann had expressed in a social media post that he is eager to essay the role of the Professor (played by Alvaro Morte) in the Spanish web series “Money Heist”.
On the work front, Ayushmann Khurrana will next be seen in Shoojit Sircar’s “Gulabo Sitabo” where he stars alongside Amitabh Bachchan. The film is slated to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on June 12.
