Actor singer Ayushmann Khurrana, who will soon be seen in “Hawaaizaada”, says making the movie was as tough as it must have been for the film’s inspiration, scientist Shivkar Bapuji Talpade, to make an airplane.
Directed by Vibhu Puri, “Hawaaizaada” is based on the life of scientist Shivkar Bapuji Talpade, who is believed to have built India’s first unmanned airplane.
“Yes, ‘Hawaaizaada’ was a difficult film. It was as difficult as making the first aircraft of the world. The film took almost one-and-a-half years to complete,” Ayushmann said at the launch of the film’s trailer here Tuesday.
‘Hawaizaada’ will change my image: Ayushmann
Ayushmann Khurrana feels his upcoming film “Hawaizaada” will be an image change for him.
“After ‘Vicky’ Donor, Vibhu Puri (director) offered me this amazing story of an unsung hero. The way he has fictionalised it, the way he has taken the creative liberty and added his own flavour to the story of a guy who made world’s first aircraft is incredible.
“So, I think there was no plan, but, yes, this will be an image change by default because I was playing quintessential north Indian guy till now and this time I am playing a Maharashtrian,” Ayushmann said at the trailer launch of “Hawaizaada” here Tuesday.
The film also stars Mithun Chakraborty and Pallavi Sharda. It will hit screens Jan 30, 2015.
