Ayushmann Khurrana recreates Phool Aur Kaante’s iconic pose. ‘OG action hero ko salaam’
Ayushmann Khurrana, who is presently promoting the film An Action Hero, took to Instagram on Wednesday to pay tribute to Ajay Devgn’s 1990s action persona by recreating his iconic pose from the 1991 film Phool Aur Kaante. This was Ajay’s Bollywood debut performance, which established him as an action star.
Ayushmann posted a selfie of himself atop two cabs with the caption, “OG Action Hero to the next Action Hero, peace. This Friday, #AnActionHero will be available on iTunes and Google Play.
Previously, Ayushmann had uploaded a video with the modern action icon Tiger Shroff in which they engaged in a thumb war for the title of greatest action star.
An Action Star is Ayushmann’s debut in action films. This is his third album release this year, following Anek and Doctor G. Both of these films failed to wow the audience or generate significant box office revenue. In a recent interview with PTI, the actor of Dream Girl discussed departing from his regular filmmaking style, stating, “I need to break (apart) from it. If I desire a theatrical release, I must steer clear of sensitive topics and create a more approachable picture. That is the evolution or perhaps the knowledge I’ve gained over the past two years. This film (An Action Hero) contains no explicit message. It’s sheer excitement and fun.”
He continued, “I am always searching for something that contradicts my image. This filled the description not only because of the character’s juiciness but also because it is a very unique film and character for me.”
