Ayushmann Khurrana is scared of playing straight roles. The actor who attended the success party of his film Andhadhun made time from the promotion of his upcoming film Dream Girl.

The actor said, “I fear taking a character that is straightjacketed. In that, there is no elbow room for an actor to perform or give something to the audience. I have fear of scripts that are too vanilla.”

The actor's next film is Dream Girl, and he plays dream girl Pooja. He also will be seen playing seeta in the Rama Leela episode in the film. Ayushmann also has Shubh Mangal Zyada Savdhan in which he plays a gay man.

Ayushmann likes taking up subjects that are taboo in nature. In an earlier interview, when asked if wants to be king of quirks, the actor had said, “it depends on the kind of films I get and would like to do different stuff—but Quirk is my zone—if someone does a film that is taboo –people say Ayushmaan ke zone like film hai.  I own that space so it is important to own your space.  Nobody can do better action than Tiger—Varun is commercial. Kids love him. Knowingly or unknowingly, that has become their space. In between a Varun goes and does a Sui Dhaaga or October and for me it is Andhadhun and it is important to break the mould in between.''
