Actor Ayushmann Khurrana tunes into his RJ days and attributes his choice to pursue performing to the boldness he gained from radio.

Before he turned the actor and musician his followers know him as at this time, Ayushmann Khurrana was a radio jockey. At the age of twenty-two, he started his profession in showbiz by internet hosting the breakfast present, which was coincidentally about Bollywood!

On World Radio Day (February 13), he displays on his time on the waves, which gave him his first style of fame.

“Here I was at my first job and they had given me the breakfast show and they had hugely promoted that show. I was on the hoardings in Delhi. So, that was really new for that time. We did a lot of disruptive content in 2006 when radio was going through the second phase and we started as a retro station! At 22, I don’t think there was anyone else, in my age group, who was well versed with retro Bollywood apart from me,” he recollects.

The 37-year-old, who completes 10 years within the movie business with Vicky Donor (2012), feels it’s “very important” for everybody to cherish the start line of 1’s profession.

Khurrana says, “That’s the formative years of someone’s career. It can either make you or break you and I was fortunate to be surrounded by creative people who were looking to disrupt.”

He credit his radio stint for giving him the boldness that he may change into an actor sooner or later.

“I was always inclined to pursue a profession in entertainment and performance arts and my stint as a radio jockey really helped me get confident about myself. The success I saw with radio taught me that I could back myself and explore to become an entertainer. It is such a coincidence that I hosted some really off-centre shows. Looking back I feel I was always drawn to out of the ordinary concepts and that’s pretty much become my signature today as I tend to pick subjects that are fresh and unique,” he ends.
