With misty valleys, crystal clear lakes, gushing waterfalls, ravines, and much more, Shillong is a true gem in the lush green Khasi hills. The city offers some of the most thrilling hikes through the mesmerising pine forests and bridges. While Shillong is a popular name among mountain lovers, a lot of it is yet untouched and unexplored. During the filming of his movie Anek, actor Ayushmann Khurrana had the opportunity to visit some of Shillong’s undiscovered landscapes.

I Get References For Acting From The Locals: Ayushmann Khurrana

Ayushmann Khurrana’s movie Anek was filmed in the northeastern region of India. Speaking about the shoot, Ayushmann said, “In the northeast, we shot in Kaziranga, Assam and Meghalaya, mostly Shillong.” When the actor was asked if he is the kind of actor who would take time out of his work to meet the locals, he said, “That is only my job. My main job is to meet the locals. Acting comes after that. I get the references from them only. Unless you become one with that place.. Jab tak aap ek nehi ho jayenge anek mein.. tab tak wo maza nehi ayega. So, the main part of acting is catching the language.”

“I am always inquisitive. I need to know about the person, from where he is, till how long he has been there, what he eats.. So, I will become very personal with that person. We shot in Shillong, the Scotland of the East. It’s beautiful. Aap ko lagega hi nehi aap India mein shoot kar rahe ho. It’s so unexplored”, added Ayushmann.

I Am A Countryside Person, Says Ayushmann

Elucidating more about travelling, Ayushmann said, “I like travelling. By default, I live out of the suitcase because I am shooting at least three films a year. I mostly travel in the heartlands or maybe in India, as my films are very rooted. Asli India aapko bas chotey shehero mein milega….” He also said that he often gets selfish while travelling with his family. “My family wants to travel abroad. I want to travel in India. Tahira is a city person, I am a countryside person. So, there will always be debates and arguments.” The actor also said that he loves solo travelling. He also added that he is planning to go on a bike trip to Himachal with his friend.
