When asked Ayshmann whether he felt that he was taking a risk by doing ‘Andhadun’ or it more of a challenge to him, he said, “I think doing film like ‘Andhadun is not a risk but it’s a challenge because I have never tried something like this. Sriram Raghavan is a seasoned director and he knows his genre really well so, it can’t be a risk. He knows how to make a thriller films as he is master of thriller films so, it’s an honor to work with him. I can’t be calling it as a risk but I think it’s a great career move”
Talking about his character in the film Ayushmann said, “I am playing blind pianist in the film. First time, I am playing character of musician in the film so, I learned to play piano for that. I used to practice it for 4 hours a day because it’s a new instrument for me.”

I am having image of boy next door or an actor who do slice of life films which I really wanted to break. I think you can’t break your image from every single film that you do. I think you have to break your image after establishing yourself in the industry after 4-5 years and try something different that you want to do”
