Ayushmann Khurrana and his 5-year old son have both been learning the piano from one of the best piano teachers of Indian origin. Ayushmann, a born musician and singer gets the chance to extend the parameters of his creativity as he plays a concert pianist in Sriram Raghavan’s next, a noire thriller about a blind musician.
Says Ayushmann, “I see myself as an actor and a singer-musician. When I got a chance to play a pianist it was like….god sent. I’ve learnt the piano from scratch. My teacher is Akshay Verma from Los Angeles. He is one of the best piano teachers.”
The best part of the enriching experience is that his son joins in. “Yes! My 5-year old son is also learning the piano with me. So it’s a magnificent merger of the professional and the personal,” says Ayushmann who laments the absence of time with his children.
“I do see them every day. But yes, I’d like to spend more time with them. My killing schedules don’t give me the luxury of spending enough time with my children. Luckily my wife who is a writer, works out of home. So one of us is with them,” says Ayushmann.
