Talking about how he started assisting Sircar in the first place, the actor said: "Actually it started when one day I was late for 'Vicky Donor', so Shoojit made me the fourth assistant director who has to clap every time the shoot starts. I told him that I was enjoying it and he told me to start assisting him."
After the stupendous success of Sircar-directed "Vicky Donor", VJ-turned-actor Ayushmann became a star.
When asked about his future projects, he said: "After this (Sippy's film), I will start 'Humara Bajaj'. I am reading a few scripts right now and I will sign one of them soon."
