Ayushmann Khurrana inspired by Salvador Dalí: Wanted to know how his mind worked

Ayushmann Khurrana is currently reading up on the life and times of Salvador Dalí. The actor's interest in Dalí peaked after bingeing the blockbuster series, Money Heist. In the show, the Dalí masks serve as a symbol of resistance and national pride. 

“This lockdown has really fuelled my interest to learn new things and I have just started reading up on Salvador Dali, the iconic Spanish surreal artist. My interest to know about his life and works peaked when I watched Money Heist and I really wanted to know more,” says Ayushmann. “He was a man of many talents. He painted, was into graphic arts, had interest in films, sculpture, design, photography, etc. Basically, he was drawn to all things creative and I just wanted to read up on how his mind worked. People who are multi-faceted and multi-talented are huge inspirations to me. I look to learn from their lives.”

Ayushmann had earlier expressed interest to play El Professor from Money Heist. He had shared a video of himself playing Bella Ciao on the piano. “I want to be the professor. That's why I'm wearing similar glasses and playing Bella Ciao. I want to put this out in the universe,” he had written. 

Ayushamann has also hailed Kishore Kumar as a huge inspiration on his life and career. He says, “I have been very vocal about being intrigued by Kishore Kumar too. Such icons are an institution in themselves and have left behind so many learnings for us to grasp, for us to understand. I’m thoroughly enjoying learning about their lives, their philosophies and their beliefs.”
