"My brother has this amazingly dramatic name Aparshakti. He is the real footballer of the family. He is as passionate about the game as Shoojit is. I am not really into football,” the ‘Vicky Donor’ actor said here.
“I have played football as a child. But I wouldn’t say I can play the game well enough to look convincing while playing it on screen," he added.
Ayushmann has requested his brother, who is a popular radio jockey, to coach him in football for the movie, which will also feature John Abraham.
"I have requested my brother to spare some time to help me look like a footballer on screen. Besides being a passionate footballer, Aparshakti is also a radio jockey and a theatre actor," said Ayushmann.
“Both John Abraham and Shoojit Sircar play football like professionals. I have to look convincing with them on screen,” he added.
Aparshakti is also making his acting debut in a film titled ‘Saat Uchakke’, produced by Neeraj Pandey.
The movie, based on popular football clubs Mohun Bagan and East Bengal, will be made in mid-2014.
