"Music is the essence of the film industry. When I was in school between dance and music, I chose music. In college between music and theatre, I chose theatre. For me acting and singing are parallel vectors," Ayushmann told reporters here at the launch of the single Ik Vaari.
"It would be right to say that I am a mixture of both actor and singer. My life is incomplete without music," he said.
Ayushmann has sung a single Ik Vaari which is directed by Pradeep Sarkar and produced by Bhushan Kumar's T-Series.
The makers of the song have also rehashed few lines from the original Aashiqui song.
"It's for the first time that I have worked on a rehash or remix of a song. The songs that I have done so far are not commercial, they (songs) have been rustic. The Aashiqui part adds more to the zing," Ayushmann added.
The actor feels privileged to be directed by Sarkar. "I love Bengali people; I like Kolkata. It seems I have a special connection with Bengali culture," he added. Towards the end of the song the famous Aashiqui pose is recreated by the Vicky Donor actor and model Ayesha Sharma romancing under a jacket.
"I was not intimidated doing the Aashiqui pose. I am delighted to be working with Ayushmann and directed by Pradeep Sarkar," Ayesha said.
