And how can we forget Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker that has taken movie buffs across the world by storm?

In an interview with Mid-Day, Ayushmann Khurrana said that he is looking forward to playing a dark role now. “The audience hasn't seen the dark side to me. I would love to play a negative character, say a desi version of the Joker. I find the character fascinating. He represents the side that we all have but don't acknowledge; the part that doesn't want to conform to social niceties."

And he believes that we need to have strong writers to write such stellar roles. “To make an Indian version of Joker, you need the support of a scriptwriter and a director [who] share the same vision."
