YouTuber CarryMinati, originally known as Ajey Nagar, enjoys crazy popularity on the web. Well, more than 25 million subscribers on his YT channel are proof to his massive fan-following. So, here's a piece of exciting news for all his fans. It turns out that CarryMinati is all set feature on the big screens, meaning he is making his big Bollywood debut with Amitabh Bachchan and Ajay Devgn's MayDay. Yes, you read that right! The YouTuber has confirmed this exciting news to Hindustan Times.
Ajey Nagar said, "My brother/business head Deepak Char got a call from Kumar Mangat Pathak (Co-Producer at Devgn’s production company) and I have been meaning to align forces with them since a while now. What made it really interesting for me was when I heard I am supposed to play my own character (CarryMinati) & the way it’s going to be shown on screen. I am excited to see how this will unfold." Upon being asked if entering Bollywood was always in his mind, Nagar said that it wasn't been his interest, but he would like to explore everything that comes his way.
"It has never been one of my interests. The main purpose of those skits was to entertain people. Currently I don’t see myself going in that direction but yes I like to experience everything. I agreed to be a part of this film because I had to essay my own character (CarryMinati) and that comes very easily to me. I eat, breathe, sleep and live my character every single day. But I’m hoping I get to learn a thing or two about acting from Amitabh Bachchan and Ajay Devgn. They are personalities I look up to and fondly admire," added CarryMinati.
Spilling the beans on his character in the film, he said, "It’s more like an extension of what I do. I dedicate 10 hours in a day for content creation and I’d like to consider that as my passion and calling, acting and music for me is a medium where I can showcase my art to a more varied audience. For me personally, my authentic acting innings will happen when I get to the opportunity to dedicate myself wholeheartedly to the art unflinchingly, everything else I do right now I consider as a special appearance."
