Choose right project and right script, VJ-turned-actor Ayushmann Khurrana tells TV actors who want to make it big in Bollywood because he feels a bad start can have a long term effect on their career.

"Everybody on television today is well groomed and I think they all have the capability to make it big on silver screen, but the idea is to choose the right project and the right script," the 28-year-old told.

Ayushmann was lucky to enter Bollywood with hit movie "Vicky Donor", which boasts of unique and fresh script.

Talking about his own decision, he said that he was getting film offers.

"But I waited for four years to choose the right project. I feel that the attention span of TV audience is very small, but when it comes to films, people don't forget bad films. So one need to make the right choice about the films," he said.

Ask him about the factors he keeps in mind while choosing a script, he said it's all about "maintaining a right balance between classes and masses".

"Good script attracts me. Also, I need to connect myself with the script. I think I have stuck the right balance between classes and masses. If you strike that balance of being aspirational and having a mass connect, then that would be the perfect kind of script," said Ayushmann who was here to launch the fall-winter collection of Woodland.

He feels blessed to be part of the Indian film industry at a time when it is enjoying its golden period.

"Bollywood is going though a golden era currently as every kind of cinema is working today. If films like 'English Vinglish', 'Paan Singh Tomar' and 'Vicky Donor' are working well, then there are films like 'Dabangg' and 'Rowdy Rathore', which are equally doing good," he said

"This is the era when the Indian film industry is looking beyond nepotism. It's open to outsiders also. So if you have certain talent and if you get the right opportunity, then nobody can stop you. I am born in the brighter time," he added.

Currently shooting for "Hamara Bajaj" and "Nautanki Saala", he says he has always been a busy person, "but now people started respecting me more because of addition of cinema in my profile.

"I am busy with events, composition and films. I get at least two film offers everyday day, though I have to make the right choices so I am busy making my career," he said.

As far as TV assignments go, he said that "TV will always be a second fiddle to the Indian film industry. I will host award shows, but I'll be more selective on television."

Ayushmann, who originally hails from Chandigarh, is married to his childhood sweetheart Tahira, an author who is turning into a scriptwriter soon.
