Ayushman Khurana, who was named best male debut and also the best male playback singer at the 58th Filmfare Awards, said he was least expecting to win two Black Ladies as the award statuettes are called.
“I had my own set of conspiracy theories and I had met Jitesh (Pillai) (Filmfare magazine editor) for the first time and I told him, ‘Sir you will give it to someone else, what will happen to me, no one knows me here, I have come from Chandigarh.’ He said ‘I don’t decide, we have a set of jury members who do’,” the 28-year-old said here Tuesday at the unveiling of the magazine’s special awards edition.
Ayushman won the award for his film “Vicky Donor” while he won the playback singer awards for his song ‘Paani da rang’ from the same film.
He says he did not have any expectations also because of the kind of debuts 2012 saw.
“I was not thinking at all, expectations were minimal. It was the year of the debutantes and everyone was so good, everyone is a package,” said Ayushman, who came into filmdom along with other new faces like Arjun Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra.
Now that Ayushman has two Black Ladies, he confesses he is simply overjoyed.
“I was expecting one award, I was nominated in two categories and I got two awards. I couldn’t believe. It feels good when life gives you surprises, you should have least expectations,” Ayushman said.
“I did not expect, I am a very practical person. But I am just overjoyed, in seventh heaven right now that I have got two beautiful Filmfare ladies at my place,” he added.
Ayushman will soon be seen in “Nautanki Saala” and will start shooting for “Hamara Bajaj.”

Ayushmaan Ko Bi Filmfare Milgaya, Bhai Salman Ko Kab Milega Best Actor
Ayushmann deserve filmfare award but some undeserving actors has got 14 filmfare awards which clearly shows that filmfare awards r fixed.
Few days back actor Saif ali khan openly said that all awards functions r fixed so Ayushmann getting 2 awards is not a big achievement.
You were not deserving either. Sonu Nigan was.
To be fair I dont think anyone was expecting you to win one award let alone two but rejoice nonetheless as winning is all that matters.
In recent interview Saif said on TOI that all awards are rubbish including national awards. Although he was the anchor with SRK.
why this media is promoting Ayusman so much but just wait and watch for his next couple of movies and the answer will be in front of the world.
