According to Hindustan Times, CarryMinati (real name Ajey Nagar) has signed Ajay Devgn & Amitabh Bachchan starrer edge-of-the-seat human-drama ‘Mayday’. The makers have roped him in for a special role.
Confirming this news, Carry stated, “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.”
He also said that he won’t be needed to step out of his comfort zone for the role. “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,“ the 21-year-old revealed.
Carry, who enjoys 27 million subscribers on YouTube, said that the main purpose of his short skits was to simply entertain people.
Talking about his big-ticket debut, Carry revealed, “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.”
Carry also shared that ‘Mayday’ isn’t his “full-fledged debut”, however, it is an extension of what he does.
