I will be shooting a film for the first time in Prayagraj. Coincidentally, when I was participating in ‘Roadies’, I rode through this city and shot for the series.”

Ayushmann says he was charmed by the beauty of Prayagraj during the shoot of ‘Roadies season 2’.

“I still remember getting mesmerised by it’s history, heritage and architecture. Prayagraj sees the confluence of three rivers – Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati – and I was deeply enamoured by its breathtaking beauty. I will be shooting again in this beautiful city and I can’t wait to go back,” says Ayushmann.

“There is no need even to have a college degree at all, or even high school,” Musk said during an interview with the German automotive publication Auto Bild about his hiring preferences more broadly.

“If somebody graduated from a great university, that may be an indication that they will be capable of great things, but it’s not necessarily the case. If you look at, say, people like Bill Gates or Larry Ellison, Steve Jobs, these guys didna¿t graduate from college, but if you had a chance to hire them, of course that would be a good idea.”
