Ayushmann Khurrana, the young star of Bollywood, is also called the ‘poster boy of content cinema’ in India because of his progressive and entertainment-packed films, through his films he has been able to reach the issues related to the well being of the society.
On the occasion of completing three years of the release of his blockbuster family entertainer, Badhaai Ho, Ayushmann says he is very happy with the positive impact the film has on society.
Ayushmann, who has delivered eight back-to-back hits, says, “Most of my films are for families, that the family members come together and connect with the film.
It is our endeavor that the audience is entertained and the message of the film reaches them.
Luckily, I have got an opportunity to work on a completely new and unique script so far, and these films are equally entertaining for audiences of all ages of the family.”
He further added, “For me the film ‘Badhaai Ho’ fulfills every criterion and I am fortunate that this film has made an important issue like late pregnancy in India a topic of discussion among the people.
We are talking about such things in the same way. We react the way our society has taught us.”
Ayushmann has been recognized by Time magazine as one of the most influential people in the world for his films impacting society.
He adds, “Through this film, we wanted to show people that in reality it is not as big a deal as we believe. We wanted people to understand everything related to this issue very well.
We wanted to tell people that this should not be seen as a taboo. For me, this was the biggest success of ‘Badhaai Ho’.
My upcoming film ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ also falls in the same category and is definitely going to entertain the whole family.”
On this occasion, Ayushmann is missing National Award winner and veteran actor, the late Surekha Sikri.
Remembering her, he says, I am lucky that I got a chance to work in this film with a wonderful artist like Late Surekha Sikriji. As a human being, she was very humble and had seriousness in her thoughts.
I also learned many important life lessons while working with him on the sets. I miss her a lot and I am sure the industry also misses her a lot.”
