Ayushmann Khurrana is one of the finest actors in Bollywood now, who currently working on many projects, as he talks about the films he chooses to be part of. He starts his career with unconventional Vicky Donor and went on to pick such films that other actors didn’t want to touch. One such film was Subh Mangal Savdhan which was about erectile dysfunction. The film recently turned 4 and the actor is grateful.
Ayushmann says, “I debuted in Bollywood with a bold taboo subject of sperm donation in Vicky Donor, thanks to shoojit Da, and that showed me how the audience was changing and embracing subjects that were disruptive. With Shubh Mangal Savdhan, I returned to the territory with Anand L. Rai and R.S Prasanna. Their genius was insensitively showing a subject like erectile dysfunction and making it entertaining as well as the audience to engage.”
He also added, “After Vicky Donor, Shubh Mangal Savdhan reinstated my belief that the people of India want to discuss taboo topics out in the open and in their own way to address them for the good of society. The success of the film told me to stay on course and try to bring such topics to the people and to the cinema. I felt that having a discussion on these things was necessary.”
He also gave credits to “Shubh Mangal Savdhan” for changing his career. “Shubh Mangal Savdhan” gave me the course to pick my subsequent films and put all my faith into them. I am very grateful for this process I found directors whose creative idea was original that it blew me away. I thank everyone with this film and for having faith in me for empowering me to become an artist who relishes sparking conversations in India. I same want to do with my upcoming films like Anek, Chandigarh Kare, Aashiqui, and Doctor G.”
