Whenever the name ‘Ayushmann Khurrana’ is said, one is already prepared to watch something novel & exciting on the big screen. He has played a sperm donor, a man suffering from erectile dysfunction, a cop and in coming few hours you will see him as a sex call center girl all on the big screen. His choice of characters has become an object of envy for many of his competitors. Very recently he received a National Award in sharing with Vicky Kaushal.
But you know that this lot of success & achievements was once upon a time called a ‘flop’ actor and much more.
In an interview with Filmibeat, he was asked about those days when he was termed a flop actor. To which he replied, people never told it on my face. I am a person who is quite active on social media. There was once an incident when after ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’, somebody tweeted that I was a flop actor. I was about to tweet back to that person that it is a legit hit film. But then I realized that nobody would have done that had I been a hit actor. So, I took a vow to ensure that all of my films are successful ones. From there on, I made a decision to always put my script ahead of my character. My only aspiration was to give successful films and if there is any room for my character, then only I would go for it.
Talking about Ayushmann’s personal life, his wife: Tahira Kashyap is a renowned author, very recently had a successful battle with cancer. She admitted in open, that she is not comfortable with Ayushmann doing kissing scenes on the big screen, especially after Vicky Donor. There was a time when he was done with their marriage. But with time things worked out and the couple evolved as companions. It was like a midlife crisis and the couple dealt with it together and came out as winners.
