Ayushmann Khurrana has been one of the most charming actors of the Bollywood industry. He is a successful actor and also a very successful playback singer who has immensely contributed his art to the Bollywood industry. He has done many amazing super hit films and his acting skills have been hugely praised by the Bollywood fans. His on-screen presence has always been commendable and he is surely a treat to watch on the silver screen. He made his debut with the film ‘Vicky Donor’ and now he has very well established himself in the film industry.
The Bollywood industry has many stories to tell and it is not wrong if we say that almost every new actor has faced the ordeal of the casting couch. Both men and women have faced many uncomfortable situations because of the lust of filmmakers and casting directors. Casting couch is definitely one of the saddest truths of the Bollywood industry and many new Bollywood actors have to go through this unpleasant situation. In return, the filmmakers promise to boost their career and it becomes a deal between a filmmaker and an actor.
Ayushmann Khurrana was interviewed during Anaita Shroff Adjania’s chat show ‘Feet Up With The Stars’ where he was asked if he had to face any such situations in the starting of his career or not where he revealed many surprising facts about his initial stage in the film industry. He revealed a very horrifying story which seems to be really disgusting as well as shocking. Ayushmann Khurrana told that during an audition, a gay casting director was there and you won’t believe what he asked Ayushmann Khurrana to do. Ayushmann Khurrana told that he told him to enact a few scenes and while he was doing that the gay director suddenly asked him to unzip his pants.
Ayushmann Khurrana told that the gay director asked him to unzip his pants and then he asked him to show his private parts. Ayushmann Khurrana said that the behaviour of that casting director was ridiculous and demeaning. Ayushmann said that at first he laughed on what he was saying and asked him to give more roles to enact, on which the gay casting director gave him a very big lecture on how to behave in this film industry. Well, that’s really shocking!
In the chat show ‘Feet Up With The Stars’, Ayushmann Khurrana said,
“There was a gay casting director who said to me, ‘I want to see your c**k, can I just feel you’. I started laughing and said, ‘Kya baat kar raha hai yaar. Are you serious?’ I said, ‘No it’s not happening like that.”
The interview of Ayushmann Khurrana in this chat show surprised many of the Bollywood fans as no one could ever expect such a thing. We have earlier heard about many actresses who were involved in casting couch but the reality is that not only actresses but actors also get such offers and that’s pretty much clear from the interview of Ayushmann Khurrana.
Anaita Shroff then asked Ayushmann Khurrana on what was his reply to the casting director and what did he do next after this when he resisted the demands of that gay director. On this, the actor said that he had to listen to a very big lecture by him. He stated that he gave him a full lecture on how to behave and survive in the Bollywood film industry. Well, Ayushmann Khurrana did not reveal the name of that gay casting director.
The interview of Ayushmann Khurrana with Anaita Shroff was really interesting. Ayushmann also revealed about an incident which happened after the success of his debut film ‘Vicky Donor’. He revealed that when he was in a mall with his mom, a female fan started asking for his sperms right in front of his mom. He said,
“My mom is a very simple lady from Chandigarh, and while at the mall, a girl shouted out, ‘Vicky I need your sperm!’. My mom was completely scandalized and looking at me just said, ‘Kya Kiya beta tune’ “.
