Bollywood starlet and singer Ayushmann Khurrana opens up about his role selections in order to break taboos in the film industry.
During an interview, Ayushmann said: “I have been trying to normalize taboo conversations in India through my cinema.”
“You will notice that right since my debut film (Vicky Donor), with my choice of films, I have tried to do my bit to have a constructive conversation with society about the need for change.”
“I’ve always strongly felt that through cinema, we could ask society to widen its gaze towards important subjects that were not being addressed.”
“We were a shy country, we still are, and there is beauty to that, but what I’m most happy about is how the people of my country have appreciated my style of cinema,” he added more.
Earlier, he had broken silence about male child’s proper brought up.
“As a UNICEF celebrity advocate, my role is to further children’s rights, to support UNICEF in advocating for these rights using my voice and my influence,” he said during an interview.
“One of the major issues I am supporting is ending violence against children, to advocate that violence against children is unacceptable, and it is preventable,” he added.
The actor further reacted to the Hatharas and Balrampur case, claiming that there was a pressing need in society for men to be raised in a better way.
However, Ayushmann made his first Bollywood debut with Shoojit Sircar’s Vicky Donor.
Later, he went on to act in successful films such as Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Bareilly Ki Barfi, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, Andhadhun, Badhaai Ho, Article 15, Dream Girl and Bala.
Lastly, he worked in Amazon Prime’s comedy-drama Gulabo Sitabo alongside legendary Amitabh Bachchan.
