Ayushmann Khurrana 5 Times When He Shocked Us



Ayushmann Khurrana

Ayushmann Khurrana  is a trendsetter of an actor, not by choice . But because , well that’s how he is. The conventional doesn’t suit his temperament. Here are  his 5 career decisions which shocked us.

1.     He chose to  begin  his movie career with Vicky Donor,  about a guy who sells his semen  in  small glass bottles to earn a living. “It could have finished me  off ,” recalls Ayushmann. The audience  loved  his non-referential  act and called  him the  new Amol Palekar   which was wildly  incorrect. Palekar played the middleclass whitecollar worker. But he hardly ever  played  an unconventional role.

2.     Ayushmann tried  more conventional roles in his next two  films  Nautanki Saala and Bewakoofiyan. Audiences felt exactly  that:  the actor was  doing   nautanki  and  his attempts at playing the  conventional hero were just bewakofee.

3.     He quickly gravitated  to the  Mr Everyman  role in Dum Laga Ke Haisha where he had to shoulder  all the  weight, including that  of  the  leading  lady Bhumi Pednekar who at that time weighed  more than Ayushmann. At the end  of  the  film he had to run with Bhumi  on his shoulders  . He  never stopped running  thereafter,sometimes without a  heroine(Article 15).

4.     Not  all  of Ayushmann’s    acclaimed films  are  as  good as they are  were initially made  out be. Shubh Mangal Zyada Savdhaan and  Dream  Girl were  not as calibre-conscious as  Bala and Section 15. It is  due to his  reputation  that  they were all accorded the same ‘If-it’s-Ayushmann-it’s-got-to-be-good’  status.

5.     After his latest  Gulabo Sitabo   it’s time for Ayushmann to rejuvenate his  exemplary career.  If the  film had opened in  movie theatres  it would have  flopped miserably.Calling a crashing  bore by  any other name would be doing  it injustice.
