Ayushmann Khurrana is the poster boy of content cinema who has this uncanny instinct to pick out the best films being made in Bollywood. His latest release Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan is also a success story and he now has a unique feat of delivering eight back to back successes at the box office! Ayushmann was in Chandigarh to perform with his band and he was in for a pleasant surprise from his parents and close relatives who hosted a surprise dinner to celebrate the success of Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan.
“It was a lovely surprise! My family and close relatives have supported me right from when I decided to do Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan and today, when the film is a success story, they decided to host a dinner for me. I was touched,” the star reveals.
Ayushmann adds, “It was a complete surprise for me and they had planned everything to a T and not even dropped a single hint. I went home after my performance and I saw everyone at our house and they shouted congratulations. It was a really special moment for me just being with them and spending time.”
Ayushmann says his family’s unconditional support towards his edgy and quirky film choices is hugely motivating. “I feel happy that my parents and close relatives are proud of me and life decisions. It motivates me to move forward and push the envelope as an artist more. Their opinions matter the most to me and I’m delighted that they have loved my work in SMZS,” he says.
Ayushmann is delighted that he has delivered a big win with one of the taboo-est of taboo topics in India – gay romance. It was definitely one of his trickiest films at the box office and Ayushmann is thrilled that audiences and critics have loved Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. “For me, I’m simply thrilled that the film has captured the imagination of the nation and brought an issue like this out of the closet for all families to discuss,” he says.
