Ayushmann Khuranna Confessed That His Career Is Based On Risk Taking
Ayushmann Khuranna said that all the films he has done in the past were risky choices and it was important for him to reach new heights
Bollywood star Ayushmann Khurrana has been soaring high on the success of his latest film, Dream Girl, which has been faring well at the box office. Even his last few films such as Bareilly Ki Barfi, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, Andhadhun, Badhaai Ho and Article 15, were loved by audiences worldwide. He also has number of films lined up for the future, such as Bala, Gulabo Sitabo and Shubh Mangal Zyaada Saavdhan, which makes it seems like things are going well for the actor. But Dream Girl did receive some flak from quite a few viewers on being sexist and trivializing stalking.
In an interview with DNA India, Ayushmann spoke about how some viewers think that Dream Girl was sexist and trivialised stalking. He said, "That’s bound to happen. This is the first time I have done an out-and-out masala film and any film of that genre will face issues and will be criticised. This is the complete opposite of Article 15. It was a conscious choice to do a total mass entertainer. I have based my entire career on taking risks. Taking risks is important to reach the next level and I am glad I have carved out a space for myself."
Despite being so successful with his choice of films, this is not the first time the actor or his film was called out. Ayushmann’s next outing, Bala, directed by Amar Kaushik earlier also landed itself in hot waters after accusations of plagiarism rose against it. A case was filed by Praveen Morchhale against the writer of Bala, Niren Bhatt and Maddock Films, claiming that Bala has been copied from his script, Mr Yogi. But Maddock Films denied all allegations and said that they have never met Morchhale and never knew about his story. On the other hand, Bala starring revolves around the story of a man who suffers from premature balding and the society’s obsession with fair skin. The film is all set to hit screens across the world on November 22, 2019.
