Ayushmann Khurrana Says He Wants His Children to Have a Normal Upbringing
Ayushmann Khurrana recently announced he would be taking a few months break from films to spend more time with his family.
Ayushmann Khurrana, who is currently riding high on the success of his last six films, spoke about his personal life, in an interview with the Hindustan Times. Speaking about his two children, Virajveer and Varushka, he said he likes to protect them from the paparazzi. He said, “They should have a normal upbringing that we had. That’s good for their growth. They should not be thinking in their head that they are stars already. They should learn everything the hard way and that can only be possible when Tahira (Kashyap Khurrana) and I bring them up in a certain away and keep them away from the arch lights.”
The actor, who likes to highlight positive social messages on screen, also shared details of the social work he has been doing in his personal life. Speaking about his support for an NGO in Delhi, called Gulmeher, which works for the welfare of human scavengers, he said, “They closely work with human scavengers and rag pickers of Ghazipur. The idea is to give them a better life, celebrating important events with them with goodies... So I’ve been doing such things even before I started talking about such stories in films.”
The Andhadhun actor, whose most recent film Dream Girl has turned out to be a blockbuster at the box office, has several other interesting projects in the pipeline. He said he was “happy” because people were coming to him with different stories. “That they have me in mind whenever such narratives come up, makes me believe that I’m doing something right. But that does not mean I won’t do different kind of films. I’m open to anything that would push me to do better than what I’ve done before,” he added. Ayushmann revealed his family was “happy and proud” of his success, and encouraged him to “stay calm and sail on.”
