Ayushmann Khurrana has become one of the leading actors in the Bollywood industry. His acting journey begun with Vicky Donor that saw him in a remarkably edgy, taboo subject of sperm donation. 

He then went on to star in films like Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, Badhaai Ho, and Bala which addressed many taboo subjects but, also entertained the audience. 

On Wednesday, as one of his films Shubh Mangal Saavdhan turned four, Ayushmann penned a heartfelt note. He revealed how Vicky Donor and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan reinstated his belief that the Indian audience wants to talk about taboo topics.

Ayushmann wrote on Instagram, “I debuted in Bollywood with a bold taboo subject of sperm donation in Vicky Donor, thanks to Shoojit Da, and that showed me how the audience was changing and embracing subjects that were disruptive. With Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, I returned to this territory with Aanand L. Rai and R.S. Prasanna. Their genius was insensitively showing a subject like erectile dysfunction and making it entertaining and supremely palatable for audiences to engage.”

The star, who delivered eight hits in a row on the silver screen, further added, “After Vicky Donor, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan reinstated my belief that the people of India want to discuss taboo topics out in the open and in their own way address them for the good of society. The success of the film told me to stay on course and try and bring more such themes out of the closet and into mainstream cinema. I felt that having a discussion on these things was necessary.”

He credits Shubh Mangal Saavdhan for changing his career. “Shubh Mangal Saavdhan gave me the courage to pick my subsequent films and put all my faith behind it. I’m fortunate that in this process I found directors whose creative vision was so original that it blew me away. I thank everyone associated with this film for empowering me to become an artist who relishes sparking conversations in India. I want to do just that through my next few films like Anek, Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, and Doctor G,” he says.
