Amar Singh Rathore

Ayushmannn Khurrana told us exclusively what changed inside him and how Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan taught him to be more empathetic!

Ayushmann Khurrana is on a roll at the box office. After delivering seven back to back hits with content films, the star is back with Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, a quirky film that has a hilarious take on the stereotypes surrounding same-sex relationships in India. Ayushmann, who has given Indian cinema a genre of its own through his unique, quirky, taboo-topic oriented films. When a leading mainstream Bollywood actor like Ayushmann does a film like SMZS, the expectations as well the exposure to the film are sky-high. He surely has got no limits when it comes to bringing topics away from the league to the silver screen with such grit and determination. Post Dream Girl, we feel like Ayushmann is clearly headed in a direction beyond all inhibitions.

In an exclusive conversation to us, Ayushmann revealed how the empathy-meter inside him went sky high while he was shooting for SMZS and for such an issue. When asked about the one thing which the actor learnt while shooting for SMZS, he said,

”I think with every film you learn something and it is not that you are always woke and aware. You discover a lot of things. Iss film me acceptance aur empathy zyaada badhi thi for the LGBT community and more than anything else, one hot to know how a typical Indian family gets to react after getting to know that their son has an orientation which is not heterosexual. I think the empathy factor was something which I realized while the shoot.”

Well, he also added the film is for the homophobes and not for the people who already support the LGBT community!
