Films should raise adult issues with innocence: Ayushmnn

Monday, August 28, 2017

After charming the audience as a sperm donor in his debut 'Vicky Donor', Ayushmann Khurrana's next film is on the subject of erectile dysfunction, and the actor says adult issues should be dealt with innocence to avoid vulgarity.

RS Prasanna's 'Shubh Mangal Saavdhan' is a love story of a young couple, Ayushmann and Bhumi Pednekar, whose parents come to know about the protagonist's erectile dysfunction.

Ayushmann said, "I had asked Shoojit Sircar (director of 'Vicky Donor'), 'Why did you chose me for the role of a sperm donor'? he said, he wanted somebody who has a clean image and looks innocent. If that innocence is taken out of the subject then it may become cheap," he said.

The actor says 'Shubh Mangal Saavdhan' also required an innocent and a lovable person to play the character. "Bhumi and I had to bring that innocence in our chemistry to deal with the subject. With this subject, innocence will work otherwise it won't work," he added.

On his experience of re-teaming with his 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha' co-star Bhumi, Ayushmann said, "It's great to be working with someone who is a friend, but you have to be good actors as well. I am glad people like our pairing onscreen," he said.

The actor said he was not surprised when the makers approached him to play 'Mudit' in the film. "It was very ironical when I got to know the subject, I felt life has come a full circle from a sperm donor to erectile dysfunction. This kind of film is required in today's day and age. People are patriarchal, they don't talk about problems and it's sad," he added.

Ayushmann said the movie wants to spread the message that, "We can't brush this problem under the carpet, we have to be open up and talk about it," he added.

Ayushmann's last release 'Bareilly Ki Barfi' has been getting him rave reviews both from the critics and audience, and he said he was hopeful that people would like it.

Do not take short cuts as this could lead to further delays and even a personal setback. Your beloved may be right that you have not been attentive of late. You seem indecisive about what you really want out of a relationship.
