Ayushmann and Aparshakti’s father was a very popular astrologer in North India. He had also written a few books in the field and was highly respected for his contributions. He also had a very sound music sense.
Sharing a video of his father playing a flute sometimes back, Aparshakti Khurana had said that he gets his music sense from him. He had written, “ Jamming all the stress away with papa who has been a HUGE Dev Anand fan. Yaad Kiya Dil Ne Kahan Ho Tum is even more special because it’s sung by the legends, Hemant Kumar Saab and Lata Mangeshkar Ji. Hope you like it. P.S – clearly we get our music from him (sic)”.
In an old interview, even Ayushmann Khurrana had opened up about his father. He had said, “I don’t believe in astrology, but my father has been my life coach and mentor. He always used to tell me ‘beta public ki nabz pakdo’ (Catch people’s pulse) and I just did that.” Both Ayushmann and Aparshakti were very close to their father. The two often spoke about how he influenced their lives and the strong bond they all shared.
