Is Ayushmann Khurrana becoming a class act by being versatile and bold in his film choices?

Talent is a funny thing, isn’t it? Some people are born talented and achieve everything there is to achieve, despite not trying too hard. And some people are not as gifted and have to graft and slog to their last ounces to achieve some results. The Hindi film industry is currently going through an interesting and delicate phase as films are depending on star power and appeal as well as the content. And our country is also trying to find that sweet spot and balance between being democratic and following democracy.

Talking about change and revolution in Bollywood, Ayushmann Khurrana’s name comes to mind and how he has evolved as an actor. From ‘Roadies’ to television to now a full-blown commercially successful star, Ayushmann has surely come a long way. The actor will be next seen in Anubhav Sinha’s ‘Article 15’. The film talks about an important clause in our constitution and whether we are actually functioning as a constitutional democracy. And it pretty much sums up Ayushmann’s journey in Bollywood.

Ayushmann Khurrana has always taken the bull by the horns and doesn’t shy away from putting himself under pressure.

Ayushmann Khurrana has just completed seven years in the industry, but he seems like he has an experience of close to 40-50 years. The number of roles he has chosen, his articulation skills, backing unconventional and taboo projects and not doing the same old stereotypical roles again and again – all of this make him a true legend. It also helps that he doesn’t have any godfather in the industry, who clouds your thought process and judgement more often than not.

‘Article 15’ is about following our constitution and behaving like a democracy. Ayushmann is playing the role of a police officer, who is investigating the murder of lower caste girls and while doing his job, he is facing pressure and challenges. Not many actors would have taken this role and would not want to be in the bad books of our ruling dispensation. But, Ayushmann has never believed in being conventional and playing it safe just to prolong your career.

We (people) are obsessed with which film has entered Rs 100, 200, 300, 400 crore club and don’t give due respect to content. At the end of the day, money is not everything and very few big-budget films have ever won Oscars or prestigious awards. When you see Ayushmann act on the screen, there is honesty, courage and he is doing it effortlessly and calmly.

Ayushmann Khurrana might not be the most commercially successful star of this generation, but he is definitely the most versatile and charismatic actor of this generation.
