Roadies to Bollywood stardom: Unravelling the journey of Ayushmann Khurrana
The insider and outsider debate has been going on in Bollywood for a long time. While the insiders may have it easy, the outsider’s break-in after going through a lot of grinds. The experience that they carry from the outside world helps the outsiders to portray their characters beautifully. Ayushmann Khurrana is an outsider, who entered the world of movies after having worked in different spheres of the Entertainment industry.
Today, we will take a look at the journey of this amazing actor who has carved a place for himself with his choice of films.
Ayushmann started his journey with MTV Roadies season 2, where he not only got noticed for his survival skills but, also for his natural screen presence. He went on to win the show and became an instant hit among the youth. Thereafter, he moved into Radio where he hosted the show, ‘Maan Na Maan, Main Tera Ayushmann’. He struck a chord with the masses due to his unique style and desi way of mouthing his lines. He followed up his radio success with a VJ stint on MTV, along with lead roles in those absolutely crazy Fully Faltoo Films. That’s when we saw glimpses of his acting prowess and the ease with which he shifted between characters. He played the always-broke Fakir Khan in Chak De! India parody Cheque De India, and then he seamlessly got into the heavy boots of Akbar in Jadoo Ekbaar, where instead of war, we saw him challenge his opponent to a dance-off.
If you thought these movies were unpredictable, then his movie career is nothing different. Like his Bollywood debut vicky donor which broke the mould with its unique concept. Before Ayushmann, many actors had rejected the role solely because the film ventured into uncomfortable territory with its risqué content. Ayushmann went on to do several offbeat movies like Hawaizaada, Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Nautanki Saala!, Shubh Mangal Savdhan and Bareilly Ki Barfi. All of these films have one thing in common – they proved that content is king.
2018 turned out to be Ayushmann’s year. This was the year when he delivered gems like Badhaai Ho and Andhadhun that set the cash registers ringing. And just when you thought he could only pull off quirky characters, he opted for something different in the form of Article 15, a gritty movie that dealt with a severe topic of casteism and sexual assault where he played a no-nonsense cop.
Not just work, Ayushmann is also a doting husband to his wife and childhood sweetheart, Tahira. He admits that Tahira is his biggest critic. He stood by her like a rock when she was diagnosed with Stage 0 breast cancer. With their positive approach and successful treatment, the couple came out strong on the other side of Tahira’s illness and are today living a healthy and happy life. Reality shows, VJing, acting, singing, parenting or being a good husband, Ayushmann has given each his best. And his hunger for good work proves that he’s here to stay.
