Ayushmann Khurrana was last seen in Article 15 and next, he will be seen in Ekta Kapoor’s Dream Girl.
Today, as the nation celebrates its Independence Day, we are sure it is a special Independence Day for Ayushmann Khurrana, having won the National award for Andhadhun, wherein he essayed the role of a visually impaired pianist. Now, as India celebrates its Independence Day today, Ayushmann is happy that his last release, Article 15, which was based on the caste system and talked about the uplifting the society, was accepted by the audience and Ayushmann is happy that the film delivered at the box office.
“The good BO collection is solid validation that our country has evolved a lot and the society is prepared for a change. We have become introspective and feel that a belief system, which has been there for years, has to change for the better. Independence Day is always special, but this makes it more special for me,” shares Ayushmann. Back in the day, only a handful films like Border, Lagaan, and others were made based on the patriotic genre but as we speak, such films are on the rise and 34-year-old Ayushmann is happy that there is a marked increase in films that arise patriotic fervor. “I remember, there was a time when two films on Bhagat Singh released on the same day. But, yes, a lot of movies are being made in this day and age, so, there is a rise in the patriotic genre, too. There’s Akshay (Kumar) sir who makes films on patriotism or something on those lines, as does Vicky (Kaushal). My movie Article 15 is one of a kind for me — this is my first film based on a social cause,” he shares.
While Uri talked about armed forces and their sacrifices, Article 15 talked about uplifting the society and therefore, Ayushmann feels that this Independence day, he wants people of the nation to not blindly love the country but to embrace the flaws of the country and change it. On the work front, Ayushmann will next be seen in Shoojit Sircar’s Gulabo Sitabo, and Ekta Kapoor’s Dream Girl.
