Here is why Ayushmann Khurrana count ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ as a RISK
Ayushmann Khurrana is seen to be romancing a trans-woman in ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’. The actor said in his recent interview that he never chooses his film’s script thinking of how will the film do it on the box office, rather chooses it with a purpose that his movies might just break the unconventional taboo.
Ayushmann says, “Ever since my debut in ‘Vicky Donor’, I have chosen films that have been deemed unconventional or taboo-breaking from a societal point of view. I feel that such films are necessary for India to make. I have felt the need to start a discourse about important issues that need to be addressed. ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ is one such film in my filmography and I’m tremendously proud of it.” The young actor has played many challenging roles in his previous films, like a man with erectile dysfunction in ‘Shubh Mangal Savdhaan’, he portrayed the role of a bald man in ‘Bala’, in his debut film ‘Vicky Donor’ he portrayed the role of a sperm donor and there are many challenging roles that the young actor has played and aced it.
He also shares his working experience with the director of the film ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’, Abhishek Kapoor. He says, “I’m lucky to have found a creative partner in Abhishek Kapoor, who too believed that there was a need to bring in focus issues affecting the transgender community in India. This was our attempt to make this conversation relevant and mainstream and I hope that the film will do just that in the days to come.”
Ayushmann later reveals that he never hesitates while choosing his scripts and believes in taking risks and he never thinks of the box office while choosing his script, rather he just focuses on the storyline. The young actor says that “I have never chosen to do a film keeping my box-office gains in mind. I have not been built like that and I don’t think people expect anything safe from me. So, ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ is one of my riskiest films to date and no matter what the outcome of the film is, I will continue to be a risk-taker because I’m hardwired like that as a human being.”
Ayushmann adds that, if his films trigger a nationwide debate, then he would any day choose the debate over how much will the film do at the Box office. He says, “If I can start a conversation on bettering society, I will do that in a heartbeat without thinking about the repercussions. I have chosen films by listening to my heart and I will keep doing just that. I am an entertainer and I will try to engage people with my kind of cinema. I don’t see myself changing course for anything.”
