“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less travelled by…” These lines are apt for Ayushmann Khurana – the actor-cum-singer. When the well-settled stars of Bollywood are afraid to experiment with their roles, Ayushmann never hesitates to walk the unbeaten paths. From sperm donation to gay love, from the innovation of airplanes in India to cross-gender acting – Khurrana never shies away from handling offbeat subjects. What’s more interesting is the fact that in spite of the offbeat topics, Ayushmann Khurrana’s movies are always both critically and commercially successful.
