Ayushmann Khurrana has had his fair share of struggles for reaching where he is today. He is not just another actor, but is touted as multi-talented artiste which makes him a performer. While superstars were struggling give out box office hits last year, Ayushmann made a mark by giving out back-to-back hits ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ and ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’.
Even this year, he has an interesting line up of films this year which include ‘Badhaai Ho’ and ‘Shoot The Piano Player’. During an interview with a leading magazine, when asked if fame affects his personal life, Ayushmann said, “After the first film, our personal life was affected. I had no time for my family. You begin to feel big, your ego swells. Then I got back on track. It’s great to see both sides in these five years. The highs and the lows. Personally and professionally, it has made me balanced. It gives you a better perspective of life. Honestly, had all my films been successful, my wife would have left me. I would have been a different person. She has been with me through thick and thin. That is why we are together. Of course, you do get attracted to people. But your core needs to be right. The belief that you are with this person for a lifetime and you have to be with the family. That is the only thing, which will last forever.”
When asked how does he handle the immense female fan following, Ayushmann said, “Earlier Tahira used to get jittery with all the female attention. It was different for her to see her college friend kissing women on screen. Now it’s cool. She has grown from being my girlfriend in Chandigarh to someone, who has shot a short film and will be directing a feature film soon. She is an artiste too. So, she understands the space an artiste needs and demands. Every actor loves this kind of attention. She knows that I love it and she is happy for me. She also knows that my love for her is way bigger than all this.”
