Actor-Ayushmann-Khurrana

From playing a sperm donor to a man facing erectile dysfunction and a gay person on screen, actor Ayushmann Khurrana, who has redefined cinematic experience, says he stands up for films that are different.

“For me, the yardstick of success has never just been about how much money a project makes. I would love to leave a body of work that I’m proud of because I stand for cinema that’s different, that tries to makes you think. I want audiences to always think that I took the risk while trying to give them different cinema,” Ayushmann said.

The actor, who is currently gearing up for the release of his next “Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan”, feels that the audiences are tired of the routine and as an entertainer, he is only trying his best to give them films that they have not seen before.

“For me too, it’s a learning process and I’m constantly evolving as an actor with every film,” he said.

Ayushmann feels happy that he is an actor in today’s progressive day and age.

“As an artist, I’m fortunate and privileged to be living and working in such times. I’m proud of my country and industry for the progressiveness that it has shown in the recent past and I’m grateful that I’m part of such a vision like ‘Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’ that tells us about important life and societal lessons,” he said.

 For the second consecutive day, the Income Tax Department continued its ‘survey’ operations at the home of Bollywood actor Sonu Sood, official sources said here on Thursday.

A team of IT sleuths swooped on the 48-year-old Sood’s Juhu home to carry out search operations to detect certain alleged financial irregularities.

The IT department is examining bank statements, books of accounts, documents and details of financial or other business transactions during the ‘survey’, for suspected tax evasion, though no details are being shared officially.

In Wednesday’s operations, the IT had searched around half-a-dozen premises linked to the actor, including offices and other properties in Mumbai and certain locations in Lucknow.
