Ayushmann Khurrana: I choose taboo themes to highlight real

Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana says he chooses to make movies in taboo issues to bring a change in society.

Since Ayushmann made his Bollywood debut, he has always managed to overcome the limits.

Ayushmann has never avoided experimenting. He played a sperm donor in ' Donor Vicky '; a man who deals with erectile dysfunction in ' Shubh Mangal Saavdhan '; a prematurely bald man in ' Bullet '; now proudly play a gay man in 'Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan'.

He said: "Cinema is a powerful tool that can influence people and affect positive social changes. One of my primary reasons to do films on taboo topics is to try and impact a change in society start a conversation in families and make people think of the realities that are around them and impacts them regularly.

"It is this strong urge to try and highlight the real, the important that I decided my brand of cinema will stand for taboo breaking subjects."

Ayushmann says that his main audience base is the family audience across the country and that he wants to entertain them at all times, even while making a movie with a message and a suggestion.

The problems I deal with in my films affect families across the country in some way or form. That is the reason why they connect with my film genre.

I want to keep quietly removing these important social problems that somehow, as a society, we try to hide under the carpet. Through my films, I am trying to get these conversations out of the closet and I hope, in the process, making us think of being vocal and sensitive, he added.
