Actor happy with his ‘cleanest movie’
ACTOR Ayushmann Khurrana says his forthcoming film Badhaai Ho is his “cleanest film” so far as he had previously worked on movies with some of society’s taboo subjects.
Ayushmann interacted with the media as the makers of Badhaai Ho hosted a baby shower for 50 expecting mothers, along with his co-stars Sanya Malhotra, Gajraj Rao, Neena Gupta, producer Priti Shahani and director Amit Ravindernath Sharma, earlier this week.
Badhaai Ho revolves around an old couple becoming parents again. The comedy-drama features Ayushmann as the son of an elderly couple who find out that they are due to become parents for the third time.
“People have now started calling me Men’s Grihshobha (women’s magazine) because I have been a part of films which depicted men’s issues. But this (Badhaai Ho) is the cleanest film of mine because it is neither based on sperm donation (Vicky Donor) nor erectile dysfunction (Shubh Mangal Saavdhan).
“You don’t have to tell your child what’s happening in the film while watching... It’s a completely fun and quirky family entertainer,” said the actor.
With Ayushmann playing a man whose parents are expecting a baby in their old age, when asked how he reads the situation, Ayushmann said: “If this would have happened to me in my real life, I would have also felt embarrassed but it’s the parent’s decision.
“Our parents should make their own choices in life, but it gets a bit too much when your parents are expecting a baby when you are all grown up, but its still up to them.”
