Ac­tor happy with his ‘clean­est movie’

Sunday Tribune - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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.”
