Ayushmann Khurrana Shares People Told him Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan Was Unacceptable Cinema for THIS Reason
“Taboo topics need to be constantly addressed through our cinema because it can really help to alter the mindset of the people. It takes a lot of time and effort to normalize taboo subjects and bring about constructive changes in society. I’m glad that we tried to contribute towards making the conversation about same-sex relationships in India mainstream through Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. If it has had some impact on the minds of people, then we have done our job,” says Ayushmann.
He added, “The fact that the film became a (moderate) success, told me that people want to engage and have a conversation on such important subjects. The fact that Indian families came out and watched this film was the biggest success story for me because our families can contribute so much to foster a spirit of inclusivity when it comes to same-sex relationships.”
The star added, “It has always been my endeavour to bring such discussions out in the open and do my bit towards creating a forward-thinking society. I have always wanted to reach out and have a conversation with people about the subjects that I have addressed through my movies. Rest assured, I will continue doing that because it satiates me as an artist and motivates me to discover more subjects like these.”
