Early Life and Education:
Khurrana was born on 14 September 1984 in Chandigarh to Poonam and P. Khurrana, as Nishant Khurrana, later his parents changed his name to Ayushmann Khurrana when he was 3 years old. He was a part of the Guru Nanak Khalsa College.
He studied at St. Johns High School and DAV College in Chandigarh. Also, he majored in English literature and has a master’s degree in Mass Communication from the School of Communication Studies Punjab University. Moreover, he did a serious theatre for five years.
He conceived and acted in street plays and won prizes in national college festivals such as Mood Indigo (IIT Bombay), OASIS (Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani) and St. Bede’s Shimla. In fact, he also won a Best Actor Award for playing Ashwattama in Dharamvir Bharati’s Andha Yug and was invited to the 2017 Actor’s Roundtable hosted by Rajeev Masand.
Two years later, after starring in the poorly received Meri Pyaari Bindu, Khurrana’s career progressed with two of his other films releases of 2017, Bareilly ki Barfi and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, both of which were commercially successful. In the former, adapted from Nicolas Barreau’s French novel The Ingredients of Love, he played alongside Rajkumar Rao and Kriti Sanon as a writer involved in a love triangle.
In the remake of the Tamil film Kalyana Samayal Saadham (2013), Khurrana hoped that the film’s humorous take on mental and sexual problems faced by men would bring wider attention to the topic. Rajeev Masand took note of how well the film handled sexuality without being crude and commended him for “investing the fellow with genuine likeability and an understand charm”. Khurrana received a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Actor for the latter film.
With a series of successful and hit films, he crossed his 2018 and 2019 career. The released films like Dream Girl, Bala, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, and Article 15, got successful in the box office.
Now, there is a wait for the upcoming film of Ayushmann Khurrana, Shubh Mangal Zyaada Saavdhan, where he will be playing the role of a gay person. It is based on homosexuality.
