Ayushmann Khurrana Only Indian Actor On Time's 100 Most Influential List, Deepika Applauds
Category: Bollywood News

Time Magazine has named Aayushmann Khurrana among the 100 most powerful people in the world. The actor went to Instagram to share how he was "honoured" to be a part of the party. He shares this honour with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was named on the list as well. "On Instagram, he posted," TIME's list of the world's 100 Most Influential People is out, I'm proud to be part of this group: time.com/time100 @TIME # TIME100". Within a few minutes, the post was showered with thousands of "likes" and congratulations started pouring in for Ayushmann.

Ayushmann says, “I’m truly humbled with the recognition that TIME has bestowed on me. As an artiste, I have only looked to contribute towards bringing a positive change in society through cinema and this moment is a huge validation of my belief system and my journey. I have always believed that cinema has the power to bring about change by triggering the right conversations among people and society. Hopefully, through my content choices, I have been able to contribute towards my country and countrymen.”

Deepika Padukone also appreciated the actor’s film choices in the magazine, “I remember Ayushmann Khurrana vividly from his debut film, Vicky Donor. He had, of course, been a part of the entertainment industry in various other ways for several years before that, but the reason you and I talk about him today is because of the impact he has been able to create through memorable films and iconic characters. Where male protagonist roles often fall into the trap of stereotypical masculinity, Ayushmann has successfully and convincingly transformed into characters who challenge those very stereotypes.”

She said that "patience, perseverance and fearlessness" are also the traits of those who dare to dream, just like Ayushmann, in addition to "talent and hard work". His Badhaai Ho co-star, Neena Gupta, was among those who congratulated Ayushmann. She has published, “Oh amazing!” Rapper Badshah wrote, “More power.” Mrunal Thakur commented, “Wow, There you go.” South actor Aishwarya Lekshmi commented, “Woah!!! Thats huge! So happy for you!” Lifestyle coach Luke Coutinho also wrote, “Congrats bro so well deserved.” Manav Vij dropped several clap emojis in the comments section.

In Vicky Donor, Ayushmann made his debut as a sperm donor and went on to portray a blind man in Andhadhun, a man in Shubh Mangal Saavdhan suffering from erectile dysfunction, a gay man in Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan and a bald man in Bala. He is also known for playing Dum Laga Haisha, Bareilly Ki Barfi, Article 15 and Dream Girl.
