Bollywood's unconventional hero- Ayushmann Khurrana has set a unique record with back-to-back hits - Bareilly Ki Barfi and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan in 2017 and AndhaDhun and Badhaai Ho in 2018 - and the actor is overwhelmed that his choices are resonating with the audience.


A harbinger of social change, his commercially successful entertainers without being preachy have got people talking about sperm donation, erectile dysfunction, over-weight brides and made organ trafficking more real than newspapers headlines for the audience!


So here are 6 times when Ayushmann Khurrana broke the underlying stereotype's that prevail in the Indian Cinema -


Badhaai Ho - Ayushmann Khurrana's latest movie Badhaii Ho touched upon the taboo subject of parental pregnancy that exits in our society. The Amit Sharma directorial was greatly appreciated by the audience and has already garnered 70 crores at the box-office. It was definitely an eye-opener for the younger generation as the movie conveyed a beautiful message that even our parents can have an intimate relationship beyond a certain age.


Andhadhun - Ayushmann's second successful movie of 2018, Sriram Raghavan's Andhadhun saw him playing a blind man witnessing a murder. After doing a spate of slice-of-films the actor chose a perfect movie to shift gears. In this dark comedy mixed with a slice of quirk, Andhadhun turned out to be a mold-breaker both for Ayushmann and the audience.


Shubh Mangal Saavdhan - The movie diagonally opposite Khurrana's Vicky Donor triggered a more serious discussion on erectile dysfunction, which is common but not openly spoken about because the male ego is involved. The R.S Prasanna directorial needed someone who is really secure as a man and a star to do a film like this which questions the quintessential alpha male status of a commercial leading man and Ayushmann was tailor-made for this role.


Bareilly Ki Barfi - The Ashwini Iyer Tiwari film was a simple love triangle and though it did not have any social stigma attached to it, the movie was progressive in its portrayal of the father-daughter relationship with the two sharing a cigarette on the terrace and also deals with identity theft with humor.


Dum Laga Ke Haisha - This Ayushmann Khurranna starrer questioned a lot of things, from the institution of arranged marriage to weight issues. His character of Prem who harbors an inferiority complex who aspires to marry his dream girl but ends but finding love in Sandhya, a girl who is overweight but an intelligent school teacher.


Vicky Donor - Ayushamann's breakthrough movie, director Shoojit Sircar's Vicky Donor was a clean and well-written film. A small film that went on to earn big, it normalized subjects like sperm donation, IVF and surrogacy, turning them into drawing room discussions.
