bollywood actor ayushmann khurrana is on cloud nine after his recent flick shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan has received positive reviews from fans and critics, including a thumbs up from US President Donald Trump. Khurrana, who made his debut with 2012 film vicky donor, spoke at the Hindustan Shikhar Samagam 2020 that things weren’t served to him on a silver platter. He discussed nepotism in bollywood, and even shared his experience of receiving money for singing on-board the Paschim Express.
On nepotism, Ayushmann was reported by Hindustan Times stating, “Star kids who are successful, are genuinely talented. They get their first break but then they have to live up to a benchmark. If I give my 50%, people say I have done it by myself. If star kids have a potential of 80% and even if they give their 100%, people aren’t satisfied.”
He also revealed that while going on tours for theatre shows, he used to sing on-board the Paschim Express, where he would receive money from commuters, which he’d save for his goa trip. “I am a trained singer because I used to sing in a train”, he added with a dash of humour.
