Ayushmann Khurrana is one of the most successful actors of the current generation. From the past few years, all his films have been doing very well at the box office. We can surely call him the new superstar of Bollywood.

However, apart from his films doing well at the box office, Ayushmann has also been a part of movies that not many A-listers would have done.

So, today on his 36th birthday let’s look at the list of five films of the actor that broke social stigmas…

Vicky Donor

Ayushmann Khurrana made his Bollywood debut in 2012 with the film Vicky Donor. The movie spoke about sperm donation, a topic that was not explored in Bollywood earlier. It was a super hit at the box office and surely gave a fantastic start to Ayushmann’s career.

Dum Laga Ke Haisha

2015 release Dum Laga Ke Haisha was a sleeper hit at the box office. The film, which was set in the 90s, told the story of a fat-educated girl who gets married to a good-looking but an uneducated guy. The message that the film gave was that inner beauty is more important than the looks of a person.

Shubh Mangal Saavdhan

We wonder if any A-list actor would have agreed to do a movie revolving around erectile dysfunction. But well, Ayushmann starred Shubh Mangal Saavdhan in which he played a character who is suffering from erectile dysfunction. It revolved around a subject that people would feel shy to even discuss with their family. But a movie was made on it and it was also a hit at the box office.

Badhaai Ho

Imagine you are in your mid-20s and thinking of getting married and starting a family. But then you come to know that actually your mother is pregnant and you are soon going to have a sibling. Well, this was actually the concept of the 2018 release Badhaai Ho. The movie was about how family and society react when a middle-aged couple is all set to turn parents for the third time.

Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan

After the success of Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, the makers announced a sequel to it titled Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. While the first installment spoke about erectile dysfunction, the second installment was about how a family reacts after they come to know that their son is gay and has a partner. Well once again, Ayushmann proved that when it comes to content-driven entertaining films, he is surely the best choice for it.
