After inflaming box-office with back-to-back hits in 2019, Ayushmann Khurrana is set to tickle the funny bone of audiences with his upcoming film, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. Helmed by Hitesh Kewalya, the upcoming movie revolves around a gay couple fighting for acceptance in a small town. Khurrana and Jitendra Kumar play the lead roles in the comic-caper.

This is not the first time when Ayushmann Khurrana is playing a diverse character. His filmography is filled with such characters. Right from the beginning of his career, the actor has made sure to pick up characters that not many Bollywood actors would dare essay. But how does he manage to be so versatile with every role that he portrays on screen?

“I try to make that connect with common folk. Wherever I shoot, I try to become one of them. I engage in conversations with the driver, the tea seller. They talk about their problems. I have to know these people, I have to be one with them, that’s my way of preparing,” says Khurrana.

Talking about how he prepared for his character in Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, the National Film Award-winning actor said, “I was gung-ho about doing this film, and so far preparations are concerned I have lots of friends in LGBTQ community.”
