Ayushmann Khurrana, renowned for his unconventional and groundbreaking roles, stands as one of the most celebrated actors in the industry. He has carved a niche for himself as a harbinger of societal change through his remarkable performances. Recently, his influence was acknowledged as he received the prestigious TIME 100 Impact Award, solidifying his status as the 'most influential man.'
It has been interesting to note how Bollywood star Ayushmann Khurrana has stopped using the words ‘ladies and gentlemen’ at recent gatherings, including the TIME 100 Impact Awards in Singapore, where he was honoured as one of the most influential people in the world.
When questioned, Ayushmann reveals the reason candidly,
“Yes, I think it is necessary to make every space inclusive for all genders. Gender has to be seen as a spectrum today and not just as male and female. It is true that I have stopped using the words ‘ladies and gentlemen’ whenever I address people now. Instead, I’m happy using ‘everyone’.”
“I think it is high time that we make every setting gender agnostic. We need to embrace the fact that gender is also non-binary. We are all equals and I hope we can all contribute actively towards making our society more compassionate and accepting for all genders.”
In the realm of cinema, Ayushmann Khurrana is currently reveling in the resounding success of his latest film, 'Dream Girl 2.' The movie has soared past the coveted 100 crore milestone, earning acclaim from both audiences and critics. Alongside Ayushmann, the film featured a stellar ensemble cast including Ananya Panday, Paresh Rawal, Vijay Raaz, Rajpal Yadav, Anu Kapoor, Seema Pahwa, and more, all contributing to its success.
