Bollywood actor, Ayushmann Khurrana dreamt of becoming an actor at the mere age of four. However, the list of his supporters was less than his critics and it also included his wife, Tahira Kashyap. But, right under the nose of nepotism, the actor proved everyone wrong and climbed the ladder to success.

Ayushmann's Bollywood journey started from a Chandigarh boy to being a Radio Jockey to national sensation, and he has left a huge mark on all of us. And while we all love his acting, it is the type of films that makes us love him more. And not to forget his love for words that often comes out as shayari on his Instagram feed late at night.
Recently, in an interview with the IANS, Ayushmann revealed how his son, Virajveer doesn't understand his genre of films, and stated, "When it comes to my son, since he is just a seven years old boy, for him, it is all about fantastical heroes and that is why he likes Varun Dhawan and Tiger Shroff."

He further went on to explain, "He does not understand my story space. But maybe one day, he will be proud of me, my choice of films... When he grows up, not now. I think if the story is progressive and compelling, I go for it, and that way, I would have made these choices even if I was single." Ayushmann also revealed how he wants to leave a legacy behind, "As an actor, it is really momentary for me when I am telling a story. Of course, I want to leave a legacy that resonates with the society but as an actor, I am ready to do any character that a story requires."
Earlier, in an interview with Rajeev Masand, Ayushmann had shared how he doesn't allow his kids to watch his films. He had stated, "My kids are not allowed to watch my films. They will see every other film - Gully Boy, Varun Dhawan's films, everything. I am conscious in a way. Every film has a kissing scene so it's not right for them to see their father kissing some other woman.”
He had also talked about how his kids are handling his stardom, and had shared, “It used to be strange, but now they are fine with it. They have accepted it. The idea is to keep them away from the arclights. They should live a normal life."
In another interview, the actor had given the same reason of not allowing his kids to watch his films. He had said, "I don’t believe in hypocrisy. Why can’t we discuss problems openly? Yes, I do films that are bold and hard-hitting, yet family oriented ones. All my films are made sensibly and honestly, though. But I take a conscious decision that my kids do not watch movies, where I’m not seen kissing their mother. They’re very small now and I want them to believe in the institution of marriage. Watching me kiss another woman may not be taken positively at this age."
Ayushmann had shared of instilling good value in his kids, and stated, "Being a young father, I’m glad the generation gap is less. Being a progressive father, I will always enlighten my son to be respectful towards girls, and be chivalrous towards them. As far as daughters go, education can empower her. She shouldn’t cringe to share not-so-pleasant experiences, if she faces one." (Don't Miss: Kamya Panjabi Shares Manish Naggdev Was Getting Anxiety Attacks After His Breakup With Srishty Rode)
Well, we love Ayushmann and the way he is acing his role as a father!
While we can make hundreds of plans for Mother’s Day, we can hardly muster a plan for our fathers. It is because of the fact that they have always been a man of few words, who fear to express their love when we needed it the most. But thanks to theseRead More
