In his eight-year Bollywood journey, Ayushmann has played a sperm donor in his maiden film “Vicky Donor”, a man with erectile dysfunction in “Shubh Mangal Saavdhaan”, a strong-headed police officer in “Article 15”, a gay lover in “Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhaan”, highlighted body shaming in “Dum Laga Ke Haisha” and spotlighted premature balding in “Bala”.

“These so-called taboo topics were hardly touched upon by our industry because we generally, consciously, like to shy away from speaking publicly about these issues,” he said.

Ayushmann wants society and Bollywood to be more vocal about important issues that can help promote diversity and inclusivity in India.

“We aren’t very vocal about some important and real issues that we should actually be talking about and discussing more often. I have always felt that bringing such topics out in the open will help us grow as a country,” he said.

Ayushmann says he will continue with his journey to usher as much “positive change” around him as possible. “That’s my biggest motivation as an artist,” he summed up. (IANS)
