“I have been trying to normalise taboo conversations in India through my cinema. Right from my debut film ‘Vicky Donor’, you will notice that I have tried to do my bit to have a constructive conversation with society about the need for change,”

Ayushmann said.

Ayushmannn added: “I have strongly felt that through cinema, we could tell society to widen its gaze towards important subjects that were not being addressed.”


Ayushmann said that “Badhaai Ho” was an attempt to highlight the fact that physical love between parents should not be frowned upon. Pinterest

Ayushmann is happy that India has accepted his films. “We are a shy country, and there is beauty to it, but what I am happy about is how people of my country have appreciated my style of cinema,” he said.

Ayushmann said that “Badhaai Ho” was an attempt to highlight the fact that physical love between parents should not be frowned upon.

“Their love is the biggest proof that our society wants to normalise deepseated issues, and that’s the biggest validation for me as an artiste. With ‘Badhaai Ho’, I tried to normalise the sexual desire that our parents can have, and there’s nothing wrong in that.”

Ayushmannn added that for Bollywood, such a storyline was rare but it was necessary.

The makers of “Badhai Ho” have announced a follow-up, “Badhai Do”, recently. The new film will star Rajkummar Rao and Bhumi Pednekar. (IANS)

While everyone is making their big fat Indian wedding dreams come true, they are also adding their carbon footprint and undue energy consumption. Modern couples are now looking for ways to have a wedding with a sustainably conscious mindset. It's become about incorporating less waste, locally sourced and seasonal food, natural materials over the use of plastic.

Include the work of local vendors ensure minimal packaging requirements, thus saving on unnecessary plastic and lamination. It also decreases the need for transporting elements from other cities and hence lowers the carbon footprint. For instance, at one of our weddings, we made use of sand art for a setup in Jodhpur. This helped promote local work while also being environmentally friendly with zero wastage of other materials. In another instance from Rajasthan, the traditional glass-blown technique was used to build decor items while giving a cultural touch to the destination wedding.
