Not the first time when Ayushmann Khurrana kissed a boy
New Delhi : Ayushmann Khurrana is all set to present his new movie Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan in which he will be playing a character of a gay man, interestingly he has been hitting the headlines for his lip-lock scene with his co-star Jitendra Kumar.
The actor talked more about the scene and his past experience. "I have kissed a boy in the past. During MTV Roadies, we were playing truth and dare. I got the dare (to kiss a boy) and so I did it," said the actor.
Ayushmann added: "If I can do it for a dare then why can't I do it for a film? This kind of film is happening in India in 2020. I feel a boy can fall in love with a boy, or a girl can fall in love with a girl. It doesn't matter because at end of the day. Love should be treated as love."
Now talking about Jitendra's experience of kissing a guy, Ayushmann said, "Before shooting the kissing scene, I asked Jitu if he had ever kissed a boy. He told me he had done it in the past. He told me that ragging takes place in engineering colleges, and he was given a task to kiss four boys. I feel this is ridiculous. I feel ragging should be banned and it is not right. It shouldn't happen. It wasn't banned back then, so Jitu had to do it. So, he has done method acting before this film."
He also mentioned that he is glad to learn that Indian audience is ready for a film like this.
Ayushmann said: "I feel glad and I am pretty sure that India is ready for this kind of films now. In the comments section (of the trailer), we didn't receive any negative comments, which is great. I feel India has become progressive and the youth of this country is really progressive and we are really proud of this film. I am thankful to the audience for appreciating the trailer and songs of our film."
Shubh Mangal Jyada Saavdhan has been slated to release in theatres on February 21.
