Ayushmann Khurrana has added another feather to his hat by winning the spot in TIME's 100 most influential people all over the globe. With his films like Vicky Donor, Badhai Ho, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan and Dream Girl, the actor has managed to burst stereotypes and has influenced several people. This is why he has been honoured a place in the list of 100 most influential people all over the globe.
As he acquires the spot, Deepika Padukone has written an appreciation post for the actor. She wrote, "I remember Ayushmann Khurrana vividly from his debut film, Vicky Donor. He had, of course, been a part of the entertainment industry in various other ways for several years before that, but the reason you and I talk about him today is because of the impact he has been able to create through memorable films and iconic characters. Where male protagonist roles often fall into the trap of stereotypical masculinity, Ayushmann has successfully and convincingly transformed into characters who challenge those very stereotypes."
She further added, "In India, with a population of more than 1.3 billion, only a tiny percentage of people see their dreams come alive, and Ayushmann Khurrana is one of them. You’re probably wondering, How? Talent and hard work. Sure, that goes without saying. But more important, patience, perseverance and fearlessness. A little insight for those who dare to dream."
