Ayushmann Khurrana is one of Bollywood’s top actors at the moment. And he’s done this without having a godfather in the industry. Along with Rajkummar Rao, Ayushmann has brought in a new content-driven phase in Bollywood and Ayushmann’s modus operandi is that he picks a film with a social issue at its heart and delivers a movie that is non-preachy but impactful. Take a look for yourself.

1. ARTICLE 15

Probably one of Bollywood’s best movies since the 2000s, Article 15 tackles caste realities in India.

2. BALA

Premature balding in men is a reality, believe it or not. And while a lot has been said about body positivity and loving yourself when it comes to women, men bear the brunt of patriarchy and have to pretend like they don’t care. That’s not true and Bala’s sensitive take on this issue was much appreciated.

3. SHUBH MANGAL ZYADA SAAVDHAN

Which other A-list Bollywood actor would have agreed to kiss another man on-screen? None. They were all too busy protecting their ‘machoness’. Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan spoke about gay rights and homosexual marriage.

4. BADHAAI HO

Parents are always seen as these sexless beings in society. But Badhaai Ho aimed to change that narrative with Neena Gupta getting pregnant while Ayushmann’s character was already a grown-up man.

5. DUM LAGA KE HAISHA

A fat bride? Gasp! Another issue that may seem small but think about all those articles you’ve read which help you lose weight for your big wedding. Think about all the women paying insane amounts of money to drop a kilo or two. And then watch Dum Laga Ke Haisha.
