Ayushmann Khurrana on Time’s 100 most influential list
Ayushmann Khurrana only Indian actor on Time’s 100 most influential list. He shares the honour with other artists like singer Selena Gomez and rapper The Weeknd.
Ayushmann Khurrana has been named among world’s 100 most influential people by the Time Magazine. The actor took to Instagram to share how “honoured” he was to be a part of the group. He shares the honour with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who, too, has been named in the list.
He wrote on Instagram, “TIME’s list of the 100 Most Influential People in the world is out, I’m honoured to be a part of this group: time.com/time100 @TIME #TIME100.” The post was showered with thousands of ‘likes’ within a few minutes and congratulations began pouring in for the Article 15 actor.
Ayushmann says, “I’m truly humbled with the recognition that TIME has bestowed on me. As an artist, I have only looked to contribute towards bringing a positive change in society through cinema and this moment is a huge validation of my belief system and my journey. I have always believed that cinema has the power to bring about change by triggering the right conversations among people and society. Hopefully, through my content choices, I have been able to contribute to my country and countrymen.”
Deepika Padukone also appreciated the actor’s film choices in the magazine, “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.”
