Ayushmann Khurrana Birthday Special: From Donating Sperm IRL To Being One of B-Town's Most Educated Actors, Here Are Some Lesser Known Facts About Bollywood's Charming Birthday Boy

Actor Ayushmann Khurrana is one talent ki dukaan and we can not even begin to express and appreciate how grateful we are to have Ayushmann in Bollywood. After acing theatre in his college days, Ayushmann tried his luck in Roadies where he struck gold. And from thereon, began his foray into television, stardom and films. And Ayushmann has not failed to impress us all. Right from Vicky Donor to Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, Ayushmann ‘ne dil khush kar ditta.‘ Ayushmann Khurrana Birthday Special: Beautiful Shayaris by the Actor Will Make You Fall in Love with His Words.

And on the eve of Ayushmann turning a year older, 36 years old on September 14, here are some lesser-known facts about the “Pani Da” and “Yahin Hoon Main” hitmaker. Happy Birthday Ayushmann Khurrana! The Star Who Made Unconventional Roles Look So Damn Mainstream!.

Ayushmann Khurrana’s original name was Nishant Khurrana. His father, an astrologer, not only changed his name to Ayushmann but also added the extra ‘n’ and ‘r’ in his names.

During his college days, Ayushmann and his friend would board the Pashchim express from Delhi to Goa and would sing and perform in the coaches. This was how they would fund their Goa trips.

Ayushmann’s dream of becoming an actor was born when he was just 4 years old after he watched Madhuri Dixit’s Tezaab.

If things would have worked out, Ayushmann would have portrayed Diljit Dosanjh’s role in Udta Punjab. But never mind… Diljit blew us away with his performance.

Ayushmann, who is a skilled guitar player and an amazing singer, especially learnt how to play the piano from USA for his role of a blind pianist in Andhadhund.

Ayushmann, who has been a Roadies alumni, had a flourishing career on TV before films came knocking on his door.

Apart from hosting and a number of shows, Ayushmann had cameo appearances in Kayamath (2007) and Ek Thi Rajkumari, to help him survive in Mumbai.

While Ayushmann Khurrana’s debut movie Vicky Donar (2012) made all the right noise, he disclosed that during his stint in Roadies in 2004, he was assigned a task- of donating sperm, which he did IRL.

After Vicky Donor’s success, when Ayushmann was out shopping with his mother, a female fan asked for his sperms. While his mother as mortified and speechless, Ayushmann told the girl that he would give it to her if his mom was not here with him.

Ayushmann had entered the first season of India’s Best Cinestars Ki Khoj in 2004 but he was rejected. Life came back in full circle for Ayushmann, who was called to be one of the judges on the show, 10 years later.

Ayushmann already has his autobiography, titled ‘Cracking The CODE – My Journey To Bollywood’, which was released in 2015 and was co-written by his wife Tahira Kashyap.

Ayushmann Khurrana not only has girls swoon and go weak in their knees but boys of the opposite sex too. In fact, a gay club once invited him to their party. He is a huge advocate for the LGBTQ community and in fact, his role of a homosexual in Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan was widely appreciated.

Ayushmaan Khurrana has started theatre groups back in college days. He is the founder member of DAV College’s theatre groups “Aaghaaz” and “Manchtantra” in Chandigarh.

Ayushmann is one of Bollywood’s most qualified actors, having got his Bachelors degree in English Literature along with a Masters in Mass Communication degree from School of Communication Studies, Panjab University.

Ayushmann’s illustrious 8-year career has been as rewarding for him in terms of awards, as it has been for us, the audience in terms of viewing. The actor has been the recipient of a National Film Award and four Filmfare Awards, only solidifying his position in the industry as an A-List outsider and an impeccable performer. While Ayushmann sure has talents that of Hollywood level and we wish Ayushmann loads of success with his film career, we are perfectly happy to keep the birthday boy to ourselves in B-Town. Happy Birthday Maan Na Maan… humara Ayushmann!

S P Balasubrahmanyam No More! Here Are Five Unknown Facts About The Legendary Singer That You Should Always Remember

Hyderabad, September 28: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy on Monday wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, requesting him to confer India’s highest civilian honour – the Bharat Ratna – on the late S.P. Balasubramanyam for his legendary contribution to music and arts. “As a tribute to the legendary singer for his outstanding contribution in the field of music and art, I request you to confer Bharat Ratna award upon him,” wrote Reddy.

He reminded the Prime Minister that music stalwarts such as Lata Mangeshkar, Bhupen Hazarika, M.S. Subbulakshmi, Bismillah Khan and Bhimsen Joshi were also conferred with the Bharat Ratna. “This will be the highest recognition to his remarkable work which lasted for five decades and stays in our memory forever,” he said.

Justifying his request, Reddy mentioned Balasubramanyam’s familiar contribution to the arts, more than 40,000 songs in multiple languages. “He won six national film awards for best male playback singer for his work, 25 AP state Nandi awards for his work in Telugu cinema, and numerous other state awards in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu,” he said, among other awards.

In 2001, Balasubramanyam was honoured with the Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan in 2011 by the Government of India. “Our state of AP is fortunate for being the birthplace (Nellore) of the great maestro. His untimely departure not only caused much distress to fans and celebrities living in India but also has affected the international music fraternity,” observed Reddy.

The chief minister said the doyen’s impact can be gauged by the continuous flow of tributes from music aficionados from across the world. On Sunday, former chief minister and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) supremo N. Chandrababu Naidu had also asked for a slew of recognitions and honours for the singer by the state government. Born in Nellore district of southern Andhra Pradesh, Balasubramanyam passed away on Friday at the age of 74 in a Chennai hospital.
