Ayushmann Khurrana is known for his bold, unconventional roles in cinema. He has also had no qualms in getting intimate on screen as several films of his have had kissing scenes. But it seems, the bold scenes did give him trouble at home!
In an interview, Ayushmann has revealed that there was a certain level of discomfort in his marriage and it was under strain for nearly three and a half years because he kissed co-star Yami Gautam in his debut film/Vicky Donor. The Andhahdun actor made this revelation while speaking to Neha Dhupia on her chat show No Filter Neha.
According to the News Minute, Ayushmann shared that because of that one onscreen kiss, the happiness of the film turning out to be a blockbuster and a critically acclaimed one, went down the drain. He revealed that while his wife Tahira was aware of the script and that it demanded a kiss, she got cold feet when she watched in on the big screen. Calling it “the lowest phase of their life”, he added that it took over three years for the uneasiness to fade away.
Tahira was also expecting her first child during the making of Vicky Donor. In fact, the couple was blessed with their baby boy, Virajveer, just three months before the film’s release.
But of course, all is well in their paradise now. Recently Ayushmann made everyone swoon when he posted a pic of him fasting for his wife on Karwa Chauth.
