Chhapak actress Deepika Padukone shared her heartiest congratulations to actor Ayushmann Khurrana on his big achievement.

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.”

Ayushmann Khurrana made his Bollywood debut with a very unique and interesting film Vicky Donor. From his very first film, he set a different target into the film industry.
