Ayushmann Khurrana is one of the popular Bollywood actors, who did serious theatre for five years, during his college days. The actor has done several plays at the Gaiety Theatre in Shimla. As per reports in media, the Vicky Donor actor was also the founding member of DAV College’s Aaghaaz and Manchtantra, which are active theatre groups in Chandigarh.

Recently, on World Theatre Day, Ayushmann spoke to Mid-Day and said, “Street theatre actually set my foundation to become a fearless performer. I became not afraid to take risks and I’m hugely grateful for this because it has shaped who I have become today. I have learnt so much from theatre because it challenges you to push your boundaries so that you can entertain and engage with audiences in a much deeper and interactive manner. I have taken my learnings from doing theatre and tried to emulate them for my on-screen performances and choice of scripts.”

The Shubh Mangal Savdhaan actor continued, “Theatre can be a boundless form of self-expression and I realized back then that if I had to become a good artist, I will need to constantly push myself to shed my inhibitions and pick projects that challenge my notion of how acting should be. I have enormous respect for theatre and theatre actors and whenever I get a chance, I try to make time to watch great performances and productions.”
