The actor shared his Bollywood struggles with stylist Anaita Shroff Adajania
Actor Ayushmann Khurrana, who is currently enjoying his quarantine time with his family, is now counted among A-list actors in India. Hits after hits, Ayushmann Khurrana is also one of the most-sought-after stars in Bollywood.
However, the 35-year-old actor once encountered the dreaded 'casting couch' system in Bollywood. Khurana has managed to make his mark in the industry without any filmy connections or background.
The Roadies winner shared with celebrity stylist Anaita Shroff Adajania the time when a gay casting director auditioned him for a role.
"That director told me that he wants to see my private parts. I felt very strange listening to this. I laughed and said 'what are you talking about man? Are you serious?' I told him that you can give me a line and I will audition but I am not going to do that," he said.
With Badhai Ho Badhai, Article 15 and Andha Dhun, it's safe to say that Khurrana did not miss out on much by denying the sexual favour.
