“India is homophobic”, Ayushmannn Khurrana on the failure of Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui

Ayushmannn Khurrana is one of the most loved heroes famous for his realistic acting. The actor has worked in various different scripts. He is famous for choosing a different subject. However his last three films like Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, Anek and Doctor G, performed poorly at the box office. In the recent interview the actor opens up about the reason why his last three films failed on the Boxoffice.

The actor said, “I started with movies on taboo subjects. I suppose the type of subjects—it has to be a community viewing, and it has to have a wider film—the kids have also been watching. In fact, my last three films, including an LGBTQ film (Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui), really don't do well commercially because, unfortunately, our country is homophobic. Then there was Anek, a docudrama that was a very niche in terms of the tone of the film. Doctor G was an A-rated film, and given the kind of certification it got, the film did decently well in theatres. For a while, that was my learning for making a film.”

He further wrote,“If I stop taking risks, I will be conventional. I have always been unconventional, and I make those choices. I will be taking them in the future as well, regardless of success or failure. I just keep pushing the boundaries, and that's the beauty of the budgeting of the films, too. My films are mostly low- to mid-budget, so no one loses money and I can afford to take risks.”

Speaking of Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui It is directed by Abhishek Kapoor and starred Vaani Kapoor as a trans woman. The film started off with ₹3.75 crore on its opening day in India and was affected by rising number of covid cases later. It wrapped up with a business of ₹33.64 crore gross as per reports. Meanwhile his other two films , Anek and Doctor G earned as low as ₹9.7 crore and ₹ 31.49 crore gross at the domestic ticket window.
