'Films should raise adult issues with innocence,' says Ayushmann

Mumbai: After charming the audience as a sperm donor in his debut Vicky Donor, Ayushmann Khurrana's next film is on the subject of erectile dysfunction, and the actor says adult issues should be dealt with innocence to avoid vulgarity. RS Prasanna's Shubh Mangal Saavdhan is a love story of a young couple, Ayushmann and Bhumi Pednekar, whose parents come to know about the protagonist's erectile dysfunction.

In an interview, Ayushmann says, "I had asked Shoojit Sircar (director of Vicky Donor), 'Why did you chose me for the role of a sperm donor'? he said, he wanted somebody who has a clean image and looks innocent. If that innocence is taken out of the subject then it may become cheap." The actor says Shubh Mangal Saavdhan also required an innocent and a lovable person to play the character. "Bhumi and I had to bring that innocence in our chemistry to deal with the subject." he adds.
The actor says he was not surprised when the makers approached him to play 'Mudit' in the film.
"It was very ironical when I got to know the subject, I felt life has come a full circle from a sperm donor to erectile dysfunction. This kind of film is required in today's day and age. People are patriarchal, they don't talk about problems and it's sad."
