Ayushmann Khurrana recites a Bhagavad Gita verse at TIME 100 Impact Awards

During the awards, Ayushmann delivered an acceptance speech and celebrated the Bhagavad Geeta. He said, “Before I begin, I would like to recite one of the verses from our Indian/Hindu scripture and guide – The Bhagavat Gita – Karmanye vadhikaraste, Ma Phaleshu Kadachana, Ma Karmaphalahetur bhurma, Te Sango Stvakarmani. This verse encapsulates the essence of selfless action. It emphasises to be process oriented than result-oriented. It trains you to be detached from the fruits of your labour.”

Proudly representing India at the TIME 100 Impact Award, Ayushmann said, “It is a humbling moment for me to be recognized as an artiste by the prestigious TIME Magazine! I’m here to represent India’s moment under the sun and I’m proud of the fact that India is becoming a fulcrum of progressive story telling through cinema.”

Ayushmann recalls being a street theatre actor from his younger days

Further, he also emphasized the street theatre culture of India and shared how he was shaped as an artiste. He said, “I was very active as a street theatre actor. What exactly is street theatre? It’s a very unique format of theatre, where actors in a group form a circle at a public place, call people to watch the act. And the act encapsulates the social fabric of our country. It’s either a satire or a firm call for social change.”

He added, “Basically we were a group of Indian buskers, who traveled the length and breadth of India during our late teens and early twenties, and formed a connect with the masses or the lowest common denominator. All I know is my awareness of the grassroot level of India has made me who I’m today. As they say more local you go, the more global is your reach.”

Recently, Ayushmann Khurrana was seen in Raaj Shandilyaa’s Dream Girl 2 and delivered a rocking performance. Dream Girl 2 marked his 5th 100-crore worldwide blockbuster. With this, Ayushmann is surely on a roll!
