Ayushmann Khurrana received several congratulatory messages from his industry colleagues and friends for securing a place in Time’s 100 most influential list.
On becoming the only actor to enter the prestigious list this year, Ayushmann Khurrana said, “I’m truly humbled with the recognition that TIME has bestowed on me. As an artiste, I have only looked to contribute towards bringing a positive change in society through cinema and this moment is a huge validation of my belief system and my journey. I have always believed that cinema has the power to bring about change by triggering the right conversations among people and society. Hopefully, through my content choices, I have been able to contribute towards my country and countrymen.”
