Ayushmann Khurrana's book is a cheat sheet for anyone with a dream
In his book, Cracking The Code, actor Ayushmann Khurrana traces his journey from small-town nobody to big-city star, and recalls how he’s always taken the unlikely route to making it.
The year was 1988. Tezaab had just released. And people were waking up to a new star: Madhuri Dixit. A sweet girl from a middle-class family of nobodies, who had never dreamed that she would make it in Bollywood. But here she was, dancing away to Ek Do Teen, and unknowingly inspiring millions across India.
One of them was a four-year-old boy called Ayushmann Khurrana, from another family of nobodies in Chandigarh. For Ayushmann, Tezaab played out in a dingy single-screen theatre where he sat between viewers who whistled, cheered and threw coins at the screen.
