Ayushman Khurrana proved his mettle in anchoring, singing and more recently acting has now added one more feature to his career. The actor has now turned producer for his wife's directorial debut titled toffee.
Toffee a short film talks about child marriage.
The Vicky Donor actor said,Producing films was not really on my radar. I am more of an actor and singer and performer. I am more of an artiste. I don’t understand numbers. We needed somebody who is liable and would do it in a clean, nice manner. So we got Mukesh Chhabra for this short film.
Ayushman had never thought abiut becoming a producer but he felt a story on the issue of child marriage needs to be talk about. The idea of this film came to Tahira's mind during her childhood when she met a girl named Ritu, who was married when she was 15-year-old.
It was a real life situation for Tahira that triggered her to do something about it. That time she did not think of making a short film. These kind of things are rampant in our country. We are trying to pass on the message that child marriage is not the right thing,he said.
As of now Singing and acting are Ayushmann's priorities and he would only produce movies if the story seems interesting. If there is something interesting which is not too production heavy and is simple, easy, small budget then why not. I need to pad up with certain people who know the craft of production very well, he said.
Here's wishing luck to Ayushman for his new journey !!!
