Ayushmann Khurrana's Take On Karva Chauth Is Totally Inspiring!

Ayushmann Khurrana is flying the flag for gender equality this Karva Chauth by asking men to join their wives in fasting

Ayushmann Khurrana’s take on Karva Chauth is totally inspiring! In an Instagram post the Bareilly Ki Barfi actor wrote:  “त से ताहिरा. Celebrating #Karvachauth with her. Why should only women fast. Let's celebrate equality and change this patriarchal tradition. If you can't dissuade her from fasting then join her.”

Ayushmann has rightly questioned the norms of Indian society which only asks women to fast on Karva Chauth. And he is not just talking the talk because the actor is fasting today with wife Tahira. 

The tradition of women fasting for the long life of their husband on Karva Chauth is an age-old one. But in today’s times, what a man can actually do is, fast along with his wife.

India is still a patriarchal country but when famous men like Ayushmann stand up for the rights of women and ask for equal treatment for the opposite sex, it is inspiring.

From playing a sperm donor in Vicky Donor to essaying the role of a man with erectile dysfunction in Shubh Mangal Saavdhan; Ayushmann is undoubtedly one of the most versatile actors we have had in the film industry.  And it is clear that the actor is also a socially conscious person.

On the work front, Ayushmann Khurrana has given two powerpacked performances this year in Bareilly Ki Barfi and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan. Both films have received immense appreciation from audience and critics alike.
