Bollywood star Ayushmann Khurrana has come back to Mumbai from the Northeast with loads of special memories to cherish for a lifetime. The youth icon wishes to return to the picturesque Northeast soon and reveals how the places and the people have left an indelible impact on him. He shared this trip will remain one of the most special ones as it helped him to discover the country. He shared falling short of words to describe the effect the trip left on him.
Ayushmann says, “I have always looked forward to discovering the unexplored. So, my trip to the North-east truly touched my heart. I experienced so much beauty, so much love from people, so much character and diversity of our country, that it will always remain one of my most special trips that helped me discover more about my beautiful country.” He adds, “Words will always fall short if I have to describe the effect North-east has had on me. I’m glad we could shoot in the North-east because it helped me learn something new about how incredible India is.”
Talking about the beautiful memories of touring and shooting for Anek in Northeast, Ayushmann says, “I can’t wait to go back to the Northeast because I have returned to Mumbai with memories that are so personal and overwhelming. I’m grateful that we could shoot Anek so smoothly there. I was shooting a film for the first time in the Northeast and I didn’t anticipate the love I would get from the lovely people there.”
He adds, “What I cherish the most is the warmth I got from the kids in Northeast. It was truly special to meet them and soak in their love. Also, I could get my family to spend some time with me and we toured Kaziranga and made beautiful memories together. It was special and we loved every bit of this serene, rejuvenating vacation.” ALSO READ: Ayushmann Khurrana Is Listening To THIS Soundtrack From Malayalam Film Kumbalangi Nights; Says ‘Can Never Get Over’ The Song
Ayushmann got to discover the extremely popular red tea (called Lal Sa) in Assam and has become a big fan of it. He reveals, “I discovered the beautiful Lal Sa (Lal Chai) and thoroughly loved it. I was drinking Lal Sa every single day on the sets and have got it home too. It’s like I have brought home a little piece of Assam with me. Whenever I miss being in the North-East, and I feel this frequently, I ensure I make myself a cup of Lal Sa and think about my beautiful time there.” ALSO READ: Ayushmann Khurrana Compares His Career Journey To That Of 'Every Indian Trying To Make A Name'
