This year undoubtedly belonged to Ayushmann Khurrana. The actor has broken barriers and boundaries and taken up roles that others wouldn’t have. He started out with Vicky Donor, which was a film on a sperm donor. Then he took up the matter of caste in Article 15 and finally, we have the hilarious Bala which is based on a man who tries hard to hide the fact that he is balding.
However, another actor who has also taken up bold roles and knocked it out of the park with a film on surgical strikes has allegedly refused to do a film on contraceptives. Yes, we are talking about Vicky Kaushal. The Times of India reports that the actor was offered a film that deals with the subject of contraceptives. However, Kaushal refused the film and said: “Nahin abhi nahin, Baad mein dekhenge (No, not now. Will see later).”

The report further elaborates that Sony Entertainment Television were the producers who went to the actor with the offer and while they expected a ‘yes’ from the actor, they were taken aback at his refusal.
This year, we will also be seeing A-listers like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Akshay Kumar, Diljith Dosanjh and Kiara Advani in a film on an IVF treatment gone wrong. While such topics would have been considered taboo a while ago, producers and actors appear to be rushing to make such films now.
