Why: Ayushmann Khurrana’s career trajectory almost seems too good to be true. In 2018, he starred in the year’s most well-reviewed films that were also box office triumphs. Achieving this double validation is a rarity. Badhaai Ho was Khurrana’s first Rs 100 - crore hit. Along with Andhadhun, his releases grossed over Rs 600 crore worldwide. This year, he followed it up with the evocative and timely Article 15. There’s something heartening about Khurrana’s success, and this is why it’s a disruption in Bollywood. He’s achieved stardom slowly but surely, by giving good performances in good films, time after time. In Khurrana we trust.
