It’s not uncommon for Bollywood to have a special connection with a co-star. But Ayushmann Khurrana has a special connection with veteran and much respected character actor Seema Pahwa. For three films, Ayushmann has played son-in-law to Seema Pahwa.
Be it the much applauded and loved Dum Laga Ke Haisha, and the romantic comedy Bareilly Ki Barfi or the very intriguing Shubh Mangal Savdhan, Ayushmann has always had Seema Pahwa share screen space with as his Saas. Given that Seema is a fine actor who has also coached upcoming actors for typically Indian roles, Ayushmann has enjoyed each collaboration with her.
A source close to the actor said, “Seema Pahwa and Ayushmann actually share a great rapport. They draw from each other while portraying heartland characters. There’s much to learn from a veteran actor who has worked both in theatre and cinema and Ayushmann has always enjoyed exchanging ideas with her. “
Ayushmann plays typical heartland characters with finesse and conviction that stands out amongst this generation. As for his quirky connect with Seema Pahwa onscreen, it only reiterates his command over his craft as an actor.
Ayushmann says,”Seema Pahwa is one of the most exciting and talented actors around. She’s not only fun on the sets but also a good bouncing board. I took her opinions on the climax and pre climax of BKB and SMS. She’s not just an actor but a great value addition.”
