Ayushmann Khurrana, who is currently gearing up for the release of his upcoming film, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan was recently caught up in a controversy for his statement on same-sex marriage. During a recent interaction with the Times of India, the multitalented actor had said, “We are really proud that we are supporting the community. Our country is very progressive that it legalised same-sex marriages.”
Soon after reading it, many netizens called out actor for being wrong. However, Ayushmann took to his Twitter page and apologised for the misinformation. He tweeted, “A genuine slip here though I really wish same-sex marriages get legal in India.”
Check out the tweet below:
For the uninitiated, in 2018, the Supreme Court of India decriminalised homosexuality in a monumental verdict.
A couple of days back, on the occasion of Republic Day 2020, Ayushmann had shared a photo posing with Indian National flag and LGBT pride flag. He wrote, “Let equality triumph! Let’s make this year all about spreading, sharing, and receiving love!”
