Ayushmann Khurrana is an actor par excellence. He is also a very melodious singer. Now, the actor who saw the release of his new film Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan last Friday has received appreciation for his previous work AndhaDhun from none-other-than Lata Mangeshkar herself. Ayushmann won the National Award for Best Actor for his impeccable performance as a blind pianist in the film received praise from the veteran singer.
Lata Mangeshkar took to Twitter to applaud Ayushmann for his acting as well as singing in the film AndhaDhun and wrote, “@ayushmannkji namaskar. Maine aap ki film Andhadhun aaj dekhi. Aapne bahut accha kaam kiya hai aur jo gaane aapne gaaye hain wo bhi mujhe bahut acche lage.Main aapko bahut badhaai deti hun aur aapko bhavishya mein aur yash mile aisi mangal kaamana karti hun (I saw your film Andhadhun today.

Ayushmann was much touched by her words of praise and expressed his gratitude towards Lata as well. He wrote, “Lata di aapka yeh kehna mere liye bahut maayne rakhta hai. Aapke is protsaahan ke liye hee shayad maine mehnat ki thi. Aashirwaad ke liye shukriya (Lata didi, your words mean a lot to me. I seem to have worked hard for your encouragement, it seems. Thank you for your blessings.)
AndhaDhun was murder-mystery directed by Sriram Raghavan. It also starred Tabu, Radhika Apte and Anil Dhawan. Ayushmann’s character gets embroiled in a murder where he becomes the key witness.
