Other than being a professional actor and singer, Ayushmann Khurrana is also into writing. The 34-year-old co-wrote his first book, The Code: My Journey In Bollywood, in 2015 with his wife Tahira Kashyap and often tweets shayaris (short Hindi poems) which are pretty popular among his fans.
The AndhaDhun actor says he wishes to collate and publish his poems as a book someday. “I would love to do it (get my poems published). It’s just that I need to churn out more shayaris because most of them are out in the public domain. I need to save some, but I also don’t want to keep them hidden. I don’t know... What I write, I want to share with people. It’s an artistic yearning. Hopefully, the book will happen with time,” he told DNA.

जिस अख़बार में आज मेरा नाम है,कल उसमें वड़ा पाओ परोसा जाएगा.एक बार फिर वक़्त की बदलती आदत को भरपूर कोसा जाएगा।-आयुष्मान————Jis akhbaar mein aaj mera naam hai, kal us mein vada pao parosa jaayega.Ek baar phir waqt ki badalti aadat ko bharpoor kosa jaayega.-Ayushmann— Ayushmann Khurrana (@ayushmannk) January 8, 2019
Though he intends to publish a book of his shayaris, Khurrana says he doesn’t want to take up writing commercially. “The idea behind it was to let people know that I write, and know me for that. I have no commercial aspirations related to my poetry. I am doing that with films and my music. This part of me (writing poetry) is for my sheer love for it.”
Talking about the growing popularity of his shayaris, he said, “The kind of traction that I get for it is unbelievable. Sometimes it is around 2,000 retweets for them. I never thought something like this could ever happen.
“It was a happy surprise to know that they (millennials) are finding these poems cool. Not just that, they want to share it with as many people as possible. I think that’s a blessing,” he added.
तारीखें याद नहीं रहती मुझे अक्सर। 2019 होगा तुम्हारे लिए, मैं अभी भी थोड़ा सा 2018 में हूँ। मंगल होगा तुम्हारे लिए, मैं आज इतवार में हूँ।-आयुष्मान— Ayushmann Khurrana (@ayushmannk) January 1, 2019
