In an exclusive chat with us, Ayushmann Khurrana and Tahira Kashyap talk about their upcoming film – Toffee, the rampant issue of child marriage in India and much more!
Ayushmann Khurrana has impressed one and all with his acting and singing capabilities. But looks like the actor is not stopping at that! He has now taken a plunge into production too. The actor turned producer for wifey Tahira Kashyap’s debut short film and we have to say what a fantastic decision he has taken. The duo is coming out with an inspirational tale, Toffee. The short film is now out on Eros Now, but before Toffee was released, we met with Ayushmann and Tahira for a brief chat. Not only did they talk about the film, but also spoke about the rampant issue of child marriage in India.
For those of you who don’t know, Toffee revolves around the life of two young girls. It showcases the innocence of the children, while capturing their day to day activities. It also showcases their dreams and aspirations and how they are crushed by the society and the practice of child marriage. Director Tahira revealed to us that Toffee has been inspired from real life incidents in her life, while producer Ayushmann mentions how they chose to make the short film because the issue of child marriage is so rampant in the rural and urban cities of India. Check out our full video interview with Ayushmann and Tahira above!
While talking about the burning issue of the hour, Ayushmann told us exclusively, “People live in a bubble, but I have to say that casteism still exists in India, child marriage is still rampant in India, so Toffee is the need of the hour.”
