Ananya on age gap with Ayushmann
Now, as per a report by ETimes, at the trailer launch when the 24 year-old was asked the 14 year age difference between herself and the 38-year-old Ayushmann, she said, “I don’t think this is today’s issue. The age difference has always existed. People should not fixate on age while watching the film. If they are preoccupied with this factor, then it becomes a problem. As long as two actors are suitable for their respective roles, it’s perfectly acceptable.”
