‘Our Industry Is At The Cusp Of Global Greatness’


Ayushmann Khurrana marked his presence at FICCI Frames 2023. At the inaugural moment, Ayushmann opened-up about the Oscar-winning ‘The Elephant Whisperers’ documentary and hailed India’s presence on the prestigious global stage. “Ten years ago, I had gone to this wildlife sanctuary at the trijunction of Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, and witnessed first-hand the relationship between man and animal. I never thought that in 2023, that relationship would’ve been told worldwide and give us an Oscar. The more we’re connected to our roots, the more we’ll move ahead. The more local we go, the more global we reach. Our film industry is at the cusp of global greatness. I am fortunate to be living in a time where the world has become a creative melting pot of culture,” Ayushmann shared. Directed by Kartiki Gonsalves, ‘The Elephant Whisperers’ won India its first Oscar in the short documentary category.
