Actor Ayushmann Khurrana was seen on a magazine cover sporting a kohl-eyed look with long and painted nails. He shared the picture on social media and called it a ‘gender fluid’ look. The post has since then brought massive criticism to the actor from the social media users who accused him ‘trying too hard’ and profiting off the LGTBTQ community.
Many social media users felt that the actor did not actually know the meaning of gender fluid before appropriating something from the community. His upcoming film, Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, has also been through a skeptical lens by the netizens. In the official plot released by the makers, Khurrana’s character falls in love with Vaani Kapoor’s character but later seems unsure of the path ahead when he gets to something about Kapoor’s gender identity. The makers have not revealed much details about Kapoor’s character but many have speculated that she will play a transgender person.
Ayushmann Khurrana Gender Fluid Look Trolled:
One user wrote, “Gender fluid is an IDENTITY. it’s more than nail polish and kajal.” Netizens also accused him of promoting his film and using the term gender to his advantage. Earlier this year, director Tahira Kashyap, Khurrana’s wife had revealed in an interview that he drank her breast milk citing the protein quotient of it. The same was seen repeated by the netizens who decided to troll the actor for the ‘gender fluid’ magazine picture. The actor has since deleted his picture.
One user tagged the said magazine’s official Twitter handle and wrote, “I too painted my nails black( well it’s black cherry pie) …should I DM you my address so you can give me an award for being a game changer???”
Ayushmann Khurrana I am looking at you , just because you painted your nails or applied kohl to your eyes doesn’t mean you’re gender fluid or breaking gender norms https://t.co/6UxzrWlUXV

Another user wrote, “Unless you are coming out as ‘gender fluid’, this would be an appropriation of Queer identities. A picture of you wearing nailpaint contributes to the narrative that ‘men’ can’t wear nailpaint but only non cis-men can, whereas one can wear nailpaint regardless of their gender.”
