Apr 15, Ravi Gangwani rated it it was amazing Shelves: And they asked me that who was my role model. I said it’s Ayushman Khuranna. My entire transition from teenage to adult life happened watching his shows.
MTV’s Wassup, spoof movies: Bopk have grown watching all with big heart and huge admiration for him. This book was entirely familiar to me in terms of its events. Read only if you are his fan. Feb 18, Tejaswini rated it it was ok Shelves: It talks of his journey from being an outsider to making it big in Bollywood.
Though the editing is sloppy, the book is an honest effort to encourage acting aspirants and code snippets for them so that they can succeed in life. Casually picked it up after admiring his acting in Dum Laga Ke Haisha and this cdoe like reading his interview. Aug 06, Namitha Varma rated it liked it Shelves: A humble tinsel-town memoir – a bit self-deprecatory, a bit narcissistic.
Dec 08, Anchit rated it did not like it. A very propagandistic book. Here are some examples: Perhaps they liked him for being himself or perhaps it’s because all the attacks bounced off him. And ceacking he says that he felt intimidated being around tall guys and people with perfect bodies. You’re okay with comments that are the most fe Summary: You’re okay with comments that are the most ferocious across Indian channels and you’re intimidated by people with perfect bodies?
And then he goes on to add that he wasn’t called-in for wrestling because no one had a problem with him. Then why the hell did you bring it up?
Cracking The Code: My Journey To Bollywood by Ayushmann Khurrana
How was this embarassing? You came off with flying colors right. After a while you get to know that that guy was the one having an “attacker” personality in the roadies. He was the one who decided who was allowed in the show and who was out.
Besides this there’s no other mention crackinv him. As you read the book you start crackng whether this guy really was his mentor? If he was then how come he’s not mentioned anywhere else? And how convenient that a mentor of his is the person who makes the final call for who’s in show.
Makes you doubt whether he really means what he says. Being first at cfacking. And sometimes where he is not first he is still actually first in the end.
Apart from the being first in everything is the happy for everything, everyone is great around me. I boik understand that he’s an actor and maybe he has to be politically correct or he has to write in certain ways about other people if he wants to survive in the industry. But what I dislike is the way he’s marketed the book as being “honest” when it’s actually a very controlled image being set.
It wasted my time because I picked up this book thinking that there’ll be some learnings or I’ll experience someone else’s life. He tries to put in “learnings” or “code” which some people have highlighted publicly on the Kindle reader and then gives an example to support that code. I frequently found that the example doesn’t really support that code.
For example “take whatever life gives you” followed by how some military guy couldn’t come into the movies but is now creating a theatre play with his wife. He also cracikng the name of the play that his wife is creating now.
Meanwhile Ayush himself is shooting as a hero in movies. The writing style is the only part of the book that really shines.
Ayushmann’s writing style is really simple, and he crscking his ideas clearly, fluently. Other than that this book sucks. Thanks for wasting my time.

View all 4 comments. Jul 30, Aditi Varma rated it liked it. After reading Rishi Kapoor and Karan Johar’s autobiographies, this one felt a little bland.
However, it is an honest and simple narrative of the journey of a nobody from a teh town who made it decently big. Started off well, meandered in the middle, ended fine. Had some gyaan, but thankfully not bookreview crackingthecode ayushmann Book 63 week 31 Cracking the code by Ayushmann Khurana Rating: Had some gyaan, but thankfully not too much. Written in crackong very colloquial way. However, the Kindle cracing had many grammatical or punctuation mistakes, and overall, the book could have been edited better.
The language felt forced. All in all, a short and sweet read, you can finish within an hour or so. Available on Kindle unlimited. Decent read but nothing you’re missing our if you skip. Nov 06, Abhijeet Ranjan rated it liked it.
I liked the way he carried himself on idiot box. Then he went on to silver screen and left his mark with films. So I decided to go for this book so read about his journey. Well I liked the bookit was short and crisp. But it could have been presented in a better way. Some codes were good and could help one.
Dec 07, Vismitha rated it liked it. It was a fun read! I have to confess that this was the one book I bought because I thought the author was really goodlooking and I wanted thf autograph but the book surprised me and I ended up enjoying the book!
Dec 12, Rakshita rated it it was amazing. I bought this book because I always wanted to read an autobiography of someone.

And there he is! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It was delightful and a quick read. Apr 30, Anuradha Goyal rated it really liked it.
Detailed Review here http: Apr 03, Sindhura Motaparthi rated it liked it. Lots of positive energy. Feb 22, Rachna rated it liked it Shelves: It’s supposed to be a guide for aspiring actors so can’t say how useful it is but as a book it’s not much of a story and the writing is like that of a high school essay Oct 27, Jayant Shilanjan Mundhra rated it it was amazing.
I just never knew that Ayushmann could be this deft at writing as well.
The narration was gripping enough to keep you on your seat to read just another page before you could take a break. And, that was the case with almost every successive page. Loved the journey and experiences shared. Also, this book gave me an unprecedented idea about how reality TV shows and Bollywood industry actually function.
