Where will this road take you? And, most importantly, how do you make it happen? In Cracking the Code, Ayushmann Khurrana—actor, singer and television personality—tries to answer these questions and outlines a step-by-step guide to making it big in tinsel town, drawing on his personal experiences as a rising star in Bollywood.
Tell us a little about the role that your wife, Tahira, played in your professional life. In fact we co-wrote Cracking the Code. Have you managed to make any permanent friends from the industry, contrary to what you have written? My friends are not really from the industry. Some of them are successful, some of them are still struggling. I could call Shoojit Sircar my friend because he gave me the first chance in auditioning me. He trusted me a lot and I can trust his judgment and his opinion about me.

The journey is what matters, so make the most of it! 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 small town who made it decently big.
Started off well, meandered in the middle, ended fine. Had some gyaan, but thankfully not too much. Written in a very colloquial way. However, the Kindle version 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. Apr 05, Smeet Mandaliya rated it really liked it. A Good book on following steps towards your desire. Jan 25, Nicky Modi rated it liked it. Dear Sir Ayushmann, Sorry to be quite judgmental, you've never suffer any bad luck or set back phase. After laying down the book thoroughly i can say not a single incident of your touched and that i can have along.
I appreciate for as you've mentioned "Ultimate code is "Destiny". Why not focus on how you could better your craft? Why not focus on making better c Dear Sir Ayushmann, Sorry to be quite judgmental, you've never suffer any bad luck or set back phase. Why not focus on making better career choices?
As of this day, it has become a big, level playing field. We all are just as good or bad as our last outing, in the movies or in real life. The point is to be positive and optimistic. If you can be even half as energetic as Ranveer Singh, you are right on the right track! Will curiously seek you in the movies further. God bless you, Gratitude. View 2 comments. Ayushmann Khurrana is one of those rare gems of bollywood who has transformed his dreams into reality through extreme hardwork and perseverance.
If you want to excel in your craft, this is your book. Ayushmann has succinctly explained the various aspects of film and television industry with examples taken from his own life experinece.
It is a must read for those who dares to dream but finds it difficult to transform it into reality. Besides, this book will provide its readers an inside view of the film industry to understand the reality and mindset of its people. He has also talked about the importance of relationships in one's life. The reason I say that this is commitment to self because these are the only people who will time and again, make you meet your real self.
And being real is the only key to happiness and success. Prepare yourself. Make your weakess your strength and supplement your strength with an equal dose of humanity. If it comes knocking at your door, its worth giving your hundred percent to at least once.
Happy Reading Honest'mann' Ayushmann Following him since 'Vicky Donor', this actor has been one celebrity I have failed to decode, being an outsider, how could he make it this large. And here it is. The code decoded by him. As honest as his on screen performances - Yes, performances and not mere 'acting'. The codes that string the memoirs are relatable. And so is the book. A must read for anyone and everyone, just for sake of one thing - once you learn being honest to yourself, everything else falls in place..
And that is the hidden code. Thanks Ayushmann for writing this wonderful honest journey and Amazon for getting it on my device. 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. Do you want to be famous? Do you want to be successful? If the answer is yes, then quit reading the book right away. But if you are lazy, easily bored or have some time to kill, read on I want to begin this book with utmost honesty.
And let me assure you that this isn't an attempt to be pompous, vain or preachy. I have read quite a few books written by legends and can safely say that this is perhaps the most 'un-legendary' that's not even a word, by the way stuff to be published so far. All I can assure you is that there is nothing in here that is going to be pretentious. Considering the fact that you have read this far, let me just say that wealth, fame and success are qualities that are relative.
For some, being the top industrialist is all about being rich; for others, making it to Forbes' Most Powerful list is the ultimate degree of being successful; while for someone else, having the best confection nary shop for example in their own small city is the defirritiori of success.
But what is that one secret longing that unites you and me? What is that fantasy we all or at least most of the readers who have picked up this book have nurtured? It's the love of the stage. The love of Bollywood. It's about being an actor, wanting to become an actor, choosing your own acting niche, aspiring for the stage. It's about being in awe of the lights, the camera and the action, wanting to be labelled as a 'nautanki', to be called a 'dramebaaz', yearning for people to acknowledge the hero or the heroine in you, and no matter how derogatory it sounds, but liking it when someone refers to you as an 'actor saala',.
