Ed Sheeran’s Musical Interlude with Bollywood’s Ayushmann Khurrana in Mumbai


In a melodious mingling of international pop and Bollywood charm, British musical phenomenon Ed Sheeran has graced the Indian shores once again, bringing anticipation and excitement to his fervent Indian fans. Just days before his much-awaited performance in Mumbai, Sheeran was welcomed in the warmest manner possible by none other than the multi-faceted Bollywood actor and singer Ayushmann Khurrana.

Tuesday witnessed an enchanting encounter as Sheeran visited Khurrana’s residence. In true Indian hospitality, Khurrana introduced Sheeran to a traditional sweet delicacy, his mother’s homemade ‘pinni’, a gesture that transcends language and culture, sealing their friendship with the sweetness of home. Infused with the love and warmth of his family, Khurrana hoped that the ‘pinni’ would become a treasured memory for Sheeran, a symbol of the admiration and respect he holds for the artist.

Khurrana could not contain his enthusiasm regarding the meet-up with Sheeran, known for global hits like ‘Shape of You’ and ‘Thinking Out Loud’. “I have admired Ed Sheeran as an artist for years now. As a fellow musician, I have always wanted to connect with him and discuss how his mind works. I surprised him with my mother’s homemade ‘Pinni’! This is how we have always welcomed anyone at our home. Ed is in India, our country, to entertain us. He is at our home and we need to tell him how much we love him and his music too. So, I hope this gift will be a memorable one!” exclaimed an excited Khurrana, who also shared a snapshot of this special moment with his social media followers.

The interaction between these two artists wasn’t just contained within the walls of Khurrana’s residence. Earlier in the day, Sheeran showcased why he is adored globally, not just for his music but for his persona too.
