As an astrologer, Pandit P Khurrana had suggested his son Ayushmann in 2016 to change his name by adding an extra “n” and an extra “r.” Ayushmann modified the spelling of his name to make it numerologically correct on his father's recommendation. In 2017, he made it public. Considering that my father was an astrologer before I was even born. In actuality, Mumbai adopted the tradition of spelling names differently much later than the rest of the nation.
Pandit Khurana also wrote several astrological books.
