He had played a sperm donor in this year's hit film "Vicky Donor", but Friday, Ayushmaan Khurana turned into a blood donor.
The young actor, who was in hometown Chandigarh, donated blood at a camp in his alma mater Panjab University.
Ayushmaan was the first to donate blood at the camp organised by the university's English department.
The actor, who had donated blood five times before, also inspired students to join the voluntary blood donation movement.
The actor shot into fame some months ago with the success of "Vicky Donor", which dealt with the taboo subject of sperm donation.
Ayushmaan completed his post-graduation from Panjab University's School of Communication Studies a few years ago before becoming a radio jockey and a TV show host.
Nearly 70 students, mostly women, also donated blood at the camp, the department's chairperson Harpreet Pruthi said.
