Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana and ace filmmaker Anubhav Sinha on Friday announced that their upcoming film ‘Anek’ will arrive in theatres on March 31, 2022.
The film is touted to be a slick spy thriller, set against the geopolitical backdrop of Northeast India.
Ayushmann and Anubhav had earlier collaborated for the film ‘Article 15’, which was a hit film, ANI reported from Mumbai.
Ayushmann who plays the role of Joshua in ‘Anek’ said, “It’s only once in a while that an actor comes across a story that makes him jump out of his comfort zone. While I have always backed novel stories, ‘Anek’ pushed me to perform with a renewed zest. It’s a kind of script that drives a person to give it your all. I am so proud that we’ve made a film like this and even more fortunate that I got the chance to headline it.”
Talking about the release date, Anubhav said, “It was a challenging film to write and a difficult one to make. We shot it in rough terrain but what makes it special is that the takeaway was so gratifying. It was a delight to work with Ayushmann again who with his depiction of Joshua breathed life into the story.”
‘Anek’ is jointly produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and Anubhav Sinha’s Benaras Mediaworks.
