Ayushmann Khurrana is once again changing the narrative and transforming into new roles with his latest film Anek.

Talking about his previous films and Anek, the actor says, “I have always tried to unite the whole of India through inclusive subjects and disruptive scripts and characters that challenge the status quo at every given step. If I’m being viewed as someone who is contributing to sparking a dialogue and aiming to have a positive social impact, then I’m doing my job correctly.”

Recently, the trailer for Anek released, and netizens have heaped on the praise for the exciting action drama! We have learned that Ayushmaan is ecstatic about the film and that the trailer is getting such a great response.

Anek sees Ayushmann Khurrana once again take on a new avatar, this time of an undercover cop, in an untold story set against the geopolitical backdrop of North East India. An action-thriller about a rebellion, an uprising. An Indian, who wants nothing more than peace for the nation.

Ayushmann says, “When we set out to make Anek, Anubhav sir was very clear that he wants to make an engaging story that would also make people ponder about our identity as Indians. We are so diverse, different, and unique as Indians but do we celebrate that and make it our strength? Anek intends to pointedly ask and hopefully answer that question which is why this film is so special to me. I have always hunted for clutter-breaking content and Anek rests at the top of the pile for me.”

“I’m delighted with the response to the trailer of Anek. It has struck a chord in the hearts of Indians and I couldn’t be happier. The fact that people pan India are voicing the need for unity and inclusivity after watching the trailer of Anek is enough validation for me as an artiste”, he adds.
