Ayushmann Khurrana-Anubhav Sinha's Anek to release on March 31, 2022
The socio-political thriller is produced by Bhushan Kumar of T-Series and Anubhav's Benaras Mediaworks
Ayushmann Khurrana-starrer Anek has been set for a release on March 31, 2022.
Directed by Anubhav Sinha, the socio-political thriller is produced by Bhushan Kumar of T-Series and Anubhav's Benaras Mediaworks. The film is said to be set against the geopolitical backdrop of Northeast India.
This is the second collaboration between Anubhav and Ayushmann after their 2019 hit Article 15.
In a statement, Anubhav said that Anek was challenging 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."
Ayushmann said in a statement that the film pushed him out of his comfort zone. "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 the 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. It's the kind of new-age cinema that I believe in."
Thrilled to reunite with @anubhavsinha for a character that pushed me out of my comfort zone & with #BhushanKumar as a support system, #Anek will usher in a different language of cinema.

Producer Bhushan Kumar said he is proud to be associated with a story like Anek. "It takes a true visionary to make a film like Anek. It's a project I am incredibly proud to be a part of. Filmmaking is truly a celebration of diverse, spirited voices and I am glad we found a story like Anek to tell which will set a new benchmark," he said.
"I am delighted to team up once again with Anubhav and Ayushmann after our successful endeavours in the past. We are confident of the film we have made and can't wait for the audience to savour it," he added
Ayushmann’s last release was Gulabo Sitabo in 2020. He will also be seen in Abhishek Kapoor’s Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui and Anubhuti Kashyap’s Doctor G.
