Anek trailer: Ayushmann Khurrana is an undercover cop fighting rebels in the Northeast
The film, directed by Anubhav Sinha, will release on May 27
The trailer of Ayushmann Khurrana-starrer Anek was released on Thursday. The political action-thriller sees Ayushmann step into the shoes of an undercover cop who is on a peace-building mission in Northeast India.
The trailer shows Ayushmann's character fighting a militant group called 'Johnson'. The actor can be seen in action mode, battling rebels and gathering intelligence as he goes about his mission.
The film is directed by Anubhav Sinha, who is famous for making films like Article 15 and Thappad.
Talking about his character in the film, Ayushmann said, “Anek celebrates the spirit of truly being an Indian. My character Joshua compelled me to do things I had never done before, both physically and mentally. With the right guidance and training, I gave this role my best shot to bring life to everything Anubhav envisioned for the film."
Anubhav said that the film is about a topic "less spoken of in the country."
Reminiscing the difficulties they faced during shooting, he said, "Anek has been my most challenging film so far. Despite all the challenges that came our way, whether it was shooting in difficult terrain or filming during the pandemic, we powered through. I feel a great sense of pride and triumph that we’ve accomplished everything we set out to with this film.”
Anek marks actor JD Chakravarthy's return to Hindi cinema after almost 10 years. The film also stars Andrea Kevichusa, Manoj Pahwa, and Kumud Mishra in key roles.
Anek is jointly produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and Anubhav Sinha's Benaras Mediaworks. It is set to release on May 27, 2022
