Anek: Ayushmann Khurrana believes his movie with Anubhav Sinha is ‘entertaining’ yet ‘socially relevant’

Ayushmann Khurrana’s filmography would reveal the potential of him as an actor and his choices of scripts, which stands out. The actor has once again collaborated with director Anubhav Sinha in Anek, and he has now opened up about what to expect from the movie. 

As reported by Indian Express, Ayushmann said that he and Sinha share a common vision to see something different unravel on the big screen and also to be part of cinema which would not only entertain, but is also socially relevant. 

“Both Article 15 and Anek are films that aren’t solely meant to entertain but also spark dialogue and conversation with a larger thought. Anubhav sir has really pushed the envelope with this one,” said the actor. He added that he has given it his best show as an artiste to ensure the director's vision stays true to its core. 

In an exclusive with OTTplay, the actor talked about how the film’s title is “Anek '', yet it talks about "one India". 

“It talks about diversity. We are diverse as a nation. It's our biggest strength and weakness. It was Anubhav sir's brainchild to name it Anek. Alphabetically it is quite creative. The NE stands for North East. That's quite interesting.” he told OTTplay. 

This is the second time the actor-director duo are working together. They previously worked on Article 15, a crime drama that had a lot to say. Receving critial acclaim, the movie was based on crimes driven by caste-based discrimination in the country. 

Anek will see Ayushmann play a man who is sent on a mission to the North East of the country, trying to neutralise a threat posed by separatists. The movie, which is backed by Bhushan Kumar, is slated to hit theatres on May 27.
