Anek star Ayushmann Khurrana on how Shah Rukh Khan impacted his life,  recalls first meeting with superstar

Ayushmann Khurrana is gearing up for yet another film that grapples with some important issues and asks some hard hitting questions. The actor will next be seen in Anek and as he is gearing up for his film’s release, Khurrana opened up about a Bollywood superstar who seemed to have made quite an impression on him- Shah Rukh Khan.

In conversation with TOI, Khurrana talked about the ‘impact’ SRK made on the former’s life. The Anek actor said that one of the main reasons he had even taken up mass communication studies was because of Khan and had even buckled up and studied seriously due to Khan’s influence. Khurrana’s efforts had ultimately borne fruit, and he had topped in his college.

The actor also recounted the first time he had met his hero as well. While working in radio, Khurrana had been tasked with interviewing Khan, but it ultimately fell through because the latter was shooting for an advertisement. Khurrana recalled how he had waited for almost seven hours and had to go back, but was able to catch a glimpse of Khan shooting on the sets. Khurrana also talked about how much he admired Khan’s personality as well. "He's my icon," he added.

Anek will see Khurrana reunite with his Article 15(2019) director Anubhav Sinha. The actor plays an undercover police officer in the upcoming film, which is penned by Sinha, Sima Agarwal and Yash Keswani. The director has also namkrolled the film along with Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar. Andrea Kevichüsa also stars in the film.

Anek will be released in theatres on May 27, 2022.
