With Shikarpur on Zee5, Ankush has finally stepped into the OTT world. Along with Kaushik Ganguly, Sandipta Sen, Debasish Mondal, and others, Ankush's debut web series has been lauded by critics and viewers alike. In the show, Ankush plays Keshto – a private detective in a small town in North Bengal. 

Meanwhile, the actor is also gearing up to debut as a producer with his dream project, Mirza. However, he parted ways with his initial partner Nexgen Ventures Pvt Ltd. while talking to OTTplay, Ankush said that he would not rush but new collaboration meetings are on. “The collaboration meetings are on and we are planning to go to the floors in the middle of this year. But we don’t want to rush,” said the actor. 

Talking about the initial setback, he said that he wishes to work with fresh talents but sometimes that decision backfires. “Bumbada (Prosenjit Chatterjee) always taught us to work with and encourage young people – artistes, directors, and producers. It is always safe to work with established names. But unless we take the risk of working with new and young people, how can we bring fresh talents on board? I have always followed this philosophy. However, there are possibilities of mistakes in this process also. I chose a group of incompetent people. People often fail to understand that these big houses today became big because of their sheer hard work for a long time. Anyway, It has been a learning experience. My audience will wait for me to release Mirza and that will happen. It is not easy to make a film. It involves a lot of hard work and we are confident to bring it through. I am not sad but hopeful,” the actor said.
