Ayushmann Khurrana just dropped a great update for his fans. It had already been announced that the actor would be starring in Anubhav Sinha‘s directorial Anek and fans had been waiting for an update from the makers. So here’s some great news! The project has now got its release date. As per Ayushmann’s post on his social media handle, the film is set to release on March 31, 2022.

Check out the post here:

Ayushmann captioned the post saying:

Thrilled to reunite with Anubhav Sinha for a character that pushed me out of my comfort zone & with Bhushan Kumar as a support system, Anek will usher in a different language of cinema. Mark the date for this socio-political thriller: 31.03.2022.

It is being said that Anek will be set in the North-eastern part of India and will be a spy-thriller.

Speaking on Anek, Ayushmann said earlier:

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.

Meanwhile, Anubhav said:

It was a challenging film 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.

Producer Bhushan Kumar said:

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.

Jointly produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and Anubhav’s Benaras Mediaworks, this one will see Ayushmann in another unique role and I am sure he will be outstanding at his work. Apart from Anek, Ayushmann also has Abhishek Kapoor‘s Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui. The actor will share screen space with the beautiful Vaani Kapoor and the film is set to release on December 10, 2021. Looks like Ayushmann is all set to make sure his fans get to see him in versatile roles and I am super eager to watch these films.
