Actor Ayushmann Khurrana has been given some hit performances one after the other. And while I have been left quite charmed with his on-screen stance, the star is making sure to treat us to many more different roles. After enjoying his gabru avatar to the fullest in Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, Ayushmann is now all geared up to play a cop in the political action thriller – Anek. But there is more to him than just being a cop this time, Ayushmann will be an undercover cop who is certainly leaving me impressed with his look.
Recently, the actor spoke about his role, saying…
This is the first time the audience will see me in this avatar. I have played a cop before but this is the first time they will see me going undercover. Joshua in Anek is street smart and intelligent. He knows his way around people and can fight bad guys not only in a physical capacity but also with his great intellect. I was very pumped to try my hands at portraying Joshua as it gave me an opportunity to explore something I hadn’t done before. I owe it to my audience to offer them new experiences with each film.
Ayushmann also further added that,
As an undercover cop, Joshua has the perfect traits of a spy and I had to work on my physical and mental skills to portray that. Right from his observation skills to his ability to combat the enemy, the character’s journey keeps one intrigued and gripped throughout. Also, the action sequences had to look real and raw to fit into the world of Anek and to portray what Anubhav had envisioned, I was inscribed with the right amount of guidance and training.
Anek revolves around the story of a man who is on a mission to unite the nation. The film has been majorly shot in the North East and seeing Ayushmann in a bulked-up avatar once again already has me rooting for this one.
Directed by Anubhav Sinha and jointly produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and Anubhav’s Benaras Mediaworks, the film releases on 27th May 2022. Other than Anek, Ayushmann also has Doctor G and An Action Hero in the pipeline, with these films, I am sure that Ayushmann is going to deliver us a power-packed 2022 on the big screen.
