Ayushmann Khuranna’s Anek trailer is gripping
The trailer of Ayushmann Khuranna’s latest film ‘Anek’ dropped in last day and it has been getting tremendous response from all corners. Set in North East India, the film follows the journey of an undercover cop on a mission to find peace. Anubhav Sinha, who has directed films like ‘Mulk’ and ‘Thappad’, is helming this film. It is the director’s second outing with Ayushmann after the widely acclaimed ‘Article 15’.
‘Anek’ has its screenplay written by Anubhav Sinha, Sima Agarwal and Yash Keswani. The film is centered around the violence and the injustice that the people of North East India suffer.
Elaborating on the same, Ayushmann said in a statement, “The film is based in the North East. It’s about unifying the North East with the mainland and not too many films have been made on the region which will talk about this. This includes actors from the northeast or their representation. We have literally ignored the North East of our country and the kind of racism they face in the mainland, I think it’s very disheartening.”
The film’s cast also includes JD Chakravarthy, Andrea Kevichüsa, Deeplina Deka, Manoj Pahwa, Kumud Mishra and Loitongbam Dorendra.
‘Anek’ was originally scheduled for theatrical release on 17 September 2021, but was postponed owing to COVID-19 pandemic. It is slated to hit screens on 27 May 2022.
