Known for coming up with unconventional films and subjects, Ayushmann Khurana again hits the right chord with his upcoming film as he is seen playing a special agent in the movie. The trailer features Ayushmann as an agent named Joshua, who is sent on a mission to the Northeastern part of the country. Given the task to neutralize a threat being posed by separatists, the actor fights against a local group led by the formidable leader Johnson. And so, he enlists a woman to infiltrate the group to gather intelligence.
In an Instagram post announcing the film’s wrap, Ayushmann described it as being ‘full of surprises’ and about an ‘untouched subject’. In a statement, Ayushmann said, “Anek, is a project that’s extremely close to my heart and it’s a powerful film because it should invoke a sense of patriotism amongst audiences.” The actor said that the film will also ask the question, “What does it mean to be Indian?”
