Anubhav Sinha’s upcoming film Anek, starring Ayushmann Khurrana is all set to release on 27th May 2022. Ahead of the release, the makers have given an insight into Ayushmann’s dual identities in the film, Aman and Joshua. The actor posted a new promo to share his preparation for his new role captioning, “Aman ho ya Joshua, you will never know what my next move will be. Watch me unfold the sharp skills of an undercover cop. #AnekMissionBegins.”
In the video, Ayushmaan’s character takes a lie detector test, which he passes without letting the antagonist know about his real identity as an undercover cop. He plays the role of Aman who hides his identity as a cafe owner named Joshua.
The director shared how he wanted to showcase the rigorous training that undercover cops have to go through. He says, “It takes a great deal of training and strength both physical and mental to be an undercover cop and we’ve tried to portray that. This is just one of the things that an undercover cop is trained for.”
Directed by Anubhav Sinha, the film is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar and Anubhav Sinha and also stars J.D. Chakravarthy, Andrea Kevichüsa, Deeplina Deka and Manoj Pahwa. Presented by Benares Mediaworks, T-Series and AA Films, it will be distributed internationally by Cinestaan AA Distributors.
