The trailer asks several questions to every Indian. Recently, both Ayushmann Khurrana and Anubhav Sinha talk about the challenges they faced while making Anek.
Talking about his role and the film Anek, Ayushmann said,
“Anek celebrates the spirit of truly being an Indian. Anubhav sir is pushing the envelope and setting a benchmark with his passionate storytelling with this film. My character Joshua compelled me to do things I had never done before, both physically and mentally. With the right guidance and training, I gave this role my best shot to bring life to everything Anubhav envisioned for the film.”
Director Anubhav Sinha said,
“Anek has been my most challenging film so far. It’s based on a topic that’s probably been less spoken of in the county. It re-emphasizes the fact that in spite of being different in our cultures, traditions, and languages, India can rise above and win as a country. Despite all the challenges that came our way, whether it was shooting in difficult terrain or filming during the pandemic, we powered through. I feel a great sense of pride and triumph that we’ve accomplished everything we set out to with this film.”
The film also stars Andrea Kevichusa, Deeplina Deka, Manoj Pahwa, and Kumud Mishra. The trailer is receiving an overwhelming response from the audience and it will be one of the finest films of the year. Anek will release on May 27, 2022.
