Actor Ayushmann Khurrana is all ready to make another film with his Article 15 director Anubhav Sinha again. According to Rajeev Masand’s column in Open magazine, Ayushmann has given his nod to the filmmaker’s “highly political drama” titling Anek, which is scheduled to release in April.
Their first collaboration, Article 15, also had political overtones. The critically-acclaimed film, which shone a light on the caste apartheid in the country, featured Ayushmann as a police officer investigating the rape and murder of two girls in rural Uttar Pradesh.
Anubhav called Ayushmann and Taapsee Pannu his favourite actors.
He stated, “I am about to make a movie with Taapsee next. Shooting will start next month. I have to mention that Taapsee and Ayushmann are my favourite actors or stars so to speak, whatever you call them. I love them. Our thought processes are in sync with one another”.
Ayushmann as of now seems to have a lot in his plate. He is busy promoting Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, which has just hit the theatres. The film stars Neena Gupta, Gajraj Rao and Maanvi Gagroo in pivotal roles.
Anubhav, meanwhile, is in jitters about his release of Thappad. The film stars Taapsee in the lead role and revolves around a woman’s decision to walk out of her marriage after her husband slaps her at a party in the heat of the moment.
Ayushmann as we said a lot in his plate. He will be seen in Shoojit Sircar’s Gulabo Sitabo alongside Amitabh Bachchan. Gulabo Sitabo a legendary pair of puppet sisters have been part of Uttar Pradesh folklore.
