Naam ANEK but release EK! Ayushmann Khurrana’s film to hit theatres on September 17, 2021


Anubhav Sinha’s ambitious next ANEK featuring Ayushmann Khurrana is scheduled to release in theatres on 17th September, 2021. The movie is currently being shot in the North East region of the country.

Ever since the makers have announced Anek that brings together the hit combo of director-actor duo – Anubhav and Ayushmann, it has created huge excitement among the audience and especially fans of the actor and director. Not to forget, Ayushmann’s rugged, slit-eyebrow look as ‘Joshua’ in the movie became the talk of the town. Now, with the makers officially announcing the release date of the film, it has built the anticipation even more!

Touted to be the first mainstream film ‘set in the north east’, the makers had recently roped in Hollywood action director Stefan Richter to design the action sequences in the film. He has earlier designed action sequences for Shah Rukh Khan starrer Don 2 and Ryan Reynolds’ The Hitman’s Bodyguard.

Post the success of the critically-acclaimed 2019 crime drama Article 15, Anubhav and Ayushmann have reunited once again for ANEK. While the details of the movie have been kept under wraps, both Anubhav and Ayushmann had shared a picture of the movie clapboard on their social media. Sources suggest ANEK is going to be Anubhav’s most expensive and big-scale film till date. The director is best-known for his track record of back-to-back critically acclaimed and commercial hits such as Mulk, Article 15 and Thappad.


Directed by Anubhav Sinha and Produced by Bhushan Kumar and Anubhav Sinha under Benaras Media Works and T-Series, ‘Anek’ is scheduled to release in the cinema halls on 17th September, 2021.
