    Ayushmann Khurrana discusses his forthcoming film Anek: This isn’t a $100 million film

    Ayushmann Khurrana discussed shooting an essential film like Anek, as well as his affection for Fahadh Faasil and Malayalam cinema, in a recent interview.

    For Anek, Ayushmann Khurrana will reunite with his Article 15 director Anubhav Sinha. The actor-director will address yet another societal issue in the film, which centres around the country’s north-east tensions and people. In a recent interview with ETimes, Ayushmann discussed working on such a significant film as Anek, as well as his admiration for Fahadh Faasi and Malayalam cinema.

    Ayushmann added, “When it comes to achieving a balance at the box office, “Dream Girl, Badhaai Ho, and Bala were light-hearted films. An Action Hero is a commercial film. You have to do commercial cinema so that cinema like Anek and Article 15 would find support. You get courage from your commercially successful films to do films like Anek and Article 15. That balance is very important. Of course, you can’t view Anek through a commercial lens. This is not a 100-Crore film. It’s an important film.” 

    When asked what he likes to watch, Ayushmann replied, “I watch all kinds of cinema. I love watching Malayalam cinema. I am a huge fan of Fahadh Faasil. His films are not commercial per se. He listens to his heart. I listen to Malayalam songs, Bengali songs. So, I think every genre of cinema is important. You need to know more about your country than knowing about world cinema. You need to know the people you are trying to connect with.”  

    Staying anchored and knowing the pulse of the audience, according to Ayushmann, is tremendously important. He said, “To make successful cinema, you need to know your country better than world cinema. There’s no bigger success than being an audience as well as a creator of your art. That’s what I feel.”

    Ayushmann admitted that he misses his music when asked if his affinity for Malayalam film is helping him seek prospects down South or produce-direct a movie. “I want to create music. I miss my gigs and writing songs,” the actor remarked.  

    Anek, directed by Anubhav Sinha, will be released in theatres on May 27, 2022.
