Anek, a film by filmmaker Anubhav Sinha, is set to release on May 27. Andrea Kevichusa, a Naga model, will make her acting debut in the film, which also stars Ayushmann Khurrana. Andrea's debut in Bollywood was previously publicised on social media by stars Taapsee Pannu, Bhumi Pednekar, Kriti Sanon, Aditi Rao Hydari, Huma Qureshi, and Neena Gupta.
Andrea said in an interview that she had met a woman who didn't know if Nagaland was part of India. Recalling her unexpected experience, she said, “I was probably about 16 years of age and I remember telling the makeup artist that I have a flight to Nagaland and I am dying to go back home because I miss being with my parents. And she was like, 'Oh, is it? When are you going back to your country?' I was really taken aback because she didn’t really know that Nagaland is a part of India.”
She added, “It shouldn't matter how I look or what language I speak. I am an Indian because I was born in this country. I think it’s quite a disservice to the fact that people have to prove that they are an Indian. I am from Nagaland and I don’t think it's right to prove myself being an Indian to other cities or the rest of the country.”
In Anek, Ayushmann plays an undercover cop on a mission to bring peace to India's North East. Andrea will play Aido, a boxer in the film.
