Ayushmann Khurrana will soon be reuniting with director Anubhav Sinha for Anek. The actor, who has always chosen different subjects in his films, will be seen challenging the serious issue of discrimination against the people of the North East in his next film.
On balancing the box office collections, Ayushmann said, “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 cinemas 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, the actor said, "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 and 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."
Anek is going to hit the theatres on May 27.
