Ayushmann Khurrana teams up with Aanand L Rai for an action film. He said the film is zany and fresh.
Actor Ayushmann Khurrana has been roped in by filmmaker Aanand L Rai for his next home production film titled An Action Hero. The film, also produced by Bhushan Kumar's T-Series, focuses on an artist's journey both in front and behind the lens.
The movie, to be directed by Anirudh Iyer, is billed as a slick actioner with an offbeat satirical sense of humour. Khurrana, who will be seen in an action film for the first time, said he fell in love with the script. "I absolutely loved the script of An Action Hero instantly. It’s zany, it’s fresh, it’s disruptive and it has all the trappings of cinema that I have come to be known for," he said in a statement.
The 37-year-old actor said he is thrilled to be collaborating with Rai for the third time. "We hope our track record to entertain audiences worldwide with disruptive scripts continues with An Action Hero. I’m also very excited to work with Bhushan Ji again. Colour Yellow and T- Series are like a second home to me," he added.
