The first trailer for Ayushmann Khurrana’s ‘Anek’ is here. The movie is all set for a theatrical release on May 27. The makers postponed the original release date of May 13, by a couple of weeks to avoid a clash with Ranveer Singh starrer, ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’.
‘Anek’ has been dubbed as a political thriller and it has been directed by Anubhav Sinha. This is Anubhav Sinha and Ayushmann’s second collaboration – their first being the critically acclaimed movie, ‘Article 15’.
‘Anek’s’ trailer showcases the fact that the movie’s focus is on North East India and the movie asks an important question – “What makes one Indian?”
