As Anek is gearing up for a theatrical release, Ayushmann Khurrana is all set to take the big screens by storm. The film, directed by Anubhav Sinha, is set in India's northeast, an area that few filmmakers have visited. Ayushmann got talking about filming Anek and his feelings towards India's Northeast in a recent interview with a leading news portal.

The Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui actor further spoke about the concept saying, "The setting for the film is in the northeast. It's about uniting the northeast with the rest of the country, and there aren't many films (on the subject) about it. Actors from the northeast, or their representations, are included."

The actor didn't hold back when it came to acknowledging the bigotry that the people of Northeast have suffered. Ayushmann described it as "disheartening." "It's a completely unique film that has never been seen before in Indian cinema. I find it quite disappointing that we have completely disregarded the Northeast of our nation and the bigotry that they endure on the mainland. Mainland residents would notice that 'kya galat kar rahe hai woh'."

The Vicky Donor actor is teaming with Article 15 director Anubhav Sinha for Anek, and the two want to deliver yet another vital lesson. Ayushmann is joined by other performers from the Northeast, as well as veterans Manoj Pahwa and Kumud Mishra, in the film.
