For the third time, actor Ayushmann Khurrana will collaborate with filmmaker Aanand L Rai on the action movie Action Hero. Rai will produce the film alongside Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series under his Colour Yellow Productions banner.
Action Hero will be filmed in the United Kingdom. The rest of the cast and crew will be revealed in the near future.
Shubh Mangal Saavdhan (2017) and Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan (2017), both directed by Aanand L Rai, starred Ayushmann Khurrana (2020). Because both of their previous films were romantic comedies, Action Hero will be a departure for the actor-director duo.
Action Hero will be Ayushmann Khurrana’s second action film, following Anubhav Sinha’s Anek, which he completed earlier this year. Anek marks Ayushmann’s second collaboration with director Anubhav Sinha, following the highly acclaimed social drama Article 15 in 2019. The picture is set to hit theatres later this year. Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, directed by Abhishek Kapoor, is also in the works for Ayushmann.
Ayushmann Khurrana is currently filming Doctor G, a dramedy starring Rakul Preet Singh and Shefali Shah, for Junglee Pictures. The cast is currently filming in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. Anurag Kashyap’s sister, Anubhuti Kashyap, makes her directorial debut with Doctor G.
