Ayushmann Khurrana unveiled his next project Action Hero on Saturday. For the film, he will once again collaborate with Aanand L Rai. The two have previously worked together on the Shubh Mangal Saavdhan franchise. Bhushan Kumar, the CEO of T-Series, will also produce the film. Anirudh Iyer is set to direct the film.
While announcing the news, Ayushmann Khurrana shared an intriguing teaser. We hear his voice in the video claiming that he can act like he’s fighting, but he can’t fight for real. “Dikkat Bas Ek Hi Hai, Mujhe Ladne Ki Acting Aati Hai, Ladna Nahin… Super excited for a genre-breaking collab ONCE AGAIN with @aanandlrai and #BhushanKumar! This one’s special! #ActionHero,” he captioned the post.

Rai has worked with director Anirudh Iyer on his films Zero and Tanu Weds Manu Returns. The film’s producers have also taken on board a well-known actress to portray the female lead. According to sources, the film will be unlike anything the two have done before. The big-budget film will feature Ayushmann in a never-before-seen role and will be shot primarily in the United States.
