The film’s official press note cites Action Hero features an artiste’s journey, both, in front and behind the lens, and it will boast of “slick action and offbeat satire”. Previously, Ayushmann has collaborated with Aanand L Rai on Shubh Mangal Saavdhaan and Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhaan, both were appreciated by the audience. Action Hero is co-produced by T-Series.

Ayushmann Khurrana, in a statement, said that the Action Hero script is “destructive” and also included all the stereotypes that he has come to be associated with as an actor.

“I’m thrilled to be collaborating with Aanand sir for the third time and I hope our track record to entertain audiences worldwide with disruptive scripts continues with 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.

“I absolutely loved the script of 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,” Ayushmann said. Action Hero will be shot in India and the UK, and is aiming for a 2022 release.

Ayushmann’s upcoming films include Doctor G and Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui.
