January 19 : Ayushmann Khurrana will soon jet off to London to commence shooting for his upcoming film An Action Hero later this month, the producers of the film announced on social media. The film will be shot in India and the UK.

Backed by Bhushan Kumar of T-Series, Krishan Kumar, and filmmaker Aanand L Rai's Colour Yellow Productions, An Action Hero marks the directorial debut of Anirudh Iyer, who earlier assisted director Aanand L Rai in Tanu Weds Manu Returns (2015) and Zero (2018). Anirudh Iyer has also co-written the film with Neeraj Yadav. An Action Hero is touted to be an actioner with an offbeat satirical sense of humour. Aanand L Rai had announced the film in October last year.

Describing the film as an out-of-the-box entertainer, Aanand L Rai said in a statement, "We are excited about An Action Hero finally going on the floors and seeing Ayushmann breathe life into the character. The movie is going to be an out-of-the-box entertaining story!"

Bhushan Kumar, chairman and managing director of T-Series, said the film has a quirky and fresh storyline. "We are enthralled to commence it's shoot in London and can't contain our excitement for audiences to witness this entertainment from Anand L Rai's stable," he added."

In October last year, Ayushmann had announced An Action Hero with a motion teaser. The actor revealed that the film will release in 2022. In the film, Ayushmann will be seen playing an action star. The teaser showed Ayushmann as an action star, who has to indulge in real life action to save the day. Sharing the teaser, Ayushmann had written, “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. Directed By - @iyer.anirudh. Written By - @neeraj.yadav911 & #AnirudhIyer"

This is the first time Ayushmann will be seen in an action film. Talking about the film, he had said earlier, "I absolutely loved the script of An 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 was last seen in the most recently released Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, where he was praised for his performance. He also has films like Anek and Doctor G lined up for release this year.
