January 22 : Ayushmann Khurrana kickstarted shooting for his forthcoming film An Action Hero in London on Friday. The film is 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. The filmmaker described the film as an out-of-the-box entertainer.

T-series shared two pictures on its official Instagram handle, informing that the film has gone on floors. The first picture showed the clapboard of the film, while in the second picture, Ayushmann Khurrana and actor Jaideep Ahlawat can be seen with Aanand L Rai, Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar and Kanupriya.

Ayushmann will give his muhurat shot today. The actor will be joined by the multifaceted actor, Jaideep Ahlawat, who played the lead role in the Amazon Prime web series Paatal Lok in 2020.

Ayushmann shared a motion teaser of the film on his Instagram handle and wrote, “Tighten up your seatbelts and get ready for the chase as @jaideepahlawat joins #AnActionHero Directed By @iyer.anirudh Written By - @neeraj.yadav911 & #AnirudhIyer @aanandlrai #BhushanKumar #KrishanKumar #Kanupriya @tseriesfilms @tseries.official

Speaking about the film, Bhushan Kumar, Chairman & Managing Director of T-Series, said, “It has been a long wait for us to kick off the shoot for An Action Hero. We can’t believe that the movie is already going on floors today and are excited to give it our best! The film has a fresh and quirky story and is mounted on a lavish scale.”

Filmmaker Aanand L Rai said, “This is the first time that we are experimenting with this genre and An Action Hero is going to be an unconventional entertainer. Today is a proud moment for me to watch Anirudh behind the camera, directing his own film. I have seen him grow as a director and nothing makes me happier than watching him own this film completely! We began the muhurat shoot with a lot of enthusiasm today and I’m certain the energy will translate on-screen too.”

In October last year, Ayushmann had announced the film with a motion teaser, and wrote, “Dikkat Bas Ek Hi Hai, Mujhe Ladne Ki Acting Aati Hai, Ladna Nahin.” In the film, Ayushmann will be seen playing an action star, who has to indulge in real life action to save the day. 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."
