The film is the story of a ''rebellion, an uprising'', and the pursuit of an Indian, ''who wants nothing more than peace for the nation'', according to a press release.
The makers also released the trailer of ''Anek'' on social media on Thursday.
'''Anek' celebrates the spirit of truly being an Indian. Anubhav sir is pushing the envelope and setting a benchmark with his passionate storytelling in this film. My character Joshua compelled me to do things I had never done before, both physically and mentally. With the right guidance and training, I gave this role my best shot to bring life to everything Anubhav envisioned for the film,'' Khurrana said in a statement.
Directed by Anubhav Sinha, ''Anek'' is the filmmaker's other attempt at chronicling various sociopolitical issues in the country, following ''Mulk'' and ''Thappad''. It also marks Sinha and Khurrana's second collaboration after 2019's ''Article 15''.
The filmmaker said his latest directorial has been his ''most challenging film so far''.
''It's based on a topic that's probably been less spoken of in the county. It re-emphasizes the fact that in spite of being different in our cultures, traditions, and languages, India can rise above and win as a country. Despite all the challenges that came our way, whether it was shooting in difficult terrain or filming during the pandemic, we powered through. I feel a great sense of pride and triumph that we've accomplished everything we set out to with this film,'' Sinha said.
Kumar said the film is ''another brilliant piece of cinema'' from Sinha.
