New Delhi: Ayushmann Khurrana has an upcoming film ‘An Action Hero’ lined up for release this weekend. On Wednesday, the actor took to Instagram to honour Ajay Devgn’s action avatar from his debut film ‘Phool Aur Kaante’ (1991). Ayushmann recreated the iconic pose from the 1991 film ‘Phool Aur Kaante’.
In the picture which Ayushmann shared, we see him standing with each leg on two taxis. Ayushmann captioned the picture, “G Action Hero ko naye Action Hero ka salaam. Kaafi phool aur kaanton se guzarna padta hai doston. 🔥 #AnActionHero releasing this Friday.”
‘An Action Hero’ is Ayushmann Khurrana’s third release of the year after ‘Anek’ and ‘Doctor G’. Both ‘Anek’ and ‘Doctor G’ did decent to average business at the box office. Audiences will have to wait and see if ‘An Action Hero’ can make a mark.
In a recent interaction with PTI, Ayushmann had spoken about moving away from the style of films he is known for.
“I need to break (away) from it. I need to get away from taboo subjects and make a film that is more relatable if I aspire for a theatrical release. That’s the evolution or maybe learning I’ve got from the last two years. This film (An Action Hero) is devoid of any messaging as such. It’s just pure thrill, entertainment,” he said.
He added, “I am always looking for something that is different from my image. This fit into the bill not just because it was a really juicy character but it’s a very different film and character for me.”
‘An Action Hero’ also stars Jaideep Ahlawat and releases in theatres on December 2, 2022. Kartik Aaryan and Alaya F starrer ‘Freddy’ will also release on December 2 on Disney+Hotstar.
