Bollywood star Ayushmann Khurrana has once again collaborated with filmmaker Anubhav Sinha in the upcoming film Anek. We can see his slit eyebrow in the first look stills which has generated widespread interest among his fans. The actor says that the idea was to create a distinct look.
While opening about his character Joshua in the movie, he said
“I have been fortunate to collaborate with filmmakers who encourage me to add my creative inputs to their vision of storytelling. The eyebrow slit I am sporting in Anek was an idea I discussed with Anubhav sir. It was about creating a distinct look that the audience has never seen me in, and I am glad that people have noticed and are discussing it.”
Ayushmann is also known to be Bollywood`s Mr. Disruptor for the unconventional roles he plays. He said that he has found support within the industry which motivate him to take risks while portraying unusual roles.

“I have always been an eager artist who wants to contribute towards building my characters and how it will look on screen,” Ayushmann noted, adding: “I always make these mental notes and discuss them.”
To make a point, he falls back on recent instances and says this while recalling:
“In Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, for instance, my character wears a nose ring. I had bounced this idea off (director) Hitesh (Kewalya) and (producer) Anand Rai sir. I am glad they took this input. Similarly, Shoojit (Sircar) sir was happy with the idea that I would have a lisp in Gulabo Sitabo.”
Ayushmann Khuranna likes to be an “active voice” when he teams up with someone.
“(I love) Discussing everything under the sun about my character and the film. I feel invested if I openly speak my mind and thankfully I have always had filmmakers who have appreciated what I bring to the table”.
