The actress, who is proud of her Naga roots is excited to make her big bollywood debut in a content driven film helmed by Anubhav Sinha. As a supermodel, her extraordinary yet sharp lineaments have helped her garner attention from major global brands. The actress had commenced her journey into modelling when she was scouted at the age of 15 and since then, the talented Andrea has never looked back.
On Kevichusa and her unprecedented performance in the film, Anek director Anubhav Sinha says “There couldn’t be a better choice for the lead role in Anek than Andrea. Her northeastern roots have added originality to the story. Apart from that, Andrea has lost a lot of sweat for this character. Her tough looks and phenomenal acting has helped her embody the character well” Andrea, who is playing the role of a Boxer named AIDO in ‘Anek’ is said to have a knack as an actress. She will be seen bringing a unique approach to the craft that will be exhibited in the film.”
Talking about her experience of working with Ayushmann and Anubhav Sinha, Andrea says, “When it finally dawned on me that I would be working with talent powerhouses like Anubhav sir and Ayushmann, I was nervous but at the same ecstatic to collaborate on the film. Ayushmann and Anubhav Sir created such a comfortable environment for me on set that I felt no added pressure to over-perform or do anything that was beyond my capabilities- being a newcomer in this field.”
For the first time, Ayushmann Khurrana will be seen essaying the role of an undercover officer while the leading lady Andrea will be seen slipping into the role of an international-level boxing champion named AIDO in ‘Anek’.
Starring Ayushmann Khurrana and Andrea Kevichusa in the lead, ‘Anek’ is jointly produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and Benaras Mediaworks. The film is all set to release only in cinemas, 27th May 2022.
