Recently, Ayushmann Khurrana’s ‘An Action Hero’ was released on Netflix this week. And, everyone is wondering– why it bombed at the box office despite being such a great movie. Anirudh Iyer-directed action-comedy thriller received a lot of positive reviews on December 2. But, even though the movie received such great reviews, it failed to perform well at the box office.
Ayushmann Khurrana’s ‘An Action Hero Movie Plot
‘An Action Hero’ revolves around a popular actor Maanav, who is famous for playing hero in action movies. The movie is about how a murder accusation turns Maanav’s life into an action thriller as he flees the country, with a vengeful politician hot on his heels.
With talented cast of Ayushmann Khurrana and Jaideep Ahlawat, this movie is a hard-hitting entertainer. And, despite being a box-office failure, this movie left the netizens very impressed.

I just finished watching #AnActionHero on Netflix. Super 🆒 movie. It’s something that not only @ayushmannk but Bollywood hasn’t done before! Highly recommended for cinema lovers! Thank you Anirudh Iyer for making this. The experience was alluring 😍
Just watched #AnActionHero on #Netflix : • First half – BRILLIANT 🔥🔥 • Second half – Average • Climax – Flat Director utilises the service of Jaideep Ahlawat in best way possible 👍🏼. Ayushmann – Great. Overall good timepass one time watch. Yes, should’ve earned more at BO!
While playing Manav, Khurrana said in an interview “ It is a genre breaker for me. It is different from my staple genre of social-comedy and there is no message in it. There is pure thrill. It is a roller coaster ride,”
He further added, “This film is about an extraordinary man in an ordinary situation. The emotion of revenge is an ordinary thing but if a superstar happens to be in that ordinary situation, how does he deal with it, is what the story is about,”
Jaideep Ahlawat on “An Action Hero”
“You will not be able to say who is a hero or villain. Everyone has their own reason to do things. I never thought of the character as a villain because he has strong reasons behind Ayushmann,” he added.
