Ankush was asked about his love for dance and the dance form that he would love to explore in his next projects. He smiled and said “Dance is my passion. Whenever I look forward to sign a film, I always enquire whether I am getting an opportunity to dance. I prefer dance over action sequences. I would love to explore hip hop dance form a bit more in films as I feel I can do it well.”


On being asked about his view on the soap CID, he revealed that CID is one of his favorite television shows. He said that he is really thrilled and excited to work with the team of CID in the shoot. “I love the way the team of CID investigates the cases.”


When asked about his plans for Durga Puja, Ankush said “In this year the feeling is different as my film is releasing. So I will be busy promoting my film. On the auspicious day of Ashtami, I will be heading towards my hometown Bardhaman to celebrate the rest of the days with family and close buddies. Last year I missed the Puja as I was in Bangkok for a shoot. So I want to make up for the fun I missed last year. Hope my film does well and my enjoyment with Durga Puja will be really special then.”


While having a candid chat with Nusrat Jahan, she revealed that she is playing the character of Pooja in ‘Khiladi’. She belongs to a conservative family. Her character Pooja is very naughty and she loves to play pranks on everybody.


About the CID series she told “I love this show. Perhaps this is the only television show that I am seeing for last ten years. I love the way the investigations are shown. If I get an opportunity to play a character in CID, I would love to do it.”


She was also asked about her interest to work in Bollywood projects, she revealed that “In Bollywood the term explore means exploit. I got an offer from a big house and that too with a big superstar. But I felt something fishy in that and I moved away from it.” She also revealed that she would love to do films where she can wear the beautiful sarees and can do romance on the snow covered regions of Switzerland.


Khiladi that released on 11th October is a full on masala entertainer entertaining the audience during Durga Puja.
