Mumbai, Oct 2 (IANS) Actor Anshuman Jha will be seen playing the lead role in the film adaptation of author Pankaj Dubey’s book “What a Loser”.

“What a Loser” is about a Bihari boy’s (from Begusarai) struggle for his love of politics in Delhi University (DU) and his IAS dreams.

Excited about the project, Anshuman said : “Every home in Bihar has IAS dreams, even if they are borrowed dreams. Even my mom wanted me to apply for civil services. The book is a bestseller for a reason. And I am grateful that I am getting to be a part of it and play a Bihari.”

Apart from the film, Anshuman also shares why he didn’t take up any work after wrapping up “Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele”.

He said: “This has been a hard year for me with my mother’s health and I had therefore not taken up any work after wrapping ‘Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele’. It also took me some time to get out of the zone mentally as playing a homosexual in ‘Hum Bhi Akele’ had drained me. But this is a film I wish to prep hard… One film at a time is the mantra.”

The film will be directed by the novelist Pankaj himself.
