The story is about a Bihari Boy from Begusarai, and his struggle with love and politics in Delhi University, 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."
Anshuman also shared why he didn't take up fresh work after wrapping "Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele".
He said: "This has been a hard year for me owing to my mother's health, and therefore I did not taken up 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 "What A Loser" adaptatioon will mark the directorial debut of novelist Pankaj Dubey.
