Anupam Kher has had an extraordinarily fulfilling 2007. It looks like 2008 will be another whopper for the versatile actor. He's already shooting for a fascinating new film about the cozy and warm relationship between a man and his granddaughter in Hawai Dada.
"It's directed by another debutant Ajay Kartik. I seem to be working with new very talented directors all the time. In fact, one of my best films this year Wednesday is directed by another debutant Neeraj Pandey. Hawai Dada is another memorable experience," says Anupam. What makes it especially memorable is the fact the veteran actress Tanuja is playing Anupam's wife. "She has always been a favorite. One of our cinema's natural-born actresses. Working with Tanuja in Hawai Dada is such a pleasure. She's totally hassle-free and very entertaining on the sets. I had the privilege of working with her sister the legendary Nutan in Subhash Ghai's Karma."
On January 1, Anupam shot the entire day outside Amitabh Bachchan's residence Jalsa for Vikram Razdan's Bhatti Ki Chutti. "I play this big Bachchan fan who just hangs around the Bachchan’s residence to catch a glimpse of the star." Anupam dismisses a report that AB will make an appearance in Bhatti Ki Chutti as premature. "It's too early to say whether he'll appear in the film or not. Even if he doesn't my character of the Hercule Poirot-like detective will continue to be his fan," adds Anupam.
