It is said that there are no permanent friends or enemies in the entertainment industry. The best of friends can turn your back on you in no time. But one friendship that has stood the test of time is that of Anil Kapoor and Anupam Kher. The duo has acted in several films together, including hits like Ram Lakhan, Karma and Lamhe, share a bond that is more personal than professional. And Anupam Kher has once again proved his loyalty to Anil by agreeing to star in 24.
Anil was initially wary of asking his friend to play an important role in the show, as Anupam Kher has not acted in a television show before. To Anil’s surprise, Anupam Kher not only agreed to play the part almost immediately, but also came on the sets directly from the airport after his Oscar appearance.
Anupam Kher is playing a very important character in the show 24, and it is for this very reason that Anil Kapoor wanted a senior actor for the role. And with Anupam Kher agreeing to be a part of the cast, Anil is assured of not only a first rate performance, but also the enhanced credibility that comes from having an international star be a part of the show.
So after the casting of young actors like Adhir Bhatt, Rahul Singh and Pooja Ruparel, Anupam Kher joins the list as the senior most actor on the show. We’re sure the cast will have a lot to learn from him!
