Sooraj Barjatya’s next project will apparently feature Anupam Kher in an exciting role
Anupam Kher has disclosed that he will be seen in Sooraj Barjatya’s next film starring Salman Khan. The veteran actor, however, won’t play father figure to any of the lead actors.
Anupam tells hitlist, “As of now, I can only say that I have a very interesting role in the film. I have worked with Sooraj in the past in Hum Aapke Hai Kaun and Vivah and it’s nice to be working with him again after seven years.”
The actor-director duo shares a three-decade-old association. Barjatya was the second unit assistant director to Mahesh Bhatt in Saaransh (1984), which was a big break for Anupam. “I remember asking him to fetch the script from my room,” he reminisces.
Sooraj’s film, which revolves around the lines of young royals, goes on the floors this July. Pre-production work has already begun and the set is being constructed at ND Studio.
The film is likely to be shot over a period of nearly 110 days and 70 per cent of it will be filmed on the sets. Salman, who has a double role in the film, is working with the Barjatyas after 15 years. It is rumoured that Sonam Kapoor would be cast opposite him.
