The negative reel of the film Maine Gandhi Ko Nahi Mara and cash amounting to Rs 4.15 lakh were stolen from Bollywood actor Anupam Kher’s office in Andheri. The entire incident was recorded on CCTV cameras installed at the office, revealing that two unknown individuals entered by breaking the main door lock.


The Amboli police have registered an FIR and initiated an investigation into the matter. Police suspect that the accused are professional housebreakers who first breached the safety door and then accessed the main door. The accused escaped in an autorickshaw after the incident.

According to police officials, the complainant is Pravin Patil, who has been Kher’s manager for the last 17 years. A police officer stated, “In Kher’s office, manager Pravin Patil was working alongside other employees Om Parkash Chaubey, Vilas Sangu, Santosh Bhagne, and Lalbabu Mandal. They locked the office door around 9 pm on June 19, and when they returned at 9.36 am on June 20, they found the door broken.”

Upon discovering the break-in, the actor’s employees immediately informed Kher and notified the Amboli police. Speaking to mid-day, Kher said, “This was the first office I bought in my life.” Kher recounted that his staff called him this morning to inform him about the broken door. Kher hoped the thieves are caught and said, “May God give them wisdom.” Since the building is old, proper security measures were not in place.
