Anupam Kher is a veteran in the film industry and has appeared in several international projects as well and was recently seen in the critically acclaimed movie The Kashmir Files. Kher recently took a dig at big Bollywood banners like Dharma, Yash Raj Films and Sajid Nadiadwala and said that he has been missing from mainstream Bollywood because these big banners don’t offer him roles anymore. The actor said he had done films with all these banners he was their darling, but don’t know what happened now.
In an interview with Times Now Navbharat, Anupam Kher said, “I am not a part of mainstream cinema in India today. I am not. I am not doing any Karan Johar film, I am not doing any Sajid Nadiadwala film, I am not doing any Aditya Chopra film because the offers have not come. I was a darling of all these people. I have done everybody’s films. But I am not blaming them for not casting me anymore. But because they were not casting me in their films, I found a path where I did a Tamil film called Connect, I did a Telugu film called Tiger Nageswara Rao. I have also done Sooraj Barjatya’s Uunchai.”
He further explained that he did feel bad but he was rediscovering himself as an actor, he said, “Otherwise I could’ve have sat down & said, ‘Arey yaar mere dost aur mere jo itne kareebi they ek zamaane mein, mujhe ab lete nahin hain filmon mein toh main ab kya karoon main toh barbaad ho gaya.’ Of course mujhe takleef hoti hai, dukh hota hai ki kyun nahin lete bhai main toh inki sab filmon mein kaam karta tha. But, it’s not a complaint & neither am I holding it against them. I am just saying that sometimes when one door shuts, so many other windows & doors open. I am rediscovering myself as an actor.”
