BOLLYWOOD actor Anupam Kher, whose career has spanned over three decades and more than 500 films, says playing former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has been the most difficult role for him yet.
Kher spoke to the media on the sidelines of the Master Deenanath Mangeshkar Smruti Pratishthan Awards 2018 held in Mumbai.
Asked whether he has completed shooting of the film The Accidental Prime Minister, Kher said: “No… Only 40 per cent of the film shoot has been completed. I have studied the character of Manmohan for four months and it is the most difficult role that I have done. I hope the audience will see his journey on-screen really soon.
A video of Anupam Kher in the midst of the film’s shoot was met with praise for how well the actor has moulded his walk and demeanour to match Singh’s distinct style.
At the awards ceremony, Kher received a special honour for his contribution to Indian theatre and cinema.
