Anupam Kher is back in Tamil cinema after a break. The veteran Bollywood actor is playing a crucial role in ‘Mudhalvar Mahatma’, a film directed by Balakrishnan, who made the critically acclaimed ‘Kamarajar’.
The ace artiste, who had earlier acted in Tamil movies like ‘VIP’ and ‘Kutrapathirikai’, is playing the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu in this political satire, which is currently being shot in and around Chennai.
“I was very much impressed by the script of ‘Mudhalvar Mahatma’ when Balakrishnan narrated it to me. So I immediately accepted to be part of the project. It is about Mahatma Gandhi coming back to India”, he says.
“I am open to offers from Tamil cinema”, Anupam Kher says and adds: “I am happy that Kamal Haasan remade ‘A Wednesday’ (in which he played the lead role) in Tamil as ‘Unnaipol Oruvan’. Though I have not watched the film, I was told that it was great”.
