The Indian Detective looks like is a cross between comedy and suspense and with Russell Peters and Anupam Kher, we can at least expect tonnes of fun and entertainment.
Looks like Vidya Balan’s Tumhari Sulu has won everybody’s hearts, from Ayushmann Khurrana and Anupam Kher to Shilpa Shetty. Here’s what they said.
Anupam Kher said, “People who want to make it (big), don’t need to go through (casting couch). I don’t know whether it exists in the film industry, but there are decent people here. Only a small section does this”
“I’m the biggest example of being a common man and still having made it (in the film industry). After being a gold medallist from drama school, was it easy for me to come to the city of Mumbai and roam around for three years? Why should life be easier for anyone?”
Anupam Kher joined the National Anthem debate. The actor who is known for speaking his mind said if people can wait outside restaurants and theatres, why is it so much of a problem to stand for 52 seconds. Cricketer Gautam Gambhir has also shared a similar point of view on Twitter.
“People never complain about standing in serpentine queues at hotels, ticket counters or any other place. But, they cannot spare 52 seconds to the tune of national anthem in respect of their country.”
Bollywood actor Anupam Kher added that he takes owning Actor Prepares Institute as a matter of pride and believes his experience as a teacher of the school will come handy during his tenure at FTII. Information and Broadcasting Minister, Smriti Irani had no qualms that he owns acting schools.
Anupam Kher feels veteran actor Dharmendra is the “most charmingly genuine person” he has ever met. “It was wonderful to meet everybody’s favourite Dharamji at an event in Kolkata. He is the most charmingly genuine person I have met,” Anupam captioned the shared photographs of himself along with Dharmendra.
Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) Chairperson Anupam Kher shared a note by the students of FTII, which read: “Thank you so much for your cooperation and active involvement addressing our concerns. Looking forward to work together towards the betterment of this premier institute. Thank you.”
Bollywood actor Anupam Kher, who recently visited Film and Television Institute of India in Pune, says that he interacted with the students not from a position of authority but in a friendly manner that disarmed them.
Unlike his predecessor Gajendra Chauhan, Anupam Kher did not meet with any resistance when he visited the campus. He also had a small interaction with students of 2016 batch who are protesting over academic issues.
Unlike his predecessor Gajendra Chauhan, no one can point a finger at Anupam Kher’s credentials. But before expressing relief or congratulating Smriti Irani for making the right choice, we should also ask who the other FTII Society members are and why their names haven’t been made public.
The letter, signed by FTII Students Association (FSA) president Robin Joy and general secretary Rohit Kumar, read, “We sincerely believe the short-term courses being run (by FTII) can’t impart knowledge on filmmaking in such a short duration.”
Ranchi Diaries movie review: Sattwik Mohanty’s directorial comes off as a random assemblage of scenes– in forests (that’s where the ‘Naxals’ live), a large mansion (that’s where the bad guy stays), police chowkis, and a crumbling building which is meant to house a bank.
The FTII students have written an open letter to Anupam Kher who has been recently appointed as the chairperson of the esteemed government institute. He was asked about the letter when he arrived for the opening ceremony of Jio MAMI 19th Mumbai Film Festival on Thursday night.
