Noted actor Anupam Kher’s short film ‘I Went Shopping for Robert De Niro’ will be premiered at the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards in Florida, US.
Titled ‘I Went Shopping for Robert De Niro’, the film will have a world premiere on the second day of the IIFA awards to be held at Tampa Bay from April 23-26.
“Having the World Premiere at IIFA showcases in essence the spirit of the short film, where a group of Indian artists pay tribute to the American legend, as India celebrates the centenary of Indian Cinema this year,” said Anupam Kher, who is sharing his craft through the acting workshop at the awards.
Through this film, Anupam Kher has paid tribute to the iconic Hollywood actor and co-star from the Oscar nominated film ‘Silver Linings Playbook’.
“The film has had an exciting journey which came full circle for us on November 10, 2013, when Mr De Niro visited our (acting) school. I had invited prominent actors, directors from the Indian film industry to meet him. Some of our biggest stars sat around him and he answered questions about his work, scripts, co-actors, films, associations with filmmakers, etc,” Kher said.
