Actor Anupam Kher’s short film titled ‘I Went Shopping for Robert De Niro’ will have a world premiere at IIFA on the 2nd day of the Videocon D2H IIFA Weekend at Tampa Bay, Florida.
Through the film, the veteran actor has paid tribute to iconic Hollywood star Robert De Niro. The duo co-starred in the Oscar-nominated flick, ‘Silver Linings Playbook’.
The film’s writer and lead actress, Shivangi Kshirsagar, who actually did go shopping for Robert De Niro describes the film as wild, feminine, and brazen. She portrays the role of the girl who goes shopping for De Niro in the short-film.
Speaking about the film, Anupam Kher says, “The film has had an exciting journey which came a sort of full circle for us on 10th November, 2013, when Mr De Niro visited our (acting) school and met the team. It was a very special occasion and I invited some prominent actors and directors from the Indian film industry to meet him.”
Anupam Kher has been a part of many Hindi-cinema classics, including ‘A Wednesday’, ‘Lamhe’, ‘Khosla Ka Ghosla’, ‘Special 26’ and ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ among others.
