Anupam Kher in Woody Allen’s next

Anupam Kher


In what could be described as a too-good-to-be-true incident, character artist of Bollywood, Anupam Kher has bagged himself an offer to act in a Woody Allen film. This piece of information was confirmed to the actor by his international agent. It is for this film that Freida Pinto has been signed too. Mr. Kher has bagged a role to act as Freida’s dad!

Anupam who is visibly thrilled b the offer from Woody Allen considers this as an opportunity of his lifetime and has said he could not have asked for anything better. The actor who is a hardcore fan of the Hollywood director considers being on the same location with the famed director itself a pride.

This much-hyped Woody Allen’s forth coming venture will have Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins, Antonio Banderas, Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Freida Pinto and now Anupam Kher in the credits. The film which is yet to be titled is preparing to go on floors by July 2009 and will have London as the back drop. The film might hit theatres by 2010.

With many Indian faces making their presence in the international arena felt let us hope the academy awards won’t be too far!
