Actor Anupam Kher, in an interview with Mumbai Mirror, spoke about actors who look down upon Oscars. The 62-year-old admitted that he is proud of Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Irrfan Khan, Anil Kapoor and Suraj Sharma for having done “brilliant work internationally.”
Kher said that late actor Om Puri had been the flag-bearer when it came to being a successful actor internationally. “People who discourage other actors who are making a mark in Hollywood by asking them why they are hankering after it, are basically lying,” he added.
Anupam Kher added that the same people would even give their right arm to be a part of the crowd at the Oscars or even a Hollywood film. “Every art house actor is dying to work in out-and-out commercial films, every actor wants to work with a superstar. Similarly, all those Indian actors who look down upon the Oscars and say that they are not important, are basically lying,” he quipped.
Meanwhile, Kher is preparing for the release of his next movie, Naam Shabana, which is a spin-off of the 2015 movie, Baby.
