Anupam Kher plays a blind man in ‘Chhodo Kal Ki Baatein’

Anupam Kher plays a blind man in ‘Chhodo Kal Ki Baatein’

The actor’s first Marathi film, which is also shot in Hindi, will release in April

Essaying the role of a visually challenged person in his Marathi debut, Kashala Udyachi Baat – known as Chhodo Kal Ki Baatein in its Hindi version – wasn’t easy for Anupam Kher, but the veteran actor says he appreciates the real fighters more now. “When you play the role of a physically disabled or differently-abled person, you discover how brilliantly people who are differently-abled live their lives,” the 56-year-old said at the music launch of the film where Anil Kapoor was also present. “We see how people who cannot see, fit themselves so well in the scenario. So, this is a tribute to all the blind. My role is dedicated to all these people,” he added.

Directed by Pramod Joshi and starring Sachin Khedekar and Mrinal Kulkarni in the lead, Chhodo Kal Ki Baatein is slated for release April 12. The actor, who has featured in around 400 films in his three-decade-long career, has no qualms in admitting that he faced hardships during the film’s shooting. “Most of the scenes were very difficult. There were scenes where I had to climb mountains as a blind man, and we have done an entire song that we have shot on a mountain and rivers. It was a little difficult,” said Anupam. The actor was last seen in Desi Boyz, and will soon be seen in Chaar Din Ki Chandni. He is also working on Deepa Mehta’s Midnights’ Children and on the remake of Chashme Buddoor directed by David Dhawan.
