PTI reveals that in an interview with them, Anupam Kher has stated that he will not retire. In the context he has said, “You have to be excited about your work. The day you carry the burden of ‘veteran’, ‘legend’, ‘thespian’ (it wouldn’t work). You’re given these titles to signal it’s time to retire. But I won’t retire from work even in the next 50 years.”
Furthermore he added, “Everyday when I go to work, I tell myself I don’t know anything about acting. That’s the only way. If we take pride in our knowledge, we won’t learn something new.”
Esha Gupta who has completed 7 years in the Indian Film Industry told IANS, “Anupam Kher Sir is my guru because I have done my acting training from his school Actor Prepares. We all know that he is a delight as an actor, but he is also a great teacher”.
Currently, Anupam Kher is working in his upcoming, “One Day: Justice Delivered” alongside Esha Gupta that is slated to release on 14th of June 2019. The actress commented, “I am so happy that I got a chance to work with him. When it comes to this film ‘One Day’, life has taken a full circle because I am acting opposite my guru… It is so amazing to see how even after so many films and that huge body of work, he surrenders to the director and constantly talks on how to do a scene differently. Yes, it is indeed very special.”
