We have young writers writing stories for people who are above 60. Fantastic things are happening. I did a film recently called The Signature, it is a love story made by a Marathi director Gajendra. I have signed one-two more films. There’s a film I have done with Vidyut Jammwal. Then there’s Satish Kaushik’s Kaagaz 2, and Emergency. I am challenging myself in different ways.”
Meanwhile, Anupam Kher will soon also be seen in Kangana Ranaut’s Emergency. In the film, he will be seen playing the role of political leader Jayaprakash Narayan. Emergency will hit theatres on November 24 this year. Besides this, Kher will also be seen in Vivek Agnihotri’s The Vaccine War and Anurag Basu’s Metro In Dino.
