In a Twitter chat, a fan asked the 60-year-old actor if he had any plans of following the footsteps of his politician wife Kirron Kher's footsteps in the near future. Mr Kher tweeted: Not at all. I am happy to be an actor and teacher and a Motivational Speaker
It's been battlefield Twitter this entire week with a furious debate over actor Aamir Khan's comments on 'intolerance.' Voices in favour of Aamir included Shirish Kunder who put out a tweet three days ago, aimed at Anupam Kher. Mr Kher responded with a barb of his own
Mr Kher wrote on Twitter: Dear Aamir Khan. When did Incredible India become Intolerant India for you? Only in the last 7-8 months? Presumed country has become #Intolerant. Wat do u suggest 2 millions of Indians? Leave India? Or wait till regime changes?
Aamir wrote on Twitter: Happy Diwali Salman! Wishing Sooraj, Sonam and you your biggest success ever! Love. a. Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, which stars Salman Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Anupam Kher and Swara Bhaskar opens on Thursday. Aamir will next be seen on the silver screen in Dangal
"The filmmakers and documentary makers must make an attempt to talk to the prime minister and should not wait for the government to contact them. We have to express our anguish but nothing should come between us and the integrity of the nation," said Anupam Kher
"Nobody has the right to call our country intolerant. We are secular people and don't believe in selective outrage," Anupam Kher said on Saturday morning. The actor claims that the debate on 'intolerance' is an attempt to malign the image of the country and is intended to target the Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre
When asked whether he was supporting Shah Rukh, Sonu tweeted: SRK is the most grounded and generous actor I have come across who speaks from his heart. Earlier, actor Anupam Kher had come out in SRK's support after BJP MP Yogi Adityanath likened him to Pakistani terrorist Hafiz Saeed following his comment on growing intolerance in India
The decision of a varied group of filmmakers, authors and poets to return government-granted awards as a form of protest has left opinion divided and India's film fraternity fractured. Supriya Pathank asked: "Are we gaining anything from that? Have you been able to make a point that something has changed? Whom are we pressurising by this?"
Actor Shah Rukh Khan has received support from several quarters of Bollywood after being called a 'Pakistani agent' and compared to 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed by BJP leaders Kailash Vijayvargiya, Sadhvi Prachi and Yogi Adityanath. Anupam Kher said that Shah Rukh is a "National icon"
Mr Bhandarkar, a National Award-winning filmmaker, wrote: that returning an award was 'not only an insult to the honour' but to 'one's craft' as well. In my view, giving away the National Award is a disrespect to oneself and also to the actors, technicians, audience, jury members, and Hon. President
Mr Kher, whose wife Kirron Kher is the BJP MP from Chandigarh, accused the 'Award Wapsi Gang' of being politically motivated. He also blamed them for having had him ousted as Censor Board chief in 2004 by Manmohan Singh's UPA government
Anupam Kher wrote on Twitter: Shot for Neeraj Pandey's biopic on MS Dhoni. As usual a great start. Had to cut my moustache for the role after many years. Sushant Singh Rajput, who plays the titular role in the biopic, had earlier expressed his admiration for the actor on Twitter
