Anupam Kher is officially a part of filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri’s next directorial The Vaccine War and has commenced shooting for the film, the veteran actor announced on Monday. The film marks the fourth collaboration between Agnihotri and Kher after movies such as Buddha in a Traffic Jam, The Tashkent Files, and The Kashmir Files. Kher took to Twitter to share the news and posted a photo from the sets of the upcoming movie.
The Legend of Maula Jatt, starring Fawad Khan in the titular role, has turned out to be a huge blockbuster as it became the first Pakistani film to enter the Rs 100 crore club. It was supposed to release in India on December 30 but has been postponed indefinitely due to opposition from several political parties led by Maharashtra Navanirman Sena.
In a recent interview with CNN, the Khoobsurat actor opened up on the possibility of his film releasing in India as he told the portal, “That would be great, obviously. If it were to happen, it’s a great way to handshake. It is kind of like those sweets and delights we send across to one another on Eid and Diwali. Films and music is that kind of exchange. But things are a bit heated still, let’s see.
