The most anticipated film based on terrorism, “Baby” released today across the country. Actor Anupam Kher shared his view saying that the release of the film couldn’t have been better timed. The veteran actor also praised Akshay Kumar’s performance saying it is his life’s best work.
As Republic Day is nearing and US President Barack Obama is visiting India to visit PM Narendra Modi, regarding matters including that of terrorism itself, Anupam Kher thinks it was in best interest to release the film at this time.
“Baby‘ is releasing at a perfect time as it’s Republic Day and US President Barack Obama is visiting India to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi-ji to talk about (things including) terrorism. ‘Baby‘ is also awakening people about the same issue, and talks about how we can all deal with this big issue together” says the 59-year-old actor.
Talking about his co-star Akshay, he said, “‘Baby’ is Akshay’s life’s best performance. I don’t think anybody could have played the lead better than him. He is improving with every film. It’s an international level performance by him.”
Talking about Neeraj Pandey, the director of “Baby” with whom Anupam Kher has collaborated in the past for “A Wednesday” and “Special 26”, he stated, “He (Neeraj Pandey) comes up with the most amazing themes and his own stamp of brilliance. So whether it was ‘A Wednesday‘ and ‘Special 26‘, both the characters were very different.”
“Baby is about the unknown faces of so many undercover agents, who play a very important role in unification of the country” says Anupam Kher. “Similarly, my role as Om Prakash Shukla in ‘Baby‘ is very meaty and an exciting role of an undercover agent.”
The actor further added his experience working with Neeraj Pandey as ‘always very special’.
