Anupam Kher hosts Saaransh premiere after 25 years of release


MUMBAI: Actor Anupam Kher hosted the premiere of his first film as an actor Saaransh at BIG Cinemas Metro.

Saaransh completed 25 years on 24 May and was released in Metro theatre, which has now been re-branded as Metro BIG Cinemas. Kher relived this moment with his co-stars from the film Rohini Hattangadi and Soni Razdan and director Mahesh Bhatt, who were also present at the premiere.

Kher says, "On 25 May, 1984 my first film Saaransh released. I was a new comer. Now, 25 years later, I still feel like a new comer. To celebrate my highs and lows of these years, I thought it would be great to relive the moments and the audience reaction for my first film Saaransh. In 1984, the film released in Metro, so we thought it would be nice to premiere it here only."

Saaransh was edited by David Dhawan. Back then, the film’s premiere could not be organized due to unforeseen circumstances. The film was India’s official entry to the Oscars in 1984.
