Bollywood actor Anupam Kher, who is gearing up for his 512th film Baa Baa Black Sheep, has said he feels it is just the beginning for him, and that he competes with performers of the current generation.
Anupam, along with Maniesh Paul and Mika Singh, was shooting a club song for Baa Baa Black Sheep. Anupam said, “This is my 35th year in the film industry and this is my 512th film. My competition is not with my age actors. I have competition with Varun Dhawan and Manish Paul. I think when you don’t have the fear of failure, you experiment a lot more. I don’t want people to call me a legend or thespian. When people call you a thespian, it is your time to pack your bags. I think it’s just the beginning for me.”
He said shooting for Baa Baa Black Sheep has been an enjoyable experience. “I am very happy that Mika Singh has lent his voice to our film. Maniesh Paul is brilliant in the film and this is a hilarious film. I really had great time shooting for this film and I hope people will have fun when they watch it.”
Anupam lost 15 kg in the recent past. On his transformation, he said: “I had never lost weight earlier, but for this film I saw that possibility because it’s double-edged role. One of it is an old comedian father but later Maniesh’s character realises that he is a contract killer. So I feel that to look visually different, I had to shed some weight… So now, I feel it has worked out very well.”
Baa Baa Black Sheep is the story of an honest common man (Anupam) and his son (Maniesh).
Releasing on March 9, it is directed by Vishwas Paandya and produced by Anand Swarup Agarwal and Krishna Datla.
