Veteran actor Anupam Kher will be seen teaming up for the first time with filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar in their soon to release film ‘Indu Sarkar’. However, not many would be aware that the actor and the filmmaker are very good friends and Anupam Kher has been looking out for an opportunity to work with Madhur since a very long time. Finally they are collaborating for ‘Indu Sarkar’. Recently, the filmmaker who is busy promoting his film, revealed that Anupam Kher has not charged a single penny to work in ‘Indu Sarkar’.

While talking about it in an exclusive interview with Business of Cinema, Madhur Bhandarkar has said, “I and Anupam Kher are very good friends… he wanted to work with me since a very long time.. so many times he said on record also that I have been approaching Madhur since last 15 years and he never took me in the film. He always kept asking if I am there in the film or no.. Even for ‘Indu Sarkar’, I told him it’s not a big role but it’s an impactful role. He immediately agreed to do and said he doesn’t want to lose this film. But I told him I don’t have a budget. He said ‘main free mein kar lunga’.” [sic] (Also Read: EXCLUSIVE: Madhur Bhandarkar won’t show ‘Indu Sarkar’ to Congress before release)

“He did for free to be very honest. I am telling you on record he didn’t charge anything. That’s really very sweet of him. He said I want to be a part of this film and when you make a big film, you compensate that money. I am really very very gracious about what he has done,” added the filmmaker. [sic]

Further, Madhur Bhandarkar shared his experience on working with the veteran actor and said, “He is fun on the sets…for the first time, we have worked together and we enjoyed. We gelled very well…my all actress and actors who work with me always vouch for me that I am a fun loving person on the sets. I make serious cinema but behind the scenes, there is a complete laughter riot. There’s complete different side of mine on the sets. My humour, my one-liners, my Madhurism words…its completely different.” [sic]
