Actor Anupam Kher is not someone who shies away from speaking his mind. The actor, in a recent chat, got candid about content-driven films taking the spotlight at the recent Cannes Film Festival. For the unversed, filmmaker Payal Kapadia was honoured at the festival’s closing ceremony with the Grand Prix award – the second-highest prize of the festival, for her film, All We Imagine As Light.

Aside from her, actress Anasuya Sengupta was bestowed the ‘Un Certain Regard’ Best Actress award for her performance in The Shameless.  Sandhya Suri’s cop drama Santosh starring Shahana Goswami, and Bulgarian director Konstantin Bojanov’s The Shameless were part of the competition.  During a recent interaction with News18 Showsha, Anupam Kher got candid about how ‘unknown’ people are now getting recognition on international platforms.

While interacting with the publication, Anupam Kher got candid about All We Imagine As Light winning the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival 2024 as well as Kiran Rao’s Laapata Ladies and Diljit Dosanjh’s Chamkila receiving praises for their storytelling and performances. The veteran actor said, “Content is very important nowadays. It always was, but now the audience is different. Look at what happened at Cannes – we have two unknown people (filmmaker Payal Kapadia and actor Anasuya Sengupta) getting the highest honours. It’s phenomenal.”

Anupam on Nancy Tyagi

The actor also spoke about Delhi-based fashion influencer Nancy Tyagi creating a storm on the international red carpet. Anupam said, “A Delhi girl walked on the red carpet stitching her own dress. The world is open to creativity – it always was, but now India is open to creativity. What doesn’t touch the heart, doesn’t make an impact. You cannot dwarf the audience by making them feel smaller. They’re open to malls, they’re open to modern India, and big cinema – they are used to everything.”

He continued, “You can’t now say, ‘Dekho hum apko Switzerland leke jaa rahe hai.’ Unke liye koi bahut badi baat nahi hai. Par content agar achha hua toh choti film bhi chalegi aur badi bhi. (It’s not a big thing to say ‘Look, we are taking you to Switzerland’. If a small film is good, even it can work). I think it’s the end of fakeness.”
