The highly distinguished Anupam Kher is been one busy man these days. The reason? Well, he has been quietly shooting at Adelaide Studios in Australia for the upcoming film Hotel Mumbai, which also happens to be his 501st film as an actor. Kher’s co-star in the film is none other than the renowned international star Jason Isaac. Anupam Kher will be seen playing the role of the well-known chef Hemant Oberoi in Hotel Mumbai which has been based on the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai.
Anupam said that Taj Mahal hotel has been recreated at Adelaide Studios. While he refrained from revealing anything about his character, he clarified that the film was not an autobiographical work, but, it was about the events that unfolded in the nerve wrecking 68 hours at the hotel during the attacks.
Hotel Mumbai is a co- production with Hollywood producers Basil Iwanyk, Gary Hamilton, Mike Gabrawy, Jomon Thomas, Julie Ryan and documentary filmmaker Andrew Ogilvie. Besides Anupam Kher and Jason Isaacs, Hotel Mumbai also stars Armie Hammer, Dev Patel, Tilda Bonaidi, Nazanin Boniadi and Tilda Cobham-Hervey.
