Anupam Kher is on a new high. Looking seriously at his global
prospects, Anupam has accepted a pivotal role in producer Ashok
Amritraj's The Other End Of The Line, a love story featuring an
Indian girl working in a call center in Mumbai (yet to be
finalized) who travels all the way to San Francisco to be with her
American love-interest (Jesse Matcalfe).
"I met Ashok Amritraj some three years ago and was stuck by his
global vision of cinema," recounts Anupam whose next release is
Pradeep Sarkar's Laga Chunari Mein Daag. "When he narrated this
script about a cross-cultural love story I was completed taken up
by it. I wanted to be part of it."
Anupam who plays the female actor"s father says he has a
sizeable role. "If you remember I had played Parminder Nagra's
father in Gurinder Chadha's Bend It like Beckham. That was my first
big international film. The Other End of the Line will be shot in
Mumbai and partly in San Francisco."
