The ace actor Anupam Kher has lent his voice to the character of Shakuni mama for the upcoming animated movie “Mahabharat’.

Jayanti Lal Gada’s animated film; Mahabharat has big names from Bollywood lending their voices to the characters.

The characters in the movie have been designed to match the personality and attributes of the Bollywood names doing the voice over so that there is co-ordination between what the audience will see and hear.

Shakuni who is believed to be an extremely intelligent but devious man is characterized for rubbing dice in his hands often.

Shakuni is perhaps best known for masterminding the infamous Game of Dice and hence Anupam Kher kept roaming with dice for a month before he started dubbing to get used to it.

A master of sorcery, it is said the dice used by Shakuni’s were made from his father’s thigh bones and hence generated any desired number and so even while he was dubbing he kept using the dice.

The movie is an attempt to allow children to be up to date with their holy scriptures and at the same time make the movie an enjoyable and pleasant experience.
Spokesperson says, ‘Anupam requested the makers of the movie to use the original sound of the dice generated during the dubbing of his character and not to create a sound mix of the same’.

I WENT SHOPPING FOR ROBERT DE NIRO –
ANUPAM KHER’S NEXT DIRECTORIAL

Anupam Kher announces his next directorial venture; I Went Shopping For Robert De Niro, a 29 minute short film, in honour of his Oscar Nominated Silver Linings Playbook co star. He has also produced the film under his banner Actor Prepares Mumbai, named after his acting school.

“I have been wanting to direct a film for the past one year. When I came back from the USA after completing Silver Lining’s Playbook, Yamini, the writer of the short film, narrated the concept to me and I thought it is a wonderful story and I wanted to tell it. I decided to direct and produce it.” says Kher who is currently riding high on the success of Special 26.

Everyone from the cast and crew is a huge fan of Robert De Niro and has worked with gritty passion to pay their respects to the star. I went Shopping for Robert De Niro is a story of two girls at the crossroads of their lives and what happens to them on that particular day when they go shopping for Robert De Niro. Yamini Kshirsagar and Rimal Arora play the lead roles in the film.

They are also the girls who actually went shopping for the gift for De Niro before Kher travelled to Philadelphia for the shooting of Silver Linings Playbook, making the film part autobiography and part fiction.

Anupam Kher says, “With this film we tell the story of millions of people who come to the city of Mumbai to fulfil their dreams. It reminded me of the days of my life when I shifted to Mumbai to pursue my career as an actor. Similarly Silver Linings Playbook reminded me of the excitement I experienced when I signed my first film ever and I went shopping for Robert De Niro reminded me of my first days in Mumbai.

Nostalgia drove me to be a part of both these stories. In one sense going to celebrate Silver Linings Playbook at the Oscars brings this entire journey as full circle for me as being a part of the project gave birth to the short film”
