Anupam Kher next film titled Welcome Back Gandhi revolves around what would happen if Mahatma Gandhi visited India today.
It will also put the spotlight on social and political issues.
The veteran will be playing the role of a politician.
A. Balakrishnan has helmed the movie, and written the screenplay and dialogues as well.
Actor S. Kanagaraj essays the role of Mahatma Gandhi, while Anupam plays a politician who dreams of ushering in honest governance in the country.
The film is scheduled to release on January 30, 2017, the 69th death anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.
He was assassinated in 1948 by Nathuram Godse.
“Given the turbulent times in which we exist, Gandhiji’s ideals of truth, honesty and non-violence assume paradigm relevance today. Though school curriculums, books and documentaries have highlighted with minute details the depth of his philosophy, the question remains how Gandhiji would have dealt with the problems faced by us today,” Balakrishnan said in a statement.
He added: “This query led us to make this movie which I am sure will force us to probe our own ideals and prompt us to discover the Mahatma within ourselves.” – CINEWS
