Now, speaking to Smita Prakash on ANI’s podcast, Anupam Kher said, “Whenever there’s an issue happening and if I talk my mind out, people think that it’s a political issue. Ideologically I am an Indian and my first interest is India. Now if the present government thinks more about India then automatically I can be associated with them. But, if I wanted to join a political party I would have joined it.”

Anupam Kher emphasised his best interest lies in India and said, “I am India-centric. If people want to confuse that with politics, that is their problem.” In fact, he also opened up on why actors refrain from talking about politics these days and said, “I think actors have a fan base, people base. In today’s time, it can be easily misconstrued. It can easily get into issues. Warna pehle bhi they. There is a certain section of people, Dev Anand Sahab, Vijay Anand Sahab, they supported a particular ideology. They were vocal and saath me kaam hota rehta tha (work existed side by side).”

Besides this, The Kashmir Files actor also discussed his decades-long journey in showbiz, his personal life with his wife, Kirron Kher and how he maintains his health and fitness regime at this age.
