Veteran Bollywood actor Anupam Kher has three films releasing this weekend – Pankaj Kapur’s Mausam, Akshay Kumar’s Speedy Singhs and his own production, Havai Dada. While the former two films will hit theatres on 23rd September, Havai Dada will see a world premiere on 25th September on TV channel UTV Movies.
Set in a small village of India, Havai Dada revolves around the loving relationship between a grandfather (played by Anupam Kher) and his granddaughter. The grandfather has never travelled by airplane and it’s his granddaughter who tries to fulfill his childhood dream. The movie deals with the circumstances and situations the little girl faces to fulfill Havai Dada’s wish which in turn becomes her dream.
Speaking on the sidelines of a special screening of the film, Anupam Kher told Koimoi.com that he relished doing both commercial as well as realistic cinema. “Having done over 400 films as an actor, my aim is to always do a role that challenges me as an actor.” Kher added that he loved the idea of Havai Dada so much that he decided to produce it under his home banner, Karolbagh Films.
Besides Kher, Havai Dada also stars veteran actress Tanuja, who plays the role of Anupam Kher’s wife in the film. Oscar award winner Resul Pookutty has lent his expertise as the sound designer for the film.
You can catch Anupam Kher in Havai Dada on 25th September at 4pm IST on UTV Movies.
