‘Nobody does only great work’
For someone who has been part of the Indian film industry for almost four decades, there must be something he would want to change, but actor Anupam
Kher (right) has accepted himself as a complete artist and has embraced his mistakes too.
“I am a sum total of what I have done in the past. Good or bad. There is nobody in this world that does only great work, whether it’s a painter or a writer or anybody. I think mediocre work is part of brilliant work. Life is 80% monotony and 20% excitement. The job to be done needs to be done well,” says Kher.
Having shown his acting prowess in almost every film genre, the 60-year-old actor has given exemplary characters to the industry, and according to him, anything that is great comes with its own bit of challenges.
“I think all great roles have been challenging. All roles where I had to push my comfort zones have been great. But sometimes, to do things which you as an actor are not convinced about and still have to make the audience believe in, that has been very difficult for me,” says Anupam.
“Overall, I enjoy making people laugh, so I love all my comedy roles. The best thing is to do your job. When you have to do something on stage, you are the king, but in cinema, it’s not like that. The intention of doing a good performance should be there, though I have tried to do my bad performances also with sincerity,” adds the actor.
