'Controversy and Anupam Kher go hand in hand' sounds absolutely vague and ambiguous as compared to the statement 'Controversy and Hitler go hand in hand'. Well, if you are wondering about the link between the Bollywood actor and the dictator, well, think no further as the fact is that Anupam Kher has been signed up to star in a film called Dear Friend Hitler. The film being directed by the debutante Rakesh Ranjan, will also Neha Dhupia as Eva Braun.
Well, no sooner the film was announced, it started making headlines, for all the wrong reasons. It got bad press from renowned international newspapers like Dawn and The Guardian, stating that the film is aimed at glorifying Hitler. Speaking exclusively to Bollywood Hungama, Anupam Kher said, "According to me, Hitler is a controversial figure and it suits the western media. What I find ironical is the fact that how can someone pass any judgment on the film even without seeing the film or knowing the script. Let me clarify that this film is about the downfall of Hitler and nothing else. They can make anything which they want to make. Somebody has tweeted me saying that two French newspapers have written this as a main story of their editions."
One just hopes that the controversy gets settled as soon as possible, as we are sure that the audiences all over are dying to see the cut-throat and cut-moustache Hitler, courtesy Anupam Kher!
