Anupam Kher will be flying to Los Angeles this month. He will be meeting with his new friend the Californication star Rob Lowe.
The two shot recently together in Canada for a film called Breakaway which launches Akshay Kumar‘s best friend and business partner Ajay Virmani‘s son Vinay.
Anupam and Rob hit it off instantly. While the rest of unit bonded amongst themselves, the two of them were constantly huddled together between shots. Apparently, Rob poured his heart out to Anupam about everything including his sex-tape controversies. They also discussed ways to bring Bollywood into American cinema. Anupam who is no stranger to international films, has apparently suggested a collaborative venture with Rob Lowe.
Says Anupam, “I’m certainly not going to share what Rob and I spoke about with you. But yes, we did a form a pretty solid bonding during Breakaway. Rob is a really good guy and a great conversationalist.”
This week they bonded on Twitter in ways that melted Anupam’s heart.
Says Anupam, “Rob has appeared on the cover of the new edition of Vanity Fair magazine. I tweeted him to congratulate him. He tweeted back saying, ‘You are a Hero of an actor for me.’ It was such a heart-warming thing to say, coming from one actor to another.”
Anupam earlier formed a strong bonding with filmmakers Ang Lee and Woody Allen while working with them in Lust, Caution and You’ll Meet A Tall Dark Stranger respectively.
“But it wasn’t like Rob,” confesses Anupam. “We’ve become partners in an ongoing interaction. We share views on everything from cinema to life to life in the cinema.”
And here’s what Anupam is longing to keep a secret. This month when he meets up with Rob Lowe again, Anupam will offer him a film that Anupam will produce where the two will star together.
