57-year-old bollywood actor Anupam Kher is in full support of Anna Hazare from the begining. He said in a recent interview to a leading daily "The reason why I support the movement is because I feel a warmth for my country. If I don't want corruption at home, how can I support corruption in my country? Most importantly, I feel if you try, you risk failure. If you don't, you ensure it."
Anupan Kher was the one who requested Team Anna to end their fast at Jantar-Mantar day before yesterday.
On asking that Anna's movement is losing out on its steam, his reply was "Anna is not making a TRP-raking serial. If the number of people who go to masjids and gurudwaras go down, do we say that people have stopped praying? So, even if five people are there to support a movement against corruption, it is important for it to move on."
Will he join the politics later, he replied "I am not into politics. But then, one never knows where life might take a person 10 years down the line."
He said that he will love to play Aanna Hazare's character as an actor. On asking If you are offered a biopic on Anna, would you want to essay his role? He said "I would love to do that."
Kher has appeared in nearly 450 films and 100 plays.
