‘With failure, you learn a lot of things'
GLOBAL MOVIE MAGAZINE|December 2020
‘Nothing will fall into anybody’s lap for free.’ ‘There is a lot of competition out there, there are a lot of people to take your place.’ ‘It’s never easy.’

After wowing everyone with his performance in Aarya, Sikander Kher returns as a gangster in the crime thriller, Mum Bhai.HE HAS ENJOYED WORKING FOR IT, AND HE ESPECIALLY LOVES HIS CHARACTER RAMA SHETTY’S LOOK.

We have already seen many films on faceoffs between gangsters and encounter specialists. How is Mum Bhai different?

These kinds of stories are interesting.

The public enjoys them, but it really boils down to how the story is being told.

When I read the script, I was entertained.

Every story has got its own individual flavour.

Long hair, a beard and a lungi makes you look very rugged.

It’s a really good look.

It’s a kickass look.

When I saw the first look test, I quite liked it.

Suman Guha, the person who has done the costumes, and the people who have worked on the look... the long hair, beard and lungi is just fantastic.

I loved the way Rama’s look has shaped up.

Ekta Kapoor really knows what she is doing.

She is on the top of her game.

You and Angad Bedi made quite a boy gang on the sets?

He has been a dear friend of mine from many, many, years and he is a really awesome co-star.

He is extremely supportive and secure.

We had long hours of shoot, we shot in far away places and I think if it wasn’t for him, it would have been tougher.

He has made the ride a lot easier and fun.

You seem to have an ideal father-son relationship with Anupam Kher. Do you also have difference of opinions?

Yes, of course, we do.

It’s just normal and healthy.

If we didn’t have a difference of opinion, something would have been wrong in the relationship.

He is very cool. In fact, he is like a friend.

Over the years, as you grow older, you start respecting each other as human beings, more than just a relationship.

I could discuss anything with my parents, openly, from a very young age.

Both are extremely liberal.

I am lucky to have parents like that because that has made me the man I am today.
