New Delhi: Actor Divyendu Sharma says it is a privilege to work with Anupam Kher, who is playing his on screen father in the upcoming film 'Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami'.
The 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama' star has teamed up with Kher for the second time after 'Chashme Baddoor'. "It's always a pleasure to work with Anupam Kher. In fact, it's a treat to share screen space with him. He's a very spontaneous and cooperative co-actor. It's always very organic when you are acting with him," Divyendu said.
'Ekkees Toppon ki Salaami', releasing on October 10, is about a son's journey of getting recognition for his father in the society. In the Ravindra Gautam-directed film, they would be seen having conflicting views about life.
"The father and son both have very different point of views. He has his own reasons and his father has his own reasons to not to like each other. My character realises his father's worth only after his death," Divyendu said.
Divyendu started his career with bromance 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama' and then he starred in David Dhawan's buddy comedy 'Chashme Baddoor'. The two film old actor says it's a conscious decision to star in 'Ekkees Toppon ki Salaami' to breakfree of his previous image.
"The basic idea for every actor is to keep doing something new as no one wants to be stuck to one genre. I wanted to show people the other side of me as an actor. 'Ekkees Topon Ki Salami' was just the right blend of things for me," he said.
The Delhi-born actor, who started his career as a theatre artiste, is happy to have made a mark for himself in Bollywood. "It's difficult because when you come to Bombay, you don't know what to do and whom to meet... But after two years, you start understanding the structure. I feel after your first film it's only your merit which speaks. If you have something in you, people will like you and offer work," he said.
The actor would be seen in thriller 'Zaalim Dill' next, where he will be working with Jackie Shroff.
