Mumbai: Director Sanjay Gupta and prolific actor Anupam Kher are all set to work together after 19 years.
Anupam turned out to be an ideal choice for a pivotal role in Aishwarya Rai's comeback film ‘Jazbaa’, which Gupta is going to direct from January 2015.
"It's a role only Anupam can play. I had worked with him 19 years ago in the second film of my career, 'Ram Shastra'. After that, there was no solid opportunity to direct Anupam. So, I am really looking forward to working with him again," Gupta said.
Incidentally, it was ‘Woodstock Villa’, co-produced by Gupta and Ekta Kapoor, which launched Anupam's son Sikandar in the film industry.
