Anupam-Satish’s Friendship Is Now On Screen



Anupam-Satish’s Friendship Is Now On Screen 12

The Last Show , Vivek Agnihotri’s  new  project with Anupam Kher and Satish Kaushik in  the  lead , is actually based  on the two  actors’ real-life friendship  that  goes back  to  nearly  40 years.

While  The Last Show’s director Vivek Agnihotri  admitted  to  similarities  between the real and reel to me  when  I asked him about it,writer-director Rumi Jaffrey confirms that this film is indeed  based  on the Kher-Kaushik dosti.

Says Rumi, “ In this film industry  of fickle  opportunistic  relationships  some of us  have made life-long friends. I’m very  lucky to have  really good friends  in this  industry. Anupam and Satish have  known each other  for more than forty years. They’ve remained very close friends  through  ups and downs in their own lives. Their close relationship has not seen  any  change  over the years. They remain  close friends beyond their  profession.”

Rumi  thought their friendship would make for a great story. “Vivek Agnihotri  asked me to  write a story based on Anupam and  Satish’s friendship .He gave me very little time to do so, as  he wants to start shooting immediately, I  thought, why not? There is  so much to  learn  from this dosti.”

Rumi  has set his  story  of a timeless friendship in  Bhopal. “This is the  city I was born and brought  up in. Bhopal understands  the  value  of  human relationships.”

Adds Satish Kaushik , “This film is  dedicated to creativity .Anupam and my journey as actors from theatre to cinema is  a shared  experience which  we believe would  have a lot of takeaway  for  the audience.It  will have inspirational anecdotes from our life and friendship . Anupam and me   are dreamers and achievers and spent some great moments of fun , happiness , sadness, excitement together  as friends and the script has  lot of images and experiences   of our  friendship.”
