Recently Anupam Kher celebrated his film The Kashmir Files being eligible for Oscar 2023. The Vivek Agnihotri-directorial was a part of a list containing 301 films, which are now eligible for the upcoming Oscars. Talking about it, Anupam Kher told news agency ANI, “The Kashmir Files being shortlisted at the Oscars is an achievement in itself, it’s too early to celebrate. This tragedy was kept hidden for 32 years and after 32 years when this film was released, the world welcomed it but also there were a lot of people who commented a lot about it. Not only the film is shortlisted but I am also shortlisted for the Best Actor award. It’s a humbling and amazing feeling. Four more films are shortlisted from India. I wish them all the best and congratulations.”
