The seasoned actor who's portrayed diverse characters onscreen, is now all set to step into Nazi leader Adolf Hitler's shoes in an English film.
The actor tells Mid Day, "Yes, I am playing Hitler and am really looking forward to portraying him. I think he's one of the most interesting characters of our times. It will be a unique opportunity to play such a different role. Like Ben Kingsley played Gandhi, I will be playing Hitler. I had played Gandhi on a TV show years back, but this would be the first historical role for a movie."
Kher has also started researching the character. "I have watched a couple of movies on Hitler and am also reading some books. The film is being made on a really large scale and it's important I try and read up as much as possible."
The versatile actor is known for getting into the skin of negative as well as comic characters with equal ease.
