Anupam took to Instagram to share a few pictures from the event along with his views on the film. He wrote, "Watched #Thar!! Excellent!! Very Unique presentation of an unconventional story. Beautifully shot. Intriguing! Very good performances by the whole cast. My friend and Veteran @satishkaushik2178 is superb. My other best friend @anilskapoor is mind blowing and wonderfully restrained! But it @harshvarrdhankapoor who is the heart of the film. Congratulations cast and crew!! @netflix_in."

Set in the 1980s, Thar traces the journey of Siddharth (Harsh Varrdhan) through a remote village in Rajasthan that has recently been rocked by a series of violent killings. Anil plays the role of a cop Surekha Singh, who investigates these murders.

Prior to working on Thar, Anil and Harsh Varrdhan had collaborated on the Netflix movie AK vs AK, in which Harsh Varrdhan had a cameo appearance. Anil said Harsh Varrdhan offered him to act in Thar and he gave his nod to the project as it made him venture into an uncharted territory as a performer. “I liked the world and my role and felt I haven’t done anything in this space. The way the story has been narrated is different. It is engaging and entertaining in a different way but it is not 'atrangi',” he told PTI.
