Actor Anupam Kher has, in recent years, branched out of his comfort zone to work in crossover projects. He was seen in films like The Big Sick (2017) and Silver Linings Playbook (2012). Of late, he has been busy shooting for his BBC One TV series called Mrs Wilson and has been routinely posting pictures and videos from location shoots in the UK.
On Sunday, he posted a video from a place called Ballywalter Park in Northern Ireland, announcing that he has completed his bit in the upcoming TV series. In the video he says, “So I finished the shooting of Mrs Wilson. It’s a wrap for me and it was a pleasure working with all the actors and the director. It was wonderful to be shooting here. Hopefully, we will meet the same unit again. This is a beautiful feeling for an actor to finish my project.”
However, it is not clear what role Anupam plays in the series, reports the Indian Express.
In a picture he shared on June 6, Anupam is seated with four members from the team (it is not clear if they are all actors) in his vicinity. Sharing the picture, he wrote: “The super talented ladies specially #MsKonnieDaniel who makes me look the character in #MrsWilson. Thank you ladies for your warmth and expertise. #LizBoston #KarenScott #LaurenBaldwin #HairAndMakeup @bbcone #Drama #BasedOnTrueStory.”
He also shared another video from the set where he reveals how tough it was for a person from Hindi medium to master his dialogues in English. He wrote: “During a short break, I am trying to memorise my lines. Sometimes it is really difficult for a Hindi medium school guy. But Show has to go on and I have no choice. #MrsWilson #MiniSeries #Location #SummerTime #IndianActor.”
Mrs Wilson is inspired from the memoir of one Alison Wilson. English actor Ruth Wilson, who is the granddaughter of Alison, will appear as her grandmother.
According to a report in Variety, the series is based in London between 1940 and 1960, and tells the true story of Alison, who thinks she is happily married. However, when her husband named Alex dies, another woman turns up at her doorstep claiming she is a the real Mrs Wilson.
Playing Alex is Game of Thrones actor Iain Glen.
