For his newly floated production house 'Karol Bagh Film and Entertainment', Anupam Kher could have opted for a conventional subject and an established star cast. Still, along with Satish Kaushik as the co-producer, he chose to make TEREE SANG that revolves around the subject of teen pregnancy and roped in newcomers like Ruslaan Mumtaz and Sheena Shahabadi. Kher says that he purposely went against the tide as he didn't wish to play safe.
''All through my career I have broken quite a few myths'', Anupam Kher reflects his journey that began with SAARANSH (1984), ''I played a man way past his prime in my very first major film when in reality I was still in my 20s. A few years down the line I played a gay character called Pinkoo in MAST KALANDAR (1991) when even the word 'gay' was not known as it is today.''
A veteran of close to 300 films, he went on to play varied roles in his 25 year long career so far. He forayed into direction with OM JAI JAGADISH (2002) and also produced critically acclaimed films like BARIWALI(1999) and MAINE GANDHI KO NAHI MAARA (2005). He has also been quite active in the theatre circuit.
''I have loved wearing different hats at different times and have actually never played safe'', says Kher, ''You have to try and take risks in your life. I guess only mediocre people play safe. By saying that I am not implying that I am great or something but then what's the point in doing something which everyone else is also doing.''
He adds, ''Same is the case with TEREE SANG where we have brought out the topic of teen pregnancy but presented it in an entertaining manner rather than giving any sermons. The youngsters (Ruslaan Mumtaz, Sheena Shahabadi) have been excellent while Satish Kaushik (the film's director) has surpassed his earlier work. Now it's the time for audiences to announce their verdict.''
