Bollywood actor Anupam Kher has that playing the role of Adolf Hitler in the upcoming film 'My Friend Hitler' would be challenging.
Addressing media persons here on Sunday, Kher said: "For me... I already have an image, I am a known actor, so it will be doubly hard work for me to take away that image, and an actor likes taking challenges," said Kher.
Actress Neha Dhupia would be playing the role of Eva Braun, Hitler's lover, and said she is very excited to work with Kher.
"I am really looking forward to working with Anupam Kher, and it'll be exciting, it'll be educative. I'll learn things on the set everyday. We are going to be doing some workshops together to make sure," said Dhupia.
The director of the film, Rakesh Ranjan Kumar, said that the film would be released in both the Indian and international cinemas.
He added that Hitler was the most successful loser of the twentieth Century and he wants to interpret the reasons for that.
"As a leader, he was successful. I want to show these things. Why did he lose as a human being, what were the problems, what were the issues, what were his intentions, this is what we want to show," said Kumar.
Kumar also said that Kher and Dhupia are the actors best-suited for their roles, as both of them bear resemblance to the characters they are playing.
