Anupam Kher to lead march to Rashtrapati Bhavan against ‘award wapsi’

12189537_10156255429695311_8677587824440926599_nVeteran actor Anupam Kher along with a string of artistes, writers and painters, will head to Rashtrapati Bhavan here on Saturday to protest against ‘Award Wapsi’.

“Will give details about our march to the Rashtrapati Bhavan on 7th by artists, writers, painters etc. by tomorrow. #ToleranceDebate,” Anupam tweeted on Wednesday.

After a host of filmmakers, including names like Dibakar Banerjee and Anand Patwardhan, returned various government awards and honours they have received to express solidarity with FTII students, a few members of the Hindi film fraternity termed it as a “publicity gimmick” and an “insult”.

Anupam had earlier shared on Twitter: “This #AwardWapsiGang has not insulted the government, but the jury, the chairman of the jury and the audience who watched their films.”
