Meanwhile, on the work front, Anupam Kher is now gearing up for the release of his film Hotel Mumbai, which is based on Mumbai terror attacks that took place on November 26, 2008. Rather than focusing on all the different attacks, this mainly covers the isolated incident when terrorists laid siege to the Taj Mahal hotel near the Gateway of India. The makers have taken up a unique perspective as it narrates the incident from the point of view of the hotel attendants of Taj. 

Hotel Mumbai which also stars Dev Patel features him as a simple Sikh man who works as a staff member at the hotel, whereas Anupam Kher plays the role of a chef, who takes charge of the situation as the crisis takes place. It also features Armie Hammer as one of the foreign guests who was staying there at the time.
