Some feat this!

JUST LIKE her husband Anupam Kher, Kiron also has a unique style of acting. Her TV serials and talk shows are a case in point. Not to forget her role in "Devdas" that earned her appreciation. Kiron Kher is now basking in the attention she received at the 56th Locarno Film Fest where she won the Silver Leopard for her performance in "Khamosh Pani." Incidentally, the film won 42-year-old Pakistani director, Sabiha Sumar, the Golden Leopard. Shot in villages near Rawalpindi and Islamabad, the film has Pakistani actors and the crew is a mix of French and German artistes. The film goes back to the Zia-ul-Haq martial regime. The story revolves round a widow and her son who becomes a religious fanatic. Given the fact that the entire shoot took place early last year when there was so much animosity between the two countries, Kiron talks of the warm and caring people she came across in our neighbourhood country.
