Anupam Kher doesnt consider himself a mainstream actor for this reason 

Seasoned Bollywood actor Anupam Kher was last seen in the massively popular film 'The Kashmir Files' and soon he'll be seen playing a significant role in Kangana Ranaut's upcoming political drama 'Emergency'. Although he prefers doing serious roles these days, there was a time when Anupam was best known for his comedic and dramatic roles.

In a recent conversation with Times Now Navbharat, Kher stated that he doesn't consider himself a mainstream actor anymore since filmmakers like Karan Johar and Sajid Nadiadwala have stopped working with him. He said, "I am not a part of mainstream cinema in India today. I am not. I am not doing any Karan Johar film, I am not doing any Sajid Nadiadwala film, I am not doing any Aditya Chopra film because the offers have not come. I was a darling of all these people. I have done everybody’s films. But I am not blaming them for not casting me anymore."

Sharing how he kept himself busy with other projects, Anupam said, "But because they were not casting me in their films, I found a path where I did a Tamil film called Connect, I did a Telugu film called Tiger Nageswara Rao. I have also done Sooraj Barjatya’s Uunchai."

Anupam Kher further added, "Otherwise I could’ve have sat down & said, ‘Arey yaar mere dost aur mere jo itne kareebi they ek zamaane mein, mujhe ab lete nahin hain filmon mein toh main ab kya karoon main toh barbaad ho gaya.’ Of course mujhe takleef hoti hai, dukh hota hai ki kyun nahin lete bhai main toh inki sab filmon mein kaam karta tha. But, it’s not a complaint & neither am I holding it against them. I am just saying that sometimes when one door shuts, so many other windows & doors open. I am rediscovering myself as an actor.”
