9. Mr Bhamra (Anupam Kher) – THEN
At the start of the movie we’re pretty fearful that Jess’s dad is going to be a typical, strict Indian parent, especially since he makes it clear he doesn’t want his daughter playing football. But when Mr Bhamra reveals that it’s only because he doesn’t want Jess to be teased or get hurt, we see that he’s really a big softy underneath it all, and by the end of the movie we see him stand that little bit taller.
These days, Anupam is looking fantastic for his age (in my opinion), has won a bunch of awards, and has starred in over 500 films in many different languages – not too shabby! He’s even starred in successful movies like The Silver Linings Playbook with Jen Law and our bae Bradley Cooper. In 2018, he resigned as chairman of the Film and Television Institute of India and is now spending more time in the USA for his work on the TV show New Amsterdam.
