The actor said that he is excited about portraying the German dictator because he is an interesting character.
"Yes, I am playing Hitler and am really looking forward to portraying him. I think he's one of the most interesting characters of our times. It will be a unique opportunity to play such a different role," Kher told Mid Day.
"This would be the first historical role for a movie. I have watched a couple of movies on Hitler and am also reading some books. The film is being made on a really large scale and it's important I try and read up as much as possible."
He added: "For me, it's just another character and I approach it like that. I have played so many negative roles in my lifetime, and all have just been different characters for me."
