Sikander Kher is an Indian actor. He made his acting debut with the film, Woodstock Villa (2008). Later he worked in a supporting role in the film Aurangzeb with Rishi Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor.

Background[edit]

Kher is the son of actress and politician Kirron Kher and her first husband Gautam Berry. He is the stepson of actor Anupam Kher.[2] In January 2016, Kher got engaged to Priya Singh, cousin of actress Sonam Kapoor. In March 2016, the engagement between Sikandar and Priya had been called off.[3]

Career[edit]

Sikandar attended his step-father, Anupam Kher's acting workshop. Thereafter he could only join the short-term 6-month National School of Drama course because he did not hold a Bachelor's degree.[4] He is also a member of the International Film And Television Club of Asian Academy Of Film & Television, Noida.

Kher got his first break in acting from producer Sanjay Gupta in the film, Woodstock Villa.[5] The film's review by Hindustan Times said that his performance was limited by the film's screenplay and direction.[6] On the other hand, Times of India said that he had a screen presence.[7] CNN-IBN's Rajeev Masand, who was highly critical about the movie, said that Sikander had an "engaging presence and impressive dialogue delivery."[8] In 9 years, Kher has acted in only six films including the Abbas-Mustan directed thriller Players which flopped at the box office and Aurangzeb starring Rishi Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor, where he played a supporting role.
