Controversy ·      Political Allegiance : Anupam Kher has been a devoted supporter of the right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), an Indian political party. Those who think actors should maintain their apolitical status and refrain from so openly aligning themselves with any political entity have criticised his outspoken support for the party and its leaders. His political beliefs, according to detractors, may have an impact on his work and make him less ready to participate in substantive discussions about crucial topics.

·      Film Certification Controversy : Kher was accused of restricting creative freedom in the Indian film business while serving as the chairman of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). Filmmakers charged that the board, under his direction, was unduly conservative and placed limits on material deemed unpleasant, sparking discussions about censorship and artistic expression in India.

·      Kashmiri Pandit Controversy : Anupam Kher has been an outspoken supporter of Kashmiri Pandits’ rights since they were compelled to leave their homes in the Kashmir Valley as a result of unrest in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Kashmiri Pandits are a Hindu minority group. Many people support his stance, but some say he oversimplifies a complex problem and ignores the intricate facts of the Kashmir conflict. This has generated contentious discussions over how he presented the circumstances.
