37 years ago, a man came to Mumbai with the dream of achieving something big, and today, is he a successful actor with two National Awards and eight Filmfare Awards in his bag. Well, we are talking about none other than Anupam Kher. At the age of 28, the actor made his Bollywood debut with the film Saaransh. At such a young age, Anupam Kher played the role of an old man. Nothing, but pure thirst for the craft of theatre and acting, drove him.
And today, as the actor completes 37 years in Mumbai, and as a Thank You gesture to the city, he travelled in Mumbai local from VT to Bandra. Kher on his Instagram posted a video from VT station. Check it out here:
I arrived in the beautiful and large hearted city of Mumbai 37 years back on 3/6/81. This city has been very generous to me and to millions of people like me from all over India. As a symbolic ‘Thank You’ gesture travelled in a local train from VT station to Bandra. God is kind and so is Mumbai. Jai Ho.🙏😎
Kher’s first film Saaransh had also completed 34 years of its release on May 25 and the actor had posted a video thanking Mahesh Bhatt and his fans.
And I complete 34 years in movies. #Saaransh, my first film was released on 25th of May, 1984. It has been an amazing journey so far. I have learnt so much from my failures and successes. My ups and downs have taught me so much about people, life and entertainment business. Thank you #MaheshBhatt Saab for a fantastic launch film. I couldn’t have asked for more.🙏💕 #34YearsOfSaaransh #GodIsKind
