A human life is filled with ebbs and flows. Although, most of us think that Bollywood actors are demi-gods, the truth is that even they have to go through their fair share of highs and lows in life.
Celebrated actor Anupam Kher had one such low in his life. The 63-year-old actor had once lost it all after making the movie “Maine Gandhi Ko Nahi Mara” in 2005.
The last film I produced, Maine Gandhi Ko Nahin Mara, I wanted to be a tycoon but I almost went bankrupt. I really did. Nothing worked. I wanted an ‘Anupam Kher Studio limited’, and then I realised I didn’t even have five thousand rupees. Then I did my play ‘Kuch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai’, based on my failures, which gave me maximum amount of money.
During the 2015 IIFA awards ceremony in Malaysia, the seasoned actor revealed the reason behind starting his acting school, ‘The Actor Prepares’. Kher said that he opened the school when he realized that he has failed in all aspects of acting. The school started with a batch of 12 students and has now become a reputed acting school in the nation.
Anupam Kher was born on March 7, 1955 in Shimla and started his career with Mahesh Bhatt’s “Saraansh” in 1984. However, his debut movie was “Aagman” in 1982 but his career took a leap after “Saraansh” for which he received the Best Actor award. Kher is married to famous actress and MP, Kirron Kher and occasionally speaks upon politics and the rights of Kashmiri Hindus.
