Anupam Kher Says His Ups And Downs Have Taught Him About Life

It has been an amazing journey so far

His first film was “Saaransh”. The actor, a National School of Drama alumnus, was only 28 when he took on the role of a retired middle class Maharashtrian man who had lost his son, in the drama directed by Mahesh Bhatt.

“I complete 34 years in movies. ‘Saaransh’, my first film was released on May 25, 1984. It has been an amazing journey so far,” Anupam tweeted.

“My ups and downs have taught me so much about people, life and entertainment business. Thank you Mahesh Bhatt saab,” he added.

Anupam won his first Filmfare Best Actor Award for his performance, and the film was also chosen as India’s official entry for the 1985 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language film.

In a short clip shared on Twitter, the actor said: “I was 28 when I played role of a father. Everyone said that this might be the worst decision of my life. As an actor who was almost homeless and on the streets. I was scared. It was a defining moment of (my) life. Today after 34 years and 515 films, I can proudly say that my first film ‘Saaransh’ became my Saaransh.

“Thank you everyone for love and support. Please continue it for the next 34 years.”
