Veteran actor Anupam Kher says he is proud of his past and his work, but doesnt believe in living on the laurels he has achieved.

For the actor, success is not what you have achieved as an artist, but what you have achieved as a person.

“I consciously decided two years back that I will start from the scratch. When I came to New York, I consciously decided that I will forget what I have done all these years, let people remember that. I am thankful to all that but I will start from scratch,” Anupam told IANS.

“From that point of view, it is my second year in the industry, and I still have a lot to do. I am proud of my past, my work but I am not the person who will live on laurels of what I have achieved. Or let’s say that two years back I decided that after interval, now the journey starts. I have the knowledge. I have the wisdom of what I have learnt all these years and I can apply that to what I am going to do. I am happy the kind of person I have turned out to be … That is the most important thing,” he added.

Sharing her experience of working with the National award-winning actor Nawazuddin, she said: “I’m a huge fan of Nawazuddin. He’s so precise and professional. While working with him, I was surprised because he comes off as such a serious and brooding actor, but he was the opposite on the set of this love story. Whenever I would tell him that I would surprise him with my performances, he reciprocated with such spontaneity. In fact, our give-and-take during the scenes came about in a fluid manner”.
