BOLLYWOOD: Anupam Kher, who on Friday completed 34 years in Bollywood, says he learnt about life and show business with his “ups and downs”.
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,” Kher tweeted.
“My ups and downs have taught me so much about people, life and entertainment business. Thank you Mahesh Bhatt saab,” he added.
Kher 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.
