I grew up watching Anupam Kher play a doting father and often jokingly told my mother that I want him as my father. She would burst into laughter and would just hug me tight. Gone are the childhood days but my liking for Anupam Kher did not deter with time. The actor continues to hold a special place in my heart and definitely tops my list of favoruite stars on this earth. The liking surely isn’t merely an outcome of watching his movies. Beyond Bollywood, Anupam Kher has proved his mettle by actively taking up social causes and for raising voice against injustice in India.
Bollywood actor Anupam Kher knows that celebs are a source of inspiration in India and has always ensured he stands up for right. He had shown immense support to ‘I am Anna’ campaign and had participated in Anna Hazare’s fight against corruption. More than a year later, Arvind Kejriwal’s ‘exposure’ of corrupt politicians have not gone down too well with the same Anupam Kher. At a recent event, the film actor showed his resentment with Anna Hazare’s close associate. Anupam Kher said that activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal should first prove himself rather than criticising others.
Most Indians feel the same about Arvind Kejriwal these days and would be happy that someone is speaking their mind. Kudos to Anupam Kher for speaking his heart out.
