Anupam Kher and Mahesh Bhatt’s association goes beyond films. At the age of 28, Anupam Kher played the role of a 65-year-old retired school teacher in his debut film, Saaransh, helmed by Mahesh Bhatt. The actor pulled it off with great conviction and received praise and critical acclaim.
Interestingly, not many know how fond these two of each other are. Anupam Kher even follows a tradition of giving away a small amount from each of his projects to Mahesh Bhatt for the past three decades as a token of appreciation.
In fact, he recently gave some amount in pounds to the filmmaker, as he is shooting for his upcoming British show.
Have a look:
“I completed 34 years in movies. While everyone told me that playing a 65-year-old in Saaransh could have been the biggest mistake of my life, it became a defining moment of my life and there was no looking back. My ups and downs have taught me so much about people, life, and the entertainment business. Thank you, Mahesh Bhatt Saab, Rajshri Films and the audience for showering upon love and support.”
