After being much sought after as a motivational speaker In India by corporates, Anupam Kher is making waves in the citadels of higher education in the US. On a fund raising mission for the education-focused NGO Pratham, Kher has been invited by several prestigious universities for an interface with their students.
He kicked off the lecture tour at the prestigious Kellogg Institute of Management where he discussed with MBA students about his new Power Within programme which includes topics such as Facing Failure and Being Oneself. "I was amazed at the interest the students had in such innovative topics which are not part of any curriculum," says Kher.
Next stop was the Illinois Institute of Technology and then the University of Maryland in Washington DC. The highpoint of his US visit will be a talk at the New York Film Academy where students will be delighted to listen to the only professionally active actor in the world to have founded his own acting school, Actor Prepares.
