One of Bollywood's most accomplished actors, Anupam Kher turns 59 on March 7. Glamsham.Com wishes him birthday greetings and unravels a secret from the actor's life how Amitabh Bachchan infused in him the quality of being down- to -earth.


Any actor after winning the kind of fame and recognition that Anupam Kher won after his mind-blowing performance in Mahesh Bhatt's poignant movie SAARANSH, would have gone astray and Anupam Kher was no different.

After SAARANSH, Anupam Kher was flooded with offers and became a 'Number One' actor thanks to the success of super-hit movies like ARJUN, KARMA, RAM LAKHAN, DADDY etc. In fact his success was such that once eminent writer and lyricist Javed Akhtar remarked, ''Hindi films cannot be made without raw stock and Anupam Kher!''

Hence Anupam Kher, like most stars, had turned arrogant and snobbish. Recalling an incident that later made him humble , Anupam Kher in an interview confessed, '' Once during the shooting of AAKHREE RAASTA in Chennai, I reached about one hour late and when I found the air-conditioner not functioning in the make-up room, I threw starry tantrums. However, all my anger fizzled out when I saw Amitabh Bachchan, patiently sitting in the make-up room, without making any fuss!''

He added, ''What stunned me the most was that Bachchan Sahib, in the scorching heat of Chennai, was sitting in the make-up room in full get-up with beard and a blanket draped. He was patiently waiting for me to arrive! I was totally floored because despite being the superstar of the millennium Bachchan sahib's had arrived on time and had made no complaints of the air- conditioner not working.''

He continues, ''I was in complete awe of Bachchan sahib's punctuality, dedication and his devotion to his profession. That day I learned the lesson of humility and vowed to value time and gave up all my starry tantrums.''
