Actor Anupam Kher is currently in the news for his remarkable performance in Vivek Agnihotri’s film ‘The Kashmir Files’. Kher plays the role of Pushkar Nath, a Kashmiri Pandit in the film. Interestingly, Pushkar Nath was also the name of his father in real life.
While the world is still talking about TKF, actor Anupam Kher has shared a picture with his late father.
Anupam wrote in the caption, “This was my last pic with my father #PushkarNath Ji. He passed away after 11days. The simplest soul on earth. Never hurt anybody. Touched everyone’s life with his kindness. An ordinary man. But an extraordinary father. He longed to go to his home in Kashmir but couldn’t! We miss him! My performance in #TheKashmirFiles is dedicated to him.”
This heartwarming picture and the caption is melting the hearts of netizens. A person commented on Anupam Kher’s Instagram post, “The best tribute a son can give his father is through the beauty of art. And when it is about an issue close to the heart and the soul, it means the world. By recreating Kashmiri Pandits PushkarNath role in The Kashmir Files, you have given a powerful yet moving tribute to your dearest father. Someday his longing will be over because his son made a film that has woken up India from deep slumber. Prayers for your respected father to rest in peace. Thank you for being YOU.”
Another user wrote, “I adore you Sir. And your Father would be so proud and overwhelmed to watch you in this Character.”
