Bollywood actor Anupam Kher spent a week-long vacation in his hometown Shimla after a strict lockdown due to Covid-19 pandemic. As the actor took a walk on the empty streets of Shimla, he met a local resident who failed to recognise him. Anupam introduced himself and told that he has done 518 films in his career. Even then, the man had a hard time recognizing the actor.
Seeing the simplicity of the man, Anupam shared the video and mentioned that such instances keep him grounded. He wrote in the caption, “Reality Check: I always proudly announce to the world that I have done 518 films. And I presume that everybody (at least in India) knows me. But #GyanChand ji very innocently shattered my confidence. He had no idea who I was. It was funnily heartbreaking and yet beautifully refreshing! Thank you my friend for helping me keep my feet on ground!”
Anupam Kher made his Bollywood debut in 1984 with the film ‘Saaransh’. He went on to work in blockbuster films like ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’, ‘Mohabbatein’ and ‘Veer Zaara’.
He is also the author of books ‘The Best Thing About You Is You’, ‘Lessons Life Taught Me Unknowingly’ and ‘Your Best Day Is Today’.
