Anupam Kher at Oxford Union, Actor Discusses Life, Homelessness and Indian Cinema
Anupam Kher said that he was homeless and used to sleep on railway stations, but never gave up
Veteran actor Anupam Kher famous for his multitude of roles in Bollywood, including the oh-so loveable Mr. Malhotra from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai recently spoke at the Oxford Union in England. He spoke about life challenges, ups and downs, homelessness and working in Indian cinema. The Oxford Union Society, commonly known as the Oxford Union, is a society primarily for debating in the city of Oxford, England, whose membership is drawn predominantly from the University of Oxford.
Anupam Kher on Wednesday expressed his excited and enthusiastic sentiments through his social media account. On his Twitter account he expressed; "Excited to be speaking at Oxford Union this evening. I know I studied at DAV Higher Secondary Hindi medium School in Shimla. Never got more than 38 per cent marks for my studies. But I also know, life mein by god kuch bhi ho sakta hai (anything is possible in life)."
On Thursday, the 64-year-old expressed his gratitude for all those at the Oxford Union for hosting him and allowing him the platform to share his life stories, challenges and experiences. In a follow up tweet he sincerely articulates: "Thank you members of Oxford Union and president Genevieve Athis for your warmth, welcome and appreciation. It was a learning experience to speak to you about my ups & downs of life, about cinema and of course about India. A special thanks to Indian students."
Recently, Archana Puran Singh recalls the time she was shooting for Ladaai and was asked to do a kissing sequence with Anupam. Anupam Kher responded after he was asked if he was scared of his wife if he was to pursue the scene: “I didn’t fear Kirron... but considering you (Archana Puran Singh) weren't comfortable doing so, I requested Deepakji to remove it completely.” In regards to his astounding Bollywood career, Anupam was last seen starring in 'The Accidental Prime Minister' in which he played former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
