The veteran actor recently took to Twitter to share a short anecdote from years gone by. He pointed out how his first attempt at acting was when he was in class five, but it actually turned out to be quite the disaster. In the video, Anupam Kher shared that his class teacher wanted him to essay the role of Prithviraj Chauhan. Much to his dismay, the school play took quite the unexpected, hilarious turn.
"My first attempt at acting was a disaster. In the fifth standard school play my co-actor being stronger than me threw me in the audience. Back then in Shimla these were the excitement we lived for. Listen to this story from my autobiography," Anupam captioned the video.

In an earlier interview, Anupam was asked why he had not let anyone else write his biography, to which he responded, “I can only share my truth with people, the interpretation of another individual can be judgmental. That is why it’s my autobiography that I’ve written to share the truth of my life the way I want people to know. Of course, someone can do research on me and write a book. That would be an unauthorised biography in which I have no control over,” the actor revealed.
Anupam was last seen onscreen in One Day: Justice Delivered, an action thriller film directed by Ashok Nanda. He starred alongside Esha Gupta, Kumud Mishra and Anusmriti Sarkar.
