Felt Need To Reinvent Myself After Hitting 60: Anupam On Fitness Regime

Veteran actor Anupam Kher is one fit actor! Even though he’s in his 60s, he’s regular at the gym, and going by his social media posts, it looks like he doesn’t ever miss his workout!

The Padma Bhushan awardee, known for “reinventing” himself on screen, is also aiming to “reinvent” his physique.
In a tete-a-tete with ANI during the 53rd International Film Festival of India (IFFI), the actor got candid about his fitness journey and motivation.

He said, “Seven years ago when I turned 60, I felt I should reinvent myself. I began by transforming myself physically, so people take my intentions to reinvent myself seriously. Hence, I started to exercise, hit the gym, do yoga and run.”

“I feel glad when ANI asks me about my fitness other than my films,” he added.

From sleeping on railway platforms during his struggling days to starring in some of the most successful Hindi films of all time like ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’, ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!’ and ‘Ram Lakhan’, the two-time National Awardee has certainly made a mark in the Hindi film industry.

The actor also got candid about the importance of “truth” in his work.

With reference to his recent hit ‘The Kashmir Files’, the ‘Saaransh’ actor said that “the audience recognizes the truth element in it (the film)….it should have happened many years back. It has taken 32 years to reach the audience and I am full of gratitude that people have understood the tragedy and truth behind it. It has done well commercially and reached from the maker’s heart to the viewers’ hearts”.

“For me, it was not just a film, but a truth which we had to carry out to the world and I am very thankful to IFFI for giving a platform to the film,” he added.

When asked about his reactions to the success of his most recent film, ‘Uunchai’, Anupam’s face beamed with joy and he said, “I consider myself a fortunate person.”

“I don’t know what will happen next year, but this year, I am very proud that my films have done great at the box office, earning over 500 crores”, he added.

Lastly, the eight-time Filmfare Awardee said, “A man can do anything if he works hard and with honesty and good intent”.

Over his illustrious career spanning five long decades, Anupam has undoubtedly carved a niche for himself and set a benchmark for Indian cinema through his many beloved roles. (ANI)

#AccidentalPrimeMinister riles Congress

The Accidental Prime Minister, starring Anupam Kher as Manmohan Singh, is BJP’s propaganda against their party, Congress leaders said on Friday as the former PM evaded comment on the growing controversy over the film on him. Congress leaders said propaganda against the party would not work and the truth shall prevail. The trailer of the film, based on the book of the same name by Sanjaya Baru who served as Singh’s media advisor from 2004 to 2008, was released in Mumbai on Thursday. The trailer shows Singh as a victim of the Congress’ internal politics ahead of the the 2014 general elections. Riveting tale of how a family held the country to ransom for 10 long years. Was Dr Singh just a regent who was holding on to the PM’s chair till the time heir was ready? Watch the official trailer of ‘TheAccidentalPrimeMinister’, based on an insider’s account, releasing on 11 January,” the BJP said on Thursday night.

Responding to the BJP, Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said on Twitter that such fake propaganda by the party would not stop it from asking the Modi government questions on “rural distress, rampant unemployment, demonetisation disaster, flawed GST, failed Modinomics, all pervading corruption . Asked by journalists to comment on the film at the Congress’ foundation day function at the party headquarters on Friday, Singh walked away without saying anything. Congress leader and Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said propaganda against the Congress and its leaders would not work and the truth shall prevail. His colleague, Congress leader PL Punia, accused the BJP of evading answers on its misgovernance after having failed on all fronts. This is the handiwork of the BJP. They know that time has come to give answers after completion of five years and they are now trying to divert attention by raising such issues and evade answering to the public after its government failed on all fronts, he said. National Conference leader Omar Abdullah also tweeted on the film, saying, “Can’t wait for when they make The Insensitive Prime Minister. So much worse than being the accidental one.” Directed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte, the film stars Kher as Manmohan Singh and Akshaye Khanna as Baru. (PTI)]]>
