Anupam Kher is undoubtedly one of the most prolific actors in the country with an enviable film repertoire. From comedic roles to negative characters, the actor can easily fit into any role. And it’s no surprise that a lot of thought is put into each of these roles. Now, on Thursday, Anupam Kher shared the story behind one of Karan Johar’s most iconic scenes — and now memes — Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. The actor has shared a screenshot of the famous phone call scene between Mr Malhotra played by Anupam Kher and Ms Briganza played by Archana Puran Singh in the film.
Sharing details, the veteran actor said: “When I entered for this scene Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, it was just supposed to be a normal phone call between Mr. Malhotra and Mrs. Briganza. But I improvised the scene in these different positions and fell off the bed etc.”
Anupam Kher added: “Everyone burst out laughing on the sets and thought I was crazy. Never knew it will become the most used meme for almost every situation.” He also added the title track of the film in the background.
Anupam Kher often shares glimpses of his work on social media. Recently, the 67-year-old released a video of him working out at the gym. In the caption, he said, “The only bad workout is the one that didn’t happen.”
A few days ago, Anupam Kher announced that he would play the late political leader Jayaprakash Narayan in Kangana Ranaut’s next movie Emergency. In a note, the actor added that this would be his 527th project. In the caption, he said: “BIG: Happy and proud to play the role of the man who fearlessly asked questions, a rebel in the truest sense of the word, Jayaprakash Narayan in Kangana Ranaut starrer and directorial next Emergency. My 527th. Yay Ho.”
