Power of failure made Anupam Kher succeed!

Monday, March 05, 2018

Actor Anupam Kher was in London, where on Saturday he delivered a keynote address in the India Forum of the London School of Economics. Kher was obviously thrilled by the honour because as he tweeted: “A small town boy from Shimla was the keynote speaker at #LondonSchoolOfEconomics. Thank you, students of India Forum for this opportunity,” and “Power of failure gave me strength to succeed.” For those who’ve seen ‘Kucch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai’ (2003), this autobiographical play is about a young man’s belief in his dreams and unremitting efforts that see him succeed. Taken from episodes in Anupam’s real life, and which also starred the actor, it was a marvellous play about how someone with not much money, no connections and lacking film-star looks succeeded on the basis of sheer talent after an intense struggle in big, bad Bollywood. He may now be chairman of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), run his own acting school and be a motivational speaker and author as well, but all this hasn’t taken away Anupam’s humility and humanity from him, is what we tend to think. Wouldn’t you agree?

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Old, fond memories will define your mood today, which will show up in the manner in which you deal with work, where your mellow side will be visible to others. You are also circumspect with money and tend towards saving it. Ganesha says people dealing in cash and money-lenders will benefit.
