Anupam Kher recalls how Amitabh Bachchan gave him a reality check on his privilege: ‘I thought I was a star…’ -Newzflash

Actor Anupam Kher recalled how he received a privilege check from Amitabh Bachchan while shooting with him for the 1986 film Aakhri Rasta. The actor mentioned that while shooting in Chennai, he had felt that he was now an established star and wanted an air conditioner in her makeup room. However, he noticed Amitabh Bachchan sitting and reading, covered with a blanket, at the height of the Chennai summer.

Speaking to Mashable India, Anupam Kher said, “I thought I was a star, I wanted AC, make-up room and we were shooting in Chennai and it was already so uncomfortable. I asked who I was shooting with and was told it was with Amitabh Bachchan. I saw him sitting on the side, with a beard, a wig and wrapped in a blanket. So I went and said to him, ‘Sir I am Anupam Kher…’ He replied, ‘I have heard, I saw you in Saransh, you are a good actor.’ So I asked him, ‘Don’t you feel warm in this beard, blanket and wig?’ He answered, ‘Garmi ke baare mein sochta hoon, toh lagti hai. Nahin sochta hoon, toh nahin lagti. (If I think it’s hot, it’s hot. If I don’t think about it, it doesn’t feel like it’s hot.)’ After that, I never made a fuss about AC, weather or fans.”

Anupam Kher starred alongside Amitabh Bachchan and Boman Irani in Sooraj Barjatya’s latest slice-of-life film, Uunchai, which is about four friends who want to climb Mount Everest. About working with them, Kher said, “There is a mutual respect for each other. We are all at that stage of life where we don’t have to prove anything to each other. It was a pleasure to work with each other.”

Uunchai released on November 11 and is doing good business at the box office. Kher has seen several box office blockbusters this year including The Kashmir Files and Karthikeya 2.
