Veteran Bollywood actor Anupam Kher, who will celebrate his 56th birthday Monday, reveals he never plans for his birthdays because each day is new and special for him.
“I don’t plan anything for my birthday because I believe in celebrating life than just a single day. I believe that each day is a new day and a special day so why just single out one singe day?” Anupam told IANS.
The two-time national award-winning actor made his acting debut in the 1982 Hindi movie “Aagman”, but carved a niche for himself by playing a grieving father in the 1984 movie “Saaransh”. His portrayal garnered immense critical and commercial acclaim.

Some of his unforgettable films include “Karma”, “Daddy”, “Ram Lakhan”, “Lamhe”, “Dil, “Saudagar”, “Hum Aapke Hain Kaun…!”, “Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge” and “Maine Gandhi Ko Nahin Mara”.
Anupam also ventured into direction with “Om Jai Jagadish” in the year 2003. However he is yet to tread the same path again. Also, the versatile actor manages his acting school Actor Prepares that has branches in Mumbai, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad and Britain.
The Padma Shri winner will balance work and family on his birthday.
“I will be inaugurating The EU Film Festival in Mumbai on my birthday. Then my parents are in town, so will catch up with them and spend time with them. No other plans,” he revealed.
