Anupam Kher congratulates Mahesh Bhatt on 30 years of Vishesh Films with a special message

Anupam Kher says it was wonderful for him to be a part of the celebration of the anniversary of Mahesh Bhatt's banner Vishesh Films

Anupam Kher, who recently took some underprivileged kids out on a movie date to watch Rahul Bose’s Poorna,  has expressed his gratitude to Mahesh Bhatt, the director of his debut film “Saaransh”. The veteran actor says it was wonderful for him to be a part of the celebration of the anniversary of filmmaker’s banner. Vishesh Films, owned by brothers, Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt, completed 30 years of its existence on Sunday.

Anupam on Monday morning took to Twitter to share a photograph of himself along with Mahesh, Mukesh, Salim Khan, Shraddha Kapoor, Aditya Roy Kapur, Anu Malik, Pooja Bhatt and Dino Morea. “Wonderful to be part of celebrations of 30 years of Vishesh Films. Will always be full of gratitude for Mahesh Bhatt saab (sir) for Saaransh,” Anupam captioned the image.

Mahesh replied: “Anupam when one looks at life through eyes of gratitude, the world becomes a magical place. I thank you for your part in my journey. Thank you!” The actor, a National School of Drama alumnus, was only 28 when he took on the role of a retired middle-class Maharashtrian man, who had lost his son in Saaransh.

Anupam’s stellar performance not just won him his first Filmfare best actor award, but the film was also chosen as India’s official entry for the 1985 Academy Award for best foreign language film. On the work front, the actor will next be seen in Shree Narayan Singh’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, which stars Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar in lead roles. The film is a love story with a satirical flavour and is slated to hit the screens on August 11 this year.
