Anupam Kher is a highly accomplished Indian actor, who has played nearly 200 roles in various Indian and International films. He has played roles across genres, but most of his roles have been predominantly comic.

Kher was born on 7 March 1955 in a Kashmiri Pandit family in Shimla. He has struggled a lot to become an actor in Bollywood. In his struggling days as an actor in Bombay (present-day Mumbai), he even had to sleep on railway platform for a month. Today, he is happily married with Kirron Kher, another Indian veteran actress.

Kher has also won two National Film Awards, for his performances in Daddy (1989) and Maine Gandhi Ko Nahin Mara (2005).
