Amitabh Bachchan at Anupam Kher’s book launch
Amitabh Bachchan read out excerpts from Anupam Kher’s book on the power of life and highlighted Anupam’s grandfather’s quote Bheega hua aadmi baarish se nahin darta (The rain makes no difference to one who’s soaked). Kirron Kher talked about how Anupam had always been around for her before they became life partners. Anupam himself felt that failure had taught him more about life than even his successes had. David Dhawan was around to lend his support on the actor’s first foray into publishing.
Was Amitabh flattered when he heard a Sholay ringtone playing on a cellphone in the audience? We weren’t sure as he laughed and commented, “Now that’s so old!”
