The most versatile actor Anupam Kher has played many different roles and had made it all count. He had played the role of a father to Shah Rukh Khan in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and made a great impression and recognition through it. On the occasion of DDLJ’s silver jubilee, Anupam said that it was amazing to be a part of the iconic film DDLJ. He said that the character which he played in DDLJ was a tribute to his father.

In an interview with Bombay Times Anupam Kher said that “According to me, Hindi cinema has two eras. Before Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and after DDLJ. It has been amazing to be a part of this iconic film. It has been a trendsetter as far as my character is concerned. Every young person from anywhere in the world who has seen the film wanted his/her father to be like me… the kind of father I played in the film was a tribute to my father. He was exactly like the man I portrayed in the film. So this film will always be special. I am glad that people continue to love it.” A few only know that the title of the film was suggested by Anupam’s wife Kirron Kher.
