But what the country forgot and Anil remembered was on this day, 34 years ago, Mr. India had released. The Shekhar Kapur film is attached to the childhood of every 90’s kids. Today Anil Kapoor got nostalgic about the movie and shared his memories.
Anil Kapoor took to Instagram to share a video from the much-appreciated movie and captioned, “Mr. India was & always will be a very important film for me. I remember even 34 years ago when we began the journey I became obsessed with every detail. From the time I heard the tune of ‘Zindagi Ki Yahi Reet Hai’ I could only imagine Kishore Da’s voice singing it. At the time, Kishore Kumar & Laxmikant Pyarelal did not want to work together. It took months to even get in touch with Kishore da. When I finally did, I went to Kishore Kumar’s residence & mediated their patch up…the end result was this beautiful melody which is so uplifting during these tough times. Today is 33 years since the release of Mr. India and its message is still as important, if not more so. Be kind to each other, do the right thing; life may get tough, but in the end, goodwill prevails. ‘Zindagi Ki Yehi Reet Hai”
At the end, he shared a Shayari,
“Haar Ke Baad Hi Jeet Hai
Thode Aansu Hai, Thodi Hasi
Aaj Gham Hai To Kal Hai Khushi”
