Kher attended the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa, and shared his video from the Acting masterclass. The actor got a standing ovation from the audience after his stellar performance.
The video shared by Anupam Kher on Instagram shows him seated on the stage, telling a person that he will keep his back at the camera and asks him to say ‘action’ before he begins to perform the scene from Saaransh. In Hindi, with his back facing the audience, Kher says, “I didn’t think that this old person has lost his son. I thought, ‘It’s been three years since I came looking for work and I’m not getting work. I’m sleeping at railway stations. I’m an educated actor, I’m being humiliated a lot (voice breaks)…’.”
The actor the turns around and repeats his line from Saaransh. He says, “Main apne mare huye bete ki ashthiya lene aaya hun (I have come here to take the remains of my dead son)…” Kher completes his dialogue and wipes the tears from his eyes. As Kher concludes, the audience gives him a standing ovation. The audience even cheers and claps for the actor.

Sharing the video, Kher wrote, “Actors should keep testing their capabilities. At my @iffigoa #MasterClass I put myself in that situation in front of the live audience. I decided to perform my famous scene from my 1st film #Saaransh! It was a risky thing to do but I think it worked. Somebody recorded this video in audience. Nice to discover I could do it. Do watch it. #ActorsLife #Actor.”
