While we all look up to filmy stories and dream of meeting our soulmate someday, there are some B-town couple’s whose real-life love story can give any script-writer a run for their money. Veteran actor Anupam Kher and Kirron Kher are one such couple. The story of their friendship blossoming into love is very filmy. On Kirron Kher’s birthday, let’s revisit the story of how she divorced her first husband in order to marry Anupam.

Anupam Kher and Kirron Kher were both married to other people when they both used to do the theatre in Chandigarh. Revealing about how their friendship blossomed into a relationship, back in 2013, Kirron had told Firstpost, “We both were in theatre in Chandigarh, and we were the best of friends. There was nothing he did not know about me, and I knew everything about him, up to the extent of knowing which girl he was planning to ‘patao’. It was fun and we worked together well too. But there was no attraction of any kind beyond friendship.”

Further revealing how she divorced her first husband, Kirron said, “I came to Bombay, I married Gautam (Berry) (in 1979), and we discovered that the marriage was just not happening. Anupam too had been married(in 1979), and that had gone wrong. He and I were still good friends, doing plays together. I remember we were going to Calcutta for Nadira Babbar’s play, he came looking different, his head was shaved, for some film he was doing I think. When he was leaving the room, he looked back at me, and something passed between us. Later he came and knocked on my door, and said ‘I want to talk to you.’ He then said ‘I think I have fallen in love with you.’ And suddenly there was this immense, intense change, the chemistry exploded. I got a divorce and married him. He had nothing then.”
