A motivational post by him on his birthday went viral on Twitter. It read:
Happy birthday to me! I have always believed in reinventing myself. Today as I start my 67th year, I am motivated too share these pics with you. I know I have miles to go. Wish me luck! This is 2022. #YearOfTheBody. Jai Ho!
Alongside the images, he opened up about his vision of achieving a fit body one day.
“Happy birthday to me! Today as I start my 67th year, I am motivated and excited to present a new vision I have for myself! These pics are an example of the slow progress I have made in the last couple of years. 37 years ago you met a young actor who debuted in the most unconventional way and played a 65-year-old man. Throughout my career, I have tried to explore every single avenue as a performer. But there is one dream that I always had inside me, but never did anything to make it a reality,” Kher wrote.
Celebrated Bollywood and Hollywood actor’s wished him today. Sending out tweets, singing songs and sharing inspirational work from his career is trending all over Twitter and Instagram. Taking to Instagram, actors Kirron Kher, Sikandar Kher and others penned heartfelt birthday wishes for Anupam Kher on his 67th birthday. Take a look:
Anupam Kher defined the 80’s and 90’s with his plethora of roles—as there were years where he starred in more than four films. He is the unusual dad-villain from the 90’s, and he could make the effortless transition from the loud 90’s to the more toned-down 2000’s.
“Happy birthday my favourite legend #young man.. my healthy wishes alwz with you,” a fan commented.
“First at fol happy birthday sir….Bhaghwan aapko lambi umar pradan kare aap aise hi fit and fine dikho…. And now what is this you’re looking really very fit person like 25 years old look,” another one wrote.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Kher is awaiting the release of his film ‘The Kashmir Files’, which revolves around the genocide of Kashmiri Pandits in 1990. It will hit the theatres on March 11.
Let’s take a look at netizen’s reactions to the viral Twitter post:

What kind of exercise sir? I guess too much cycling due to high petrol prices imposed by Congress.

Sir please ye body building ke peeche mat bhagna.Aajkal bahut side effects sun rahe hain. Aap jaise ho waise hi acche ho . Apki pehchan aap se hai, aapki body se nahi…
