‘This man will do anything to succeed... even fail’ is how his inspiring one-act play ‘Kuch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai’ describes the potential and the stuff that Anupam Kher is made up of. At an age where most of the people have walking sticks as their companions, Anupam Kher is hitting the gym with a vengeance. What more proof we need from this man, who is a living example to the adage, ‘Age is just a number’. After having done some of the most remarkable films in Bollywood, Anupam Kher is now all set to star in a film that’s been made for the OTT. The quirky, slice of life film has been titled as ‘Vijay 69’.
