If you haven’t heard about veteran actor Anupam Kher’s mother, you are missing out on knowing one of the cutest mothers on the planet. Anupam Kher has his own little video series with his mother, Dulari and they are absolute fun and full of entertainment. While the A Wednesday actor has always been sharing goofy pictures and videos with his mother, his captions have always thrown light on how much he loves, admires and respects her. However, words always fail to acknowledge everything a mother does for a child. Now, Anupam Kher has opened up on his mother, Dulari’s struggles, her lessons for them (his whole family) and also revealed that she has a crucial part role in shaping what he is today.
The post shared by Humans of Bombay on their Instagram handle has a few pictures and videos from Anupam Kher’s collection on the social app. He opened up on how his mother would always give him the positivity to help him start his day. Narrating their school incidents, the Special 26 actor said, “I have vivid memories of Mom dropping me to school. Before leaving, she’d say, ‘Your best day is today.’ And as a kid, I believed it. It helped me dream; made me forget how poor we were. Papa only made 90 Rs. a month, so Mom had to sell her jewellery to put us into good schools. But I was terrible at studies, so Mom was worried. If Papa was lenient, she’d say, ‘Zyada tareef mat karo (Don’t praise him)’; she wanted to keep us focused. Mom was responsible for shaping me as a person–I was 10 when a Sadhu came to school; Mom gave me 5 paise to give him. But I spent 2 paise & kept the rest in my bag. When Mom asked, I lied.” Post that, his mother punished him and did not let him enter the house till he confessed.
Anupam Kher went on to share the deets of the time when he came to Mumbai in hopes to become an actor. “Her values were all I had when I came to Mumbai to be an actor with ₹37. At times I’d sleep on the platform, but never told her & when Mom fell sick, she didn’t tell me; we both tried to protect each other. And after I started doing films, Mom kept me grounded, ‘No matter how high you fly, always be humble.’ After Papa’s death, we became close–she’d lost her partner & I, my best friend. On his choutha, I said, ‘Instead of mourning, let’s celebrate his life’. We wore colourful clothes & invited a rock band. We narrated our fond memories with Papa; Mom said, ‘I didn’t know I was married to such a wonderful man’,” he shared.
The Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge actor also opened how #DulariRocks became a thing on social media. “After, we became best friends–she’d accompany me to award ceremonies & chat with my friends. Once, while she was saying something, I filmed her without her knowledge & posted it online–it went viral! So, I started uploading her videos regularly. She didn’t know she was being filmed, so she’d talk about everything under the sun–be it her bahu ki burai or her hair fall problem. Soon, she became so popular that random people would ask–‘How is #dularirocks?’ And Mom didn’t know about it until people started recognising her on the streets–they’d ask for selfies! She wasn’t used to so much attention, so she confronted me, ‘Kya karta rehta hai tu (What do you keep doing)?’ Now she’s become more vigilant, so I’ve started filming her sneakily. But whenever she sees me, the first thing she asks is, ‘Aaj camera kaha chupake rakha hai (Where have you hidden your camera?’” he said.
We have to say it, #Dularirocks, really. Teehee.
