Mumbai: Kirron Kher and Anupam Kher have been married since 1985 and are proud parent's to Sikander Kher, Kirron's son from her first marriage.
On account of her birthday, let's visit the past and shed some light on how her love story with Anupam bloomed. Kirron, in an interview in 2013, said that they were very close friends, but their bond never crossed the boundaries of friendship. They were also married to other people at that time.
"We both were in theatre in Chandigarh and were best friends. There was nothing he did without me knowing about it. I even knew which girl he was planning to patao. It was fun; we worked together really well. But there was no attraction," she told Firstpost. She further added, "I came to Bombay, and I married Gautam (Berry), we discovered that the marriage was just not happening. Anupam's marriage, too, was not working great. We were still good friends and 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 there was a moment 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."
Kirron and Anupam's marriage has been going strong since then. She put her acting career on the side after marriage. She is a Member of Parliament. The actress is now diagnosed with cancer and undergoing treatment.
