Anupam Kher is an Indian actor who is considered one of the greatest actors of contemporary cinema. He has appeared in nearly 470 films and 100 plays. Though mainly appearing in Bollywood (Hindi) films, he has had roles in some films from other nations as well most notably the 2013 Oscar nominated Silver Linings Playbook. Kher was born in Shimla into a Kashmiri Pandit Hindu family. His father was a clerk and he had a modest upbringing. He left his home in Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, northern India, determined to make it as an actor and spent three years knocking on every door in Mumbai, the country\'s movie capital, ready to accept defeat.
