He was happy to take a picture with me and I obviously was thrilled," wrote Anupam Kher.
"This must be one of the only times when my friend Anil Kapoor was in the background," he added. Anupam Kher and Anil Kapoor, co-stars of films like Karma, 1942: A Love Story, Vijay, Lamhe, Heer Ranjha, Ram Lakhan, Tezaab and Parinda, share a good rapport.
