Anupam Kher is a master entertainer. Be it his versatile acting chops or his entertaining and thought-provoking videos on his social media, he never ceases to amaze us. But did you know that he is a fan of the legendary pop icon, Michael Jackson? The actor posted pictures of him with the late pop star and shared a story from when he met him in India.

Anupam Ji shared that when Michael Jackson visited India in 1996, he was one of the lucky ones to be invited to meet him exclusively. He reminisces how there was so much awe among the guests as MJ came and stood in-front of them. Amazed at seeing “the magician” who had enthralled him with his music, Anupam Ji says that he couldn’t help but take the leap. So, he broke the barricades, only to be met by MJ’s bodyguards. But his friend on stage introduced him as ‘India’s biggest actor’, saving him from their hands. He then had a very brief but memorable few minutes with Michael Jackson, who shook his hands. The actor says that his moment of spontaneity gave him a life-long memory that he will always cherish.

Here is his post:
