Veteran Bollywood actor Anupam Kher on Thursday completed 40 years in Mumbai and marked the day by visiting the first house he lived in, in Bandra's Kherwadi area.
The 'Saaransh' actor shared his inspiring story with his fans and revealed that he used to share the house with four other people.
Reflecting back on his journey , Anupam wrote: "My 40 years in Mumbai. I landed in the ‘city of dreams’, Mumbai on the 3rd June, 1981 to try my luck in Indian Cinema. This city has been extremely kind to me. From a nobody it allowed me to become somebody. Last week I went to the place I first lived in. I go their often. I shared my small room with four other people! But my address was literally an eye opener and an indicator of what was going to follow. The only thing required out of me was hard work. Thank you 2/15, Kherwadi for giving me a roof! You will always remain my most special and iconic address. #40YearsInMumbai #AllDreamsComeTrue #CityOfDreams #Life #Cinema #Mumbai #518Films #KuchBhiHoSaktaHai."
In the video, Anupam is seen meeting and greeting the residents of the locality.

Kher recently completed 37 years in Bollywood.
Talking about his journey, Anupam said, "I was an insecure person at that time (when the journey started) because I didn't have a place to stay, but I was never an insecure actor because I had done four years' training from the best schools. I have done mundane, stupid films but I own all of them with pride. I own all of my insignificant work because that was part of my journey."
The actor has played over 500 characters after making his debut with Mahesh Bhatt's 1984 film 'Saaransh'.
Kher has also tried his luck in Hollywood, of course, notably working with Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence in the multiple Oscar-nominated film 'Silver Linings Playbook', and has forayed American television world with the medical drama show 'New Amsterdam', which he bid adieu to earlier this year.
