Anupam Kher is a master entertainer. Whether it is his versatile performances or his entertaining and thought-provoking videos on his social media, he never ceases to amaze us. But do you know that he is a fan of veteran pop icon Michael Jackson. The actor posted pictures of her with the late pop star and shared the story of meeting her in India.
Anupam Kher shared that when Michael Jackson visited India in 1996, he was one of the lucky ones to be specially invited to meet him. He reminds of how terrified the guests were as Michael Jackson came and stood in front of them. Surprised to see “The magician” who had mesmerized him with his music, Anupam Kher says that he cannot help but leap. Therefore, he broke only barricades from Michael Jackson bodyguards. But his friend on stage introduced him as ‘India’s greatest actor’, leaving his hands. He then made a very brief but memorable few minutes with Michael Jackson, who shook his hand. The actor says that his spontaneity gave him a lifetime memory that he will always cherish.

Story of this picture!! When Michael Jackson visited India in 1996 a group of selected people were invited to meet him exclusively at Oberoi hotel gardens. I was also the lucky one. Thanks to Bharat Bhai Shah. There was a small stage set up in the garden with a barricade for the special guests. MJ walked down from his suite and stood on the improvised stage with his bodyguards. There was silence and sense of awe among the selected guests. I was looking at this magician who had enthralled and hypnotised the entire universe with his electrifying performances. He was just few feet away from me. I wanted to capture this moment. So I broke the barricade jumped on the stage and almost hugged MJ. The bodyguards rushed towards me and before they could pick me up bodily Bharat Bhai Shah in panic introduced me to Michael Jackson as the biggest actor in India. He immediately and politely bent down and shook a jubilant me’s hands. And my history was captured in this picture. Sometimes you have to make an effort to create Kucch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai moments. Jai Ho!! 😍😍😎🤓 Pic courtesy my friend @timmins.andre. #MichaelJackson #Overwhelming
