So beautiful, right? On August 26, 2018, Anupam and Kirron had completed 33 years of marital bliss. Wishing his wife on the same, The Accidental Prime Minister actor took to Twitter and wrote a heartfelt message for Kirron ji. Therein, he had shared a series of pictures of them and had written, “Happy 33rd Anniversary dearest Kirron. Thank you for your love and laughter. Thank you for your grace. It has been a great journey of ups & downs. But it has been a solid one. Many more to come. Chandigarh is lucky to have you as it’s MP @KirronKherBJP ji. Mumbai misses you.”
To give you all a little background about this couple, both Anupam and Kirron were already married when they met each other. But as per reports, they were not happy with their previous marriages and ended up being together. Speaking about the same, the Kurbaan actress had shared, “Well, I came to Bombay, I married Gautam, and we discovered that the marriage was just not happening. Anupam too had been married, and that had gone wrong. He and I were still good friends, doing plays together. I remember, we were going to Calcutta for Nadira Babbar's play, he came looking different, his head was shaved, for some film he was doing I think. When he was leaving the room, he looked back at me, and something passed between us.” (Must Read: Sonam Kapoor Ahuja Gives Kiss Of Love To Anand S Ahuja In This Video, He Can't Stop Blushing)
In an interview, Kirron Kher had recalled her proposal moment and had stated, “He came and knocked on my door, and said, "I want to talk to you." He then said "I think I have fallen in love with you." And suddenly there was this immense, intense change, the chemistry exploded. I got a divorce and married him. He had nothing then.” She had also shared, “We used to call Anupam the group’s opening batsman in college since he had several girlfriends and was very flirty. Sabko hasaa hasaa kar phasaa deta tha... mujhe bhi waise hi phasaya...we became friends first and before I knew it, I fell in love with my best friend.”
The initial years of their marriage were all about bliss. Kirron ji had a son, Sikander from her first marriage and speaking about how she managed her family life and work, she had shared, “The first ten to fifteen years we just travelled together everywhere. Sikandar -- my son from Gautam -- was still a baby, so all theatre work stopped for me. Sikandar was from a broken home, and I wanted him to be spared any trauma, did not wish him to feel rudderless. He went with us everywhere. He went with us on Anupam's shoots, his shows with Amitabh Bachchan abroad. Those were great days for Anupam, and we sailed along with him basking in the glory.”
Did you know, there was a time in Kirron ji and Anupam ji’s marriage, wherein, her success had affected him badly? Speaking about the same in an interview, “My first commercial films was Devdas. Then all the big banners that he had worked with signed me on, and he was not working with any of them. It hit him then, but I was so busy, I did not realise it. He missed the drug of being on top, of being popular. He would laugh and crack a joke about my work. He would ask: "How much did you get paid?" I was getting paid much more than he got, because times had changed, and also I am very particular about the contract. It made me realise he was reacting to my success.” She had also added, “Yes, three or four years in the middle were very bad, but it made me stronger, taught me to live with myself, travel alone. It was a lot of pain, but luckily it solved itself.”
Ever heard of the term, opposites attract? As per Kirron Kher, she and hubby, Anupam too, are total opposites! In an interview, the doting wifey had stated, “But we are total opposites. I’m a control freak and the organised one whereas he’s the calm and forgetful one. I’m always fighting with him when he forgets to put the toothpaste cap back on or when he forgets to close the bedroom door.” She had further added, “He is such a bechain buti, he cannot sit still, he will walk about, go from one thing to another, make a call, I am much calmer. Then the other differences: he needs to sleep immediately after dinner, while I like to read, unwind. He will say put off the light. Luckily now I have all my reading on my ipad, and don't need the light.” (Must Read: Sonali Bendre's Hubby, Goldie Behl Feels Privileged To Share His Life With Her Due To This Reason)
