Veteran Actor Anupam Kher, who is shooting in New York, took to his social media profile and welcomed the news of Article 370 being evoked, says it has been the best news in his life.
Anupam Kher shared a video post on his timeline. He captioned it, “I woke up today in New York to the best news of my life about Kashmir. And that too on the day my autobiography #LessonsLifeTaughtMeUnknowingly got released! What better gift, life could offer a Kashmiri boy. Thank You God, #GovtOfIndia, PM @narendramodi AND #AmitShah. Congratulations India. Jai Hind. #KuchBhiHoSaktaHai”
In the video Anupam Kher is seen saying, “Today marks a remarkable day in the history of our great nation India. The most damaging Article 370 has been abolished by Modi govt from Jammu and Kashmir. Being a Kashmiri myself, it’s an emotionally powerful moment to witness history unfold before my own eyes. In fact I am moved with sheer happiness. Article 370 was a cancer that was harming Jammu and Kashmir for last several decades. I am glad, we have finally found a cure and we now can march towards development & peace in Jammu and Kashmir”
“I would like to thank Mr. Narendra Modi Ji, and Home Minister Amit Shah ji, for such a bold move in the national interest. Let the best industrialist invest in Kashmir and make it an incredible destination for humanity, peace, and prosperity”
Union Home Minister Amit Shah moved a resolution in Rajya Sabha to abolish Article 370 of the Constitution, which accorded special status to Jammu and Kashmir, after the president issued a notification, and introduced a Bill to divide the state into two Union Territories – Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh. The Rajya Sabha approved both the resolution and the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Bill, 2019.
Meanwhile on the work front, Anupam Kher was last seen in The Accidental Prime Minister and One Day: Justice Delivered.
Next, he will be seen in Rohit Shetty directorial Sooryavanshi, also starring Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar.
