Veteran actor Anupam Kher on Tuesday launched his latest book titled ‘Your Best Day Is Today’ at Natraj Publishers here in Dehradun and said the ‘COVID-19 pandemic caught humankind like a deer in the headlights.’
The ‘Saraansh’ star talked about the coronavirus pandemic and how it has affected
people around the world.
“The Covid-19 pandemic is considered as the most crucial global health calamity of
the twenty-first century. It caught humankind like a deer in the headlights. All
across the globe, people were unprepared to face this disease head-on,” said Kher.
Sharing about how the infection gave birth to the political and socio-economic
crisis – all around the world.
“Apart from enduring the impact of the socio-economic and political crisis, we had
to deal with the consequences of staying inside our homes without knowing what
the future held for us. The severity of this disease forced us all to become
homebodies,” shared the ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ star.
In the senior actor’s thinking, this phase has reminded us that we must strive to
find pleasure in life’s simplicity.
Kher said, “I am delighted to release his first-ever copy at the oldest bookstore of
Dehradun. He emphasized the need to rethink, reboot, and reset the button, and
having done that we shouldn’t mess it up. In his interaction with the media, he said
I am an optimist and was enjoying his visit to Dehradun as he himself hails from a
Shimla another small hill station.”
At the event, the 65-year-old star remembered some interesting anecdotes from his
childhood with everyone present at the event.
Kher’s energetic presence in the bookshop filled everyone with a sense of
the spontaneity that had been lost in the last few months of the current crisis.
