Anupam Kher invited to speak at TED’s first conference in Mumbai

Anupam Kher is surely one happy man today. And he has all the reasons to be so. On one hand, while his acting academy ‘Actor Prepares’ is going great guns, on the other, he is someone who is one of the most sought after persons not just in Bollywood, but in all the arenas under the sun!

The latest is in the form of an invitation from the prestigious TED, a non-profit organization, which holds an event in order to get many intellectual brains under one roof. While this event gets held every year in Oxford, UK, it was only last year that it found its Indian presence. Only recently, TED started TEDx, a program that allows professionals to share ideas that’s worth sharing. This event is being held today in Mumbai under the aegis of ‘TEDxMumbai’, which will have around 160 people, consisting of professionals from all the walks of life, including scientists, executives and students. Talking exclusively to Bollywood Hungama from the venue, Anupam Kher said, “Basically, TED is a prestigious platform where people give their ideas. Somebody had heard me speaking at Barclay Bank’s conference. That’s when they approached me for TED. I was honored and surprised at this offer as TED forms a very interesting stage for sharing of ideas. Normally, only scientists and philosophers can be seen here. But here I was…an actor. This time round, it was not for acting, but for my belief in the ‘Power In You’, to which, I strongly spoke about the fact that the power in you is much more powerful that the person outside you.” When we asked him about the overall experience of TED, Anupam just summed it up in two words, “Fabulous and rejuvenating”.
