This year’s International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards will honour the International actor Anupam Kher with their prestigious Outstanding Achievement award.

Kher has spent almost 35 years in Bollywood, presenting his best work to the audience, and leaving us in awe of his talent and potential.

Anupam Kher’s first film was Aagman that was released in 1982. He sure left everybody with the admiration of his work, but the other thing really special about this film was that he played an old man in this film at the age 28 and aced it like a pro, that too in his debut film

Kher says he is really honoured with the gesture and sees this recognition as a pat on the back to keep doing what he does in the coming years as well.

He expressed his gratitude upon being chosen for this award. He posted a picture of himself at The Culloden Estate & Spa, with the caption, “‪Thank you @iifa for deciding to honour me with Outstanding Achievement Award in Indian Cinema. I really feel humbled, honoured and thankful. I am also putting up few pics shot just now in Belfast for people who may confuse it with a #LifeTimeAchievement award. There is plenty of time for that. #AbhiToShuruaatHuiHai #JaiHo

Anupam Kher has proven his mettle, with every project he has ever been a part of, not only in Bollywood but also in Hollywood, be it Silver Linings Playbook or Bride and Prejudice or A Family Man. A recent add up to his Hollywood Movie list is The Big Sick, where Kher plays the father of a Pakistani guy who falls in love with an American graduate.
