Known for making comments on current issues of the country, Kher reiterated that he would not join politics at all.
To a question, he said his wife Kirron Kher is better know. The BJP MP from Chandigarh, Kirron Kher, is suffering from blood cancer. Anupam Kher said there are several side-effects of chemotherapy but her will-power is "very strong".
