Anupam Kher said that much before his debut film 'Saaransh', he was roped for a role which required him to swim. The actor lied to the director that he knew swimming presuming that he will learn it by the time they shoot that scene. However, things turned otherwise when the director decided to shoot his first scene in the pool. As he failed miserably to deliver the performance, his lie was exposed and he was thrown out of the film on the first day itself.

Anupam Kher who remained in a distance from the pool since then finally took the plunge after 35 years. The actor took up the swimming challenge and has already had a couple of sessions with his trainer. Sharing a video of him in the pool, Anupam Kher asked 'all the great swimmers of the world' to bless him and said he will make them proud.
