Bollywood actor Anupam Kher on Saturday met former Finance Minister Arun Jaitley at his residence here and inquired about his health.
Expressing happiness over his meeting, the actor tweeted: "Just met Arun Jaitley ji at his residence! It is always a pleasure and a learning experience to spend time with him. His vast knowledge on any subject is awe inspiring. Was glad to see him healthy and happy. Also got to eat the most delicious bread samosa."
Owing to his health issues, the 66-year-old politician opted out of the Cabinet and was not seen at the victory celebrations at the BJP headquarters after the party stormed to power with a massive victory by winning 303 seats in the Lok Sabha polls.
Talking about Anupam Kher ,the actor is coming out with his autobiography, "Lessons Life Taught Me Unknowingly" that is set to hit stands on August 5.
Publishers Penguin Random House said the book will be an "extraordinary, riveting and no-holds-barred saga" in which Kher will make some behind-the-scenes revelations, and share anecdotes and rare nuggets from his life and the lessons it taught him.
The 64-year-old actor started his career with films such as "Saaransh" and "Daddy" in India, and went on to feature in mainstream Hollywood films such as "Silver Linings Playbook", "Hotel Mumbai", "The Big Sick" and "The Family Man" and has worked with directors such as Ang Lee, David O. Russell, Woody Allen, Gurinder Chadha and Lana and Lilly Wachowski.
Presently, the actor shuttles between Mumbai and New York where he is one of the lead actors on the recently premiered hit TV show "New Amsterdam" on NBC Entertainment Channel.
The book is expected to offer a kaleidoscopic peep into the life and times of the actor and the entertainer that Kher is.
"He has always been distinct and offbeat. His autobiography is, too... For it is not just another chronological account of his life. It is, in fact, also peppered with incredible life lessons that are bound to resonate with every aspiring artiste and, most of all, the common man," Penguin added
