HOUSTON: Bollywood actor Anupam Kher has been awarded for his commendable contribution to cinema and art globally in Naveda with the US state’s most populous city Las Vegas declaring September 10 as ‘Anupam Kher Day’. Kher was presented with the ‘Certificate of Excellence’ on September 10 in Las Vegas by Nevada Senator Ruben Kihuen who praised the 60-year-old veteran actor for providing quality entertainment. “Thank you for bringing such an extraordinary performance to Las Vegas and various other cities around USA. It has been an honour to meet and watch the cinematic genius live on stage,” Ruben, who declared September 10 as Anupam Kher Day, said. Kher has been honoured with various awards and recognition for his contribution to cinema and art following a resounding success of the repeat show of his play Mera Matlab Woh Nahin Tha here and back-to-back shows in 20 other US cities and in Canada. “It is said that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas,” an excited Kher told PTI. But this honour by the State of Nevada will not stay only in Vegas but will travel to the world and to my beloved country and prove my philosophy of “life mein kuch bhi ho sakta hai”, he said.
