He is a versatile actor and successful too, but Anupam Kher says he enjoys teaching more than acting.
The actor, who turned 59 Friday, runs acting institute Actor Prepares.
"I love teaching more than I love acting. It's great to give out than to take from others. There is no syllabus for acting and it's a great feeling. I also get to learn a lot from the new generation," said Anupam.
From serious role in "Saraansh", villain in "Karma" or funny man in "Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin", the actor proved his versatility in the beginning of his career and he maintained it in his over three decades long career. In the last few years he was seen in different kinds of roles in "Maine Gandhi Ko Nahin Mara", "A Wednesday" and "Total Siyappa".
He said: "l always wanted to be different. I even broke the myth of getting typecast. I did all kinds of roles. My competition was with myself."
