Kher began his acting career with Aagman (1982) that went largely unnoticed. He was noticed first in his second movie, Saaransh (1984), where he played a retired middle class Maharashtrian man who lost his son at the age of 28. Kher has gone on to play several comic roles, such as his role in Apna Sapna Money Money (2007), and villainous roles, such as that of Dr. Dang in Karma (1986). Kher is currently shooting for The Dirty Politics, which also features Om Puri and Jackie Shroff.
