Anu­pam Kher, who we have seen es­say a va­ri­ety of roles took on a com­pletely new one while he penned down a book ti­tled, The Best Thing About You Is You! in 2011. The ac­tor put pen to paper to draw lessons from his per­sonal life that could in­spire his read­ers and it seems the idea worked as he made it to Richtopia’s The 200 Most In­flu­en­tial Au­thors. Ranked 6th on the list, the ac­tor turned-au­thor shares this men­tion with ac­claimed writ­ers such as JK Rowl­ing, Paulo Coelho, Michael Moore, John Green and EL James. The list has also fea­tured a few big names from In­dia such as HRH Dalai Lama, Amitabh Bachchan and Shashi Tharoor. The book was a best­seller as soon as it hit the shelves and has been passed on to Kher’s co-stars in the Os­car­win­ning, Sil­ver Lin­ings Play­book (2012), Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper and Jen­nifer Lawrence. Among his other Hol­ly­wood friends who re­ceived the book are Rus­sell Peters, Ar­mie Ham­mer, Ger­ard But­ler and Dev Pa­tel. Talk­ing about it Kher says, “I am hum­bled at the hon­our of this men­tion. I’m glad that I am in the com­pany of such great au­thors. I hope the book con­tin­ues to reach out to read­ers look­ing for in­spi­ra­tion.”
