Anupam Kher shares memory of how he ‘broke the barricade, jumped on the stage’ to meet this iconic singer

MUMBAI: An unprecedented fan frenzy swept the country when pop icon Michael Jackson came to Mumbai in 1996 for his maiden performance. Actor Anupam Kher was also a die-hard fan and ‘broke the barricade’ to meet him.

Sharing pictures of himself shaking hands with Michael, Anupam shared the epic anecdote on Instagram. “Story of this picture!! When Michael Jackson visited India in 1996 a group of selected people were invited to meet him exclusively at Oberoi hotel gardens. I was also the lucky one. Thanks to Bharat Bhai Shah. There was a small stage set up in the garden with a barricade for the special guests. MJ walked down from his suite and stood on the improvised stage with his bodyguards. There was silence and a sense of awe among the selected guests,” he wrote.

Anupam said that in his fanboy moment, he broke the barricade, jumped on the stage and was almost thrown out by Michael’s bodyguards. “I was looking at this magician who had enthralled and hypnotised the entire universe with his electrifying performances. He was just a few feet away from me. I wanted to capture this moment. So I broke the barricade, jumped on the stage and almost hugged MJ. The bodyguards rushed towards me and before they could pick me up bodily Bharat Bhai Shah in panic introduced me to Michael Jackson as the biggest actor in India. He immediately and politely bent down and shook a jubilant me’s hands,” he wrote.

Have a look.
