Anupam makes a promise to Vanshika
Anupam asked Vanshika if she wants to become an actor when she grew up. She replied, “I don’t know about that.” Anupam said, “If you ever want to be an actor, not only I will train you personally as an actor, as a teacher, I will also launch you in a film.” Vanshika laughed and Anupam replied, “Seriously. But right now, you need to study.” Talking about her recent exams, Vanshika said that she didn’t do very well in Maths and English but in Hindi, she scored good marks. The duo then spoke in Hindi.
Anupam and Vanshika talk about Satish
When asked in which language she spoke with Satish Kaushik, Vanshika laughed and said, “Hinglish.” Anupam laughed at this saying he knew what she meant. The actor recalled neither he nor Satish knew English when they met in 1975.
Anupam asked Vanshika what she misses the most about her father. She replied, “When he used to come back from films and whenever he was at home at night, when he would go to some function I would stop him. He mostly would go at 10 or 11 o clock. Before I go to sleep for my school I used to tell him to tell me stories, that was like when I was small. He used to tell me Tom and Jerry stories, he used to make all of them up. He used to say his adventure stories.”
Anupam to host Vanshika’s birthday
During their conversation, Vanshika said that she will turn 11 years old on July 15. When Anupam asked what gift she wanted, Vanshika said that she only wanted him to come to the party. Anupam said that he will host a party for Vanshika. Calling herself a ‘big Taylor Swift fan’, Vanshika added, “I like two songs of hers–Love Story and Blank Space.” She also sang a song.
Sharing the post, Anupam wrote, “Last week my dearest darling #VanshikaKaushik came to meet me at my office at @actorprepares. We talked about millions of things. Like school, studies, being an actor, make-up, hairstyles, @taylorswift and of course her papa and my dearest friend #Satish. We could have spoken for hours. She is a bright and beautiful kid! And I love her so much. So much to learn from her. Love and prayers always (red heart emojis).”
