Background of the play
Kuch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai is known the world over as an autobiographical play about the life and times of actor Anupam Kher. The show was conceived during a time when the actor was going through the lowest point in his life. Even though the worldview was that he was a happening actor in actuality he wason the verge of bankruptcy. Anupam’s accountant informed him that his overarching ambitious plan of wanting to expand his business as a media tycoon was a pipe dream since he had a mere INR 4,000 in his account. He could not borrow anymore funds and as he searched his soul for answers he remembered his father’s words that a failure is an event – never a person!
Anupam decided then to enact a play on the failures of his life and use the stage as a platform. The debut show was held on the 8th of August 2005, at the Sophia Auditorium in Mumbai. In a bold move he invited all the people mentioned in the play, from the circle of family, friends and also folks from the film industry who had featured in his life.
It was called Kuch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai (Anything is Possible) because it was the phrase that aptly summed up the actor’s life. The opening night performance got a never-ending standing ovation. The audiences were not only applauding him as a stage actor but were also celebrating his courage to talk about his failures publicly. The play not only gave him a financial breather, but it also liberated him from the fear of fiasco. This added another significant facet to Anupam’s personality that of an international motivational speaker and laid the seeds of his first best-selling book The Best Thing About You Is You.
Today, Kuch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai (Anything Is Possible) is not only a play but also has attained the status of popular folklore. A possibility the world talks about.
