"I am special even in the world of Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan because none worked with Robert De Niro except me. I am special not because of achievements, not because of awards.
"I am special as I consider it is very important to recognise what is special," Kher said on the theme 'Bringing out the best in you' at the INFOCOM 2015, the Information & Communication Technology (ICT) summit here last night.
Kher worked with Hollywood superstsar De Niro in 'Silver Linings Playbook' in 2012. The 60-year-old actor said his achievement lies in the fact that he addressed a gathering of senior IT officials and leaders, when he himself was poor in academics in school.
Retracing his childhood days, Kher said, "I was born in a poor family. My father was a clerk in forest department in Shimla who used to earn Rs 90 per month and lived happily in a joint family.
"I was very bad in studies. Once I got 38 per cent marks. But now I am standing on stage and addressing you who are much more educated. Why? Because I chose to interpret power of myself. All of us need to do that. We need to trust ourselves," he said.
