Remembering his debut movie, Anupam wrote on Twitter, "My 1st film #Saaransh was released on 25th May, 1984. I complete 36 years in the world of entertainment today. It has been an incredible journey so far. God has been kind. And you, my audiences have given me so much love. THANK YOU!! #36YearsOfAnupam #KuchBhiHoSaktaHai."

Director Mahesh Bhatt too celebrated 36 years of the film as he wrote, "36 years of SAARANSH! He was just 28 years old when he made his debut in this iconic role of a school teacher who has lost his son in an act of senseless violence. Thank you, Anupam for helping me birth this heartbreaking inspired creation. @AnupamPKher #Saaransh."

Expressing his gratitude to Mahesh, Anupam replied to his tweet, "Thank you @MaheshNBhatt Saab for your faith, generosity, kindness and love. I would've never had this kind of journey if my first film was not #Saaransh. It changed my life and me. #36YearsOfAnupam proudly. Jai Ho!!"
