“I consciously decided two years back that I will start from the scratch. When I came to New York, I consciously decided that I will forget what I have done all these years, let people remember that. I am thankful to all that but I will start from scratch,” Anupam told IANS.

“From that point of view, it is my second year in the industry, and I still have a lot to do. I am proud of my past, my work but I am not the person who will live on laurels of what I have achieved. Or let”s say that two years back I decided that after interval, now the journey starts. I have the knowledge. I have the wisdom of what I have learnt all these years and I can apply that to what I am going to do. I am happy the kind of person I have turned out to be … That is the most important thing,” he added.

The “New Amsterdam” star continued: “Success is not what you have achieved as your laurels or your awards… Success is what you have achieved as a person and whether you can motivate other people or become an example of that for other people.”

“I treat my birthday as a way of expressing my gratitude to people have helped me get here, people who gave me happiness, to my parents, to my loved ones and friends. I treat my birthday as a gratitude day rather than having parties.”
