“Happy birthday dearest @sikandarkher ! May God give you all the happiness, success, peace, long and healthy life. I am glad we have never been a typical father/son duo. Growing up (as a person) with you has been amazing. I may not admit often or openly but I have learnt so many things from you. And I am proud of you the way you are making your choices as an actor. Have a great year,” wrote Anupam Kher. Adding a question from his mother, Anupam Kher added, “ पर शादी कब कर रहा है? (When are you getting married) This is from #Dulari? Love you! #HappyBirthday #SikandarKher #Love #Blessings.”
Previously, during a live conducted by Sikander, Kirron Kher had made a rare appearance and expressed that her wish to have a daughter-in-law to whom she can give her sarees and jewellery to. During the live chat, Sikander expressed his disappointment that Kirron did not have a daughter. He said, “This is so sad. I feel bad sometimes, mom, that you didn’t have a daughter. Because you have such beautiful stuff for a daughter”. To which the veteran actress replied, “I feel really bad. You are not getting married. Main kitni dafa sochti hoon ki main kya karoon, kisko doon, kaun pehnega (I often think what will I wish with my stuff, who will wear it).” Sikander was quick to reply, “Main pehnunga aapki saariyan aur jewellery. Main pehnunga, maa kasam. (I will wear your sarees and jewellery).”
In 2016, Sikandar Kher got enagaged to Priya Singh, Sonam Kapoor’s cousin. However soon after the couple called off their relationship owing to ‘compatibility issues’.
