"Thank you all for your best wishes on Kirron Kher, BJP's victory in Chandigarh. It is so humbling. I am sure she will make a difference," he tweeted.

Kirron emerged victorious in Chandigarh, defeating not only former railway minister Pawan Kumar Bansal of the Congress but also actress-turned-politician Gul Panag of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

While Kirron got over 42 percent votes, Bansal and Panag got nearly 27 and 24 percent, respectively.

Anupam was by his wife's side during the poll campaign.
