Anupam Kher attended the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in 2012 for the premiere of his Hollywood film Silver Linings Playbook, which also starred Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. He is now set to attend the festival yet again, this time for the premiere of his new film, The Headhunter’s Calling, which stars Gerard Butler.
The movie, which has been directed by Mark Williams and written by Bill Dubuque of The Judge fame (2014), will see Anupam in the role of an Indian-American pediatric oncologist. The premiere will take place on September 14.
“I’m part of the film’s main cast, and have an interesting role. It is an honour that our movie is being premiered at such a prestigious festival.
It is a proud moment for me in particular, because whenever I am part of such events, I feel that I’m there as a representative of India. This makes me even happier. Also, it is great that this is my second international film that is being premiered at such a huge event,” says Anupam.
The actor, who has earlier worked in international films such as Bend It Like Beckham (2002) and Bride And Prejudice (2004), among others, says he’s “looking forward” to attending the event.
