Actor Anupam Kher might have done over 450 films in Bollywood but the actor said that he approached his critically acclaimed Hollywood movie ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ as a new comer.
“I have done more than 450 films but I approached this film as a newcomer as if it was my first film because I don't think in English... I think in Hindi. For me to be a therapist with technical words, I had to concentrate, focus,” said Anupam Kapoor, who played role of therapist Dr Patel in the film.
“Maybe it was not so difficult to get a sense of awe from them that I have done so many movies. But to earn their respect I had to be good in my job. Sometimes when you work in a film like this it feels you are representing your country and it is that kind of a feeling," he added.
The actor is elated that the movie not only received high critical praise but also very successful commercially crossing the 100 million dollar-mark.
“The film has crossed a $100 million and it makes me very happy because these days we all are talking about 100 crore. So here is a film which I have done that has reached a landmark of $100 Million," the actor, who plays Dr Patel in the film, said.
‘Silver Linings Playbook’, directed by David O Russell and starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, with Robert De Niro, Jacki Weaver, Chris Tucker and Julia Stiles in supporting roles, bagged 8 Academy Awards nominations.
Though the movie lost out to ‘Argo’ for the Best Motion Picture Award, actress Jennifer Lawrence grabbed her first Best Actress Oscar Award for her performance in the movie.
