Kher will get Oscar nomination: Anil

Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor feels is the front-runner for an Oscar nomination.

‘He [Anupam Kher] has been a kind of an actor who has been an integral part of so many films, like Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, Ram Lakhan, Beta, Saaransh, and Daddy. Then Bend It Like Beckham and now Silver Linings Playbook, which I am confidently saying is the frontrunner in nomination for the Oscar,’ said the 52-year-old at the Mumbai Film Festival.

The 14th Mumbai Film Festival opened with Silver Linings Playbook. Directed by David O. Russell, the film sees Anupam as an Indian doctor and the cast includes Hollywood big names Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert Di Niro and Chris Tucker.

Meanwhile, the Mumbai Film Festival has joined hands  to fight against film piracy.

Anil said he too is trying to fight piracysaid: ‘Even I am, to a certain extent, trying to do whatever I can, in my own capacity...’

Anil played an Islamic leader Omar Hassan in the eighth episodes of the TV show 24, an American political thriller.
