Veteran Bollywood actor Anupam Kher’s film The Headhunter’s Calling, which features Scottish actor Gerard Butler in a key role, will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
Kher, who has been honoured with Padma Bhushan, shared the news on his Twitter handle along with a video.
“My film ‘The Headhunter’s Calling’ with Gerard Butler is premiering at Toronto Int Film Festival,” Anupam wrote.
In the accompanying video, the actor says: “I came to the city of Mumbai on June 3, 1981, with Rs 37 in my pocket, which is half a dollar and I can say that I have done fairly well.”
“I want to share a great news with you that my film The ‘Headhunter’s Calling’ which also stars Gerard Butler and Willem Dafoe, has been selected at International film festival at Toronto.”
Gerard James Butler has appeared on film, stage, and television. After studying law, Butler turned to acting in the mid-1990s with small roles in productions such as Mrs Brown, the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies, and Tale of the Mummy. In 2000, he starred as Dracula in the horror film Dracula 2000 with Christopher Plummer and Jonny Lee Miller. He played Attila the Hun in the miniseries Attila.
By citing the example of how a “Rs 37 guy from Mumbai will be attending a film festival”, he wanted to convey: “If that can happen, then anything can happen. Kuch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai. Jai Ho.” – CINEWS
