Mumbai, Jan 27 (IANS) Actor Anupam Kher, who plays Doctor Patel in David O Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook" (SLP), is in Los Angeles to attend the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Award (SAG) Sunday.

The cast of the Hollywood film has won the nomination for Outstanding Performance by a cast in a Motion Picture and Anupam is a part of the film along with Hollywood actors Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Tucker and Jacki Weaver.

The award function will take place at Shrine Exposition Centre in Los Angeles, reads a statement.

The 57-year-old veteran Indian actor is ecstatic and says the journey has been wonderful.

"The journey from my first film ('Aagman' 1984) to SLP has been a beautiful one. For me, the experience is similar because I felt the same kind of excitement when I did my first film...," said Anupam.

"...Now after so many years, I have slowed down and felt that I needed something to make me feel the way I did when I fought for and prayed for a role and SLP happened to me. My role in SLP may not be of the same magnitude that was in my first film, but doing this film and being around David Russell, the cast and crew gave me the same kind of thrill and satisfaction

"It was refreshing and I felt like a newcomer as no one here knew my work at all. The pressure of being Anupam Kher was not there but I could tap into the experience that I had. Being nominated for ensemble cast for such a beautiful film with such a brilliant cast brings this entire journey a full circle to me," he further added.
