Anupam Kher Honoured At The Asian Awards In London

Actor Anupam Kher was honoured at the third edition of 'The Asian Awards' at The Grosvenor House Hotel last night in London along with Sir Ben Kingsley, Nicole Scherzinger and the late Hollywood legend Bruce Lee. Kher was awarded for Outstanding Achievement in Cinema.

He has famously crossed over into western cinema, most recently Silver Linings Playbook with Robert DeNiro and Bradley Cooper, and is a proud ambassador for Asians in world cinema.

The coveted Fellowship Award went to Kingsley, who collected the award for his outstanding five-decade-long career. Global icon Bruce Lee was honoured with the prestigious Founders Award, for his impact and influence on western cinema and to mark his 40th death anniversary. The award ceremony was hosted by Lord Sebastian Coe, the man billed as one of the masterminds behind the London 2012 Olympics.

Talking about receiving this award, Kher said, “I am truly humbled and honoured for being awarded 'The Asian Award' for my work as an actor. As actors, all we do and want to do is make people laugh, cry, and persuade many other emotions by our craft. Our achievement at the end of the day is when the audience really understands what we are doing. And the best part is when the spectrum is not India but Asia and the awards are not only for the category of cinema, but other fields too.  It is also an honour to be given this award in the same year as Sir Ben Kingsley. Makes me feel very proud!”

Previous Asian award honourees include Sachin Tendulkar, Muttiah Muralitharan, Asha Bhosle, Jay Sean, A. R. Rahman and Ratan Tata.
