Anupam Kher and Sir Ben Kingsley honoured with The Asian Awards

Actor Anupam Kher was honoured at third edition of The Asian Awards at 'The Grosvenor House Hotel' last night in London along with Sir Ben Kingsley, Nicole Scherzinger and Hollywood legend Bruce Lee. Kher was awarded with the Outstanding Achievement in Cinema. Kher has famously crossed over into western cinema, most recently SILVER LININGS 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 career. Global icon, Bruce Lee was honoured with the prestigious Founders Award, for his impact and influence on western cinema, and also to mark the 40th anniversary of his death. The award ceremony was hosted by Lord Sebastian Coe, the man billed as one of the masterminds behind the London 2012 Olympics.

Kher says, "I am truly humbled and honoured for being awarded The Asian Award for my work as an actor. As an actor 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 does understand 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 the same year as Sir Ben Kingsley. Makes me feel very proud!"

The nods are the only event in the U.K. calendar celebrating achievements of individuals originating from the Asian continent including those living in U.K., India, China, Japan, Korea, Singapore and other South and Far East countries, across entrepreneurialism, the arts and public life.

Previous Asian award honourees from the world of entertainment include some of Asia's leading figures, including Sachin Tendulkar, Muttiah Muralitharan, Asha Bhosle, Jay Sean, AR Rahman, Ratan Tata.
