On his recent visit to Los Angeles for the Academy Awards, actor Anupam Kher (who is in Silver Linings Playbook), was honoured by Herb J. Wesson Jr, President Los Angeles City Council and Tom Labonge, Council Member 4th District, with a City Proclamation at Los Angeles City Hall.
In a media statement Anupam went on to say, “It is a big event because I am being honoured as an actor, and not only as an Indian actor. The Proclamation from the City of Los Angeles would be an endorsement of the fact that Asian actors are not seen as peculiar phenomena on a global platform. Of course, most of my films are Indian and I am an Indian actor. It was given to me on the same day as they gave it to the legendary Dick Van Dyke.”

Aren’t you just green with envy?! Well done Anupam… you made India proud!
