“On my way to Los Angeles for the shoot of an exciting film (512th). And of course for SAG awards. Looking forwarding to reuniting with the wonderful team of ‘The Big Sick’ movie,” Anupam tweeted.
Directed by Michael Showalter, “The Big Sick” is about the real life story of comedian Kumail Nanjiani, who not just features in the lead role but has also penned the film’s screenplay with wife Emily Gordon.
It also stars Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter, Ray Romano and Adeel Akhtar apart from Anupam.
The film is loosely based on the real-life romance between Nanjiani and Gordon. It follows an interracial couple who must deal with cultural differences after Emily (played by Kazan in the film) becomes ill.
On the home front, Anupam will next be seen in “The Accidental Prime Minister”, “Aiyaary” and “Hotel Mumbai”. (IANS)
