Amidst the shooting schedule for his forthcoming Hollywood movie “The Headhunters Calling”, veteran Bollywood actor Anupam Kher celebrated the production wrapping of the movie on by hosting a party for the cast and crew of the film in Toronto.
The highly anticipated movie, starring Gerard Butler in the lead role, finished major filming in Toronto. Kher threw a lavish party on Saturday night for all at an Italian restaurant Sotto Sotto, a popular Toronto celebrity hotspot.
The 60-year-old “Baby” actor very carefully planned the menu as well.
The guest list included William Dafoe, Alfred Molina, child star Maxwell Jenkins, film director Mark Williams, producers Alan Siegel, Nicolas Chartier, Craig Flores, Danielle Robinson and screenplay writer-producer Bill Dubuque.
“It has been a wonderful experience to work with such an acclaimed cast and crew. The script is simply awesome and is bound to touch everybody’s chords. Actor Gerard Butler developed a great rapport with me and announced me as ‘Friends for Ever’ during his speech at the party,” Kher told PTI.
“It gave me an immense pleasure to host an exclusive dinner for a very fabulous cast and crew and my Indian culture has taught me to create lasting bonds wherever I go’,” he added.
The film centres on ruthless corporate headhunter Dane Jensen (Butler), who works at Blackridge Recruiting arranging jobs for engineers. He is on his way to achieving his longtime work goal of taking over the company, when his ten-year-old son falls ill and his personal and professional priorities clash.
