Veteran actor Anupam Kher has congratulated the entire
cast and crew of his film "The Big Sick", which bagged the Best Comedy film at
the Critics Choice Award.
"Congratulations to the entire cast and crew of 'The Big Sick' for winning the Best Comedy at the Critics Choice Awards. Jai Ho," Anupam tweeted on Friday.
"The Big Sick" is a romantic comedy directed by Michael Showalter. It stars Kumail Nanjiani, 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.
The film had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2017.
