Anupam Kher gave up the chance to be present at the 70th Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles on January 13 for the sake of promoting his new Hindi release Special 26. It certainly wasn't an easy decision to make for Kher as David O Russell, the director of the multi-nominated film Silver Linings Playbook, kept insisting that Anupam join the team in L.A for the awards. Says Anupam, "I've always said Hindi cinema is my first priority. Special 26 needed me. So I am skipping the Golden Globe Awards. But I'll be in L.A for the Screen Actors' Guild Awards on January 27 and the Oscars on February 24" Explains Anupam, "Special 26 is a very special film directed by a very special director Neeraj Pandey. Neeraj gave me a chance to be in his first film A Wednesday. I couldn't let him down in his second film. I had to skip the Golden Globe Awards. »
