Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor feels Anupam Kher-starrer "Silver Linings Playbook" is the front-runner for an Oscar nomination.

"He (Anupam Kher) has been a kind of an actor who has been an integral part of so many films, like 'Hum Aapke Hain Kaun', 'Ram Lakhan', 'Beta', 'Saaransh', and 'Daddy'. Then 'Bend It Like Beckham' and now 'Silver Linings Playbook', which I am confidently saying is the frontrunner for nomination for the Oscar," the 52-year-old said at the Mumbai Film Festival Thursday evening.

The actor himself was part of the Oscar winning movie "Slumdog Millionaire".

The 14th Mumbai Film Festival opened with "Silver Linings Playbook". Directed by David O. Russell, the film sees Anupam as an Indian doctor and the cast includes Hollywood big names Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert Di Niro and Chris Tucker.

Meanwhile, the Mumbai Film Festival has joined hands with A.A. Khan, a former deputy inspector general of police who once headed the Maharashtra ATS (Anti-Terrorism Squad), to fight against film piracy.

Anil said he too is trying to fight piracy in his won way and added: "Even I am, to a certain extent, trying to do whatever I can, in my own capacity because I am bringing '24' in India so obviously we have to try to protect the content as much as possible."

"We are trying our best. There is technology in India...by the time it becomes digital, it will be much more easier to curb and control piracy," he added.

Anil played an Islamic leader Omar Hassan in the eighth episodes of the TV show "24", an American political thriller.
