Now this is how to launch brunch.

Anupam Kher, star of about 400 Bollywood films, is in town to appear with Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper in the David O. Russell flick in production, The Silver Linings Playbook.

Kher stopped for brunch, unannounced, at the new Avenue of the Arts restaurant Tashan, and visited with owner Munish Narula and his family. He posed for photos with starstruck fans.

Kher, who has worked with such directors as Ang Lee and Woody Allen, has appeared in The Mistress of Spices, Bend It Like Beckham and The Other End of the Line.
