Anupam Kher-starrer 'New Amsterdam' premiers today

New Delhi 

Inspired by the oldest public hospital in the US, the unique medical drama series, ‘New Amsterdam’, starring prolific actor and motivational speaker Anupam Kher, will premier on NBC at prime time Tuesday. Kher, the BAFTA and SAG nominee, who has been shooting for the series for several weeks in New York, is not new to western audiences because of his roles in Golden Globe-nominated "Bend it like Beckham", Oscar-nominated "Silver Linings Playbook" and the highly-acclaimed film, "The Big Sick".

He is now going to be part of American lives through NBC's highly-anticipated medical drama, "New Amsterdam", where he plays the role of an Indian neurologist, Dr Vijay Kapoor. The series premiers on NBC on Tuesday, September 25, at 10 pm. The NBC series revolves around Dr Max Goodwin, played by Ryan Eggold, as he becomes the medical director of an old public hospital and pushes for life-affirming changes and reforms in the neglected facility to provide an exceptional care for patients.

About his character in the series, Kher told PTI, "Dr. Kapoor has seen the fast life, he has seen people running fast nowhere, and what centers him is this hospital. He is well read and knows what it takes to be a doctor, apart from just the 'qualifications'. I think that's the greatest quality that Dr Kapoor has."
