I’m back in Delhi now and working hard on curating my images from the last month and a half in Rishikesh as well as my recent trip to Agra (home of the Taj Mahal).
I just have to take a break from that work and write a quick post to share the experience of my Bollywood debut. I will be starring as a Welsh wrestling coach in the film Dangal (Disney Studio India), which is slated for release in late 2016. The sports biopic is based on the story of a father who taught his two daughter wrestling. The daughters won the gold and silver medals in the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
I became involved after being solicited at my ashram in Rishikesh by a production team responsible for casting Westerners for the film. I was just an extra but it was a really interesting experience being on set. Plus, really great catered Indian food!
Here’s a picture of me in costume. Be sure to look out for this Welsh coach on the sideline when you see the film!
