Thanks to my trips to India i had an opportunity to fall in love with indian culture, meet my indian friends and then thanks to them as well I started to admire indian films. My appreciation went so far that when I am back in India I often surprise people I meet with my knowledge of indian/bollywood films and actors.
My favourite ones are Naseeruddin Shah whom I had the chance to meet in person while shooting League of extraordinary gentlemen, Shah Rukh Khan indian superstar, witty and very sympathetic guy, Deepeka Padukone, my muse and beautiful actress, Priyanka Chopra singer and actress, Ranbir Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan and of course the one and only Amitabh Bachchan.
A lot of my friends keep asking me for some reference of good indian films, for that reason I made this list of my favourite one.
