Day 2 of the 49th edition of the International Film Festival of India witnessed mingling of international actors and filmmakers who interacted with the media and shared their thoughts about being in the festival and their movies that made it to the festival this year.
As much elated he was to be in Goa, Chin Han shared his delight to meet Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar at the opening ceremony with the media. “It was indeed great to meet Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar because for me if I think Bollywood, I think SRK.” Chin Han is a Singaporean-American actor who is known for his role in Master of the Sea, Singapore television’s first foray into English language. He has also been named as one of the Asia’s 25 greatest actors. He expressed his joy to see Asian faces in Hollywood even when Hollywood is not ‘the ultimate destination’ for him. “Hollywood is obviously significant but not the ultimate destination. It’s important that the whole industry moves ahead at the same time – right from the actors, to directors, designers and artists. I’m always happy to see Asian faces in Hollywood. It was good to see Priyanka Chopra in Baywatch and Deepika Padukone in XXX. India has a wealth of talent with a rich and acclaimed history of Indian cinema.”, said Chin Han who also turns 49 like the festival, in next couple of days. Chin sounded ecstatic to be in Goa and told that being in coastal city, IFFI reminded him of Cannes.
