MUMBAI: British actor Alex Reece who has acted in Hollywood flicks is also known for his appearance in a mega-budget James Bond commercial starring Daniel Craig. But when the actor decided to do Indian movies, he wasn’t sure he would be welcomed in the industry.
His skepticism has been proved wrong by popular Bollywood and Punjabi cinema star Diljit Dosanjh, with whom Alex made his debut playing the villain in the recently released Punjabi film Sajjan Singh directed by Pankaj Batra.
Impressed with Alex’s work as the negative lead, Diljit, who plays the title role of Sajjan Singh in the film, called Alex a very good actor on Instagram. He also praised him in his tweet, saying, “Alex, you are our fav.”
On his tweet, Alex said, “I was really touched by his gesture. Diljit is such a fine actor, an out and out charmer. A popular star like him praising me publicly has made me feel very comfortable on my new innings in the Indian industry.”
Apart from the stellar performances by its star cast, the period film has been praised for its authenticity as it accurately depicts the anguish and turmoil of soldiers of a Sikh regiment fighting for the British Army during World War I. Diljit’s fans are expecting the film to be dubbed and released in Hindi soon.
Meanwhile, Alex is taking Hindi lessens and wants to exploit the void of the ‘bura gora’ aka the white-skinned baddie in Bollywood next. Revealing his deam, Alex said, “I’m told that after Bob Christo and Tom Alter, there is a void of actors playing the white baddie in Bollywood. Maybe, I can explore to fill it.”
