If you are one of those who read and feed the financial dailies, then the name of James Crabtree will surely ring a bell. Well, that equation is soon going to be changed as James Crabtree (the Mumbai Bureau Chief of the London-based newspaper 'Financial Times') is now all set to make his grand Bollywood debut in Kick, a film that stars none other than Salman Khan himself!
James' entry into Bollywood is not less than a typical Bollywood Masala potboiler. Buzz is that when Sajid Nadiadwala (the film's producer) was desperately looking for an actor to play the role of a British diplomat, Chetan Bhagat (who has written the script of Kick
) suggested the name of his friend James. Since he was a huge Bollywood buff, James wasted no time in thinking and quickly lapped up the offer. Talking about his role, a visibly excited James said that he plays the role of a British diplomat working in the Indian Embassy of London, who also happens to be the father of Salman's lady love.
James' only regret is that he didn't get a chance to share screen space with Salman Khan.
