Kabir Bedi is a star who has acted in both Hollywood and Indian pictures. He is particularly famous for his role in the Italian serial for TV, ‘Sandokhan’. In Hollywood his roles in ‘Octopussy’ and ‘Ashanti’ stand out. Unfortunately after almost 3 decades in Hindi films Kabir never struck it rich in terms of roles and billing, though as an actor he was simply great. Kabir is handsome and muscular and witha beard looks dynamic, but he never got the proper breaks. Even his presentation of the TV serial ‘Guns and Glory’ was not much to rave about.
In contrast he was a greater hit outside India and the Italians loved him and and the Italian President has now honored him with their highest civilian award for his role as Sandokhan in the TV serial. Kabir is I feel guilty of a lapse as he has concentrated more on his 4 marriaages and love affairs than on his career. Only if he had worked harder he could have been a hit.
