“It’s extraordinary to be here. We’ve been in India around three times before but this is our first time in Goa.” Douglas said. “When I was with the University of Santa Barbara in the 1960s, I remember taking a film class there and Satyajit Ray was one of the directors we talked with,” he added.

Speaking about Bollywood, the actor said, “It is an incredible industry. Indian films are now travelling more internationally to other countries. And with the shift from celluloid to digital in the last 10-15 years, it has become possible to transfer the old Indian classics to digital… that has been a wonderful option. And with streaming services, you’re gonna see it travel more to the rest of the world.”
