Kabir Bedi is a star from India, who had a degree of success in the West in both Hollywood and TV serials

Kabir Bedi

Kabir Bedi is a Sikh star from India. He is a tall and muscular man who exuded a macho image, unlike most other stars on the Hindi screen. He was educated at St Stephens College in Delhi and made his debut in Hindi cinema nearly 4 decades back. Bedi did get some good roles in Hindi cinema, but he opted to try his luck in Hollywood Not many Indian heroes have made it good in Hollywood, but Kabir Bedi is one of that rare breed. Kabir acted in many Hollywood movies. His shared a stellar in “Ashanti” with Michael Caine and in the James Bond movie “Octopussy” he more than held his own as the arch villain. He starred with Roger Moore in this film. Bedi was a great success in the TV serial “” in Italy and girls swooned over him. This was a tale of a romantic Asian pirate during British colonial times; It was an Italian-German-French TV series which broke viewership records across Europe

Italian Knighthood

The President of the Italian Republic officially knighted Kabir Bedi in 2010. He received the highest ranking civilian honor of the Italian Republic and given the title “Cavaliere" (Knight). This is a great honor for Bedi. No Indian star has been so honored outside India. Kabir also starred in the serial “ bold and beautiful’ for over a year.
Kabir Bedi married 4 times and had 3 children. He But there is no doubt he was one of India’s finest actors and ruggedly handsome. I have seen his old movies and even his latest movies and I can say he is an actor without peer.

Kabir Now

Kabir Bedi is now semi-retired and acts occasionally if a role appeals to him. There is no doubt that Bedi had exceptional talent, but somehow I feel he wasted his time in having umpteen love affairs, which became center piece in his life. One has just to watch the Hindi movie “ Khoon Bhari Mang” to realise what an explosive actor he was.

I watched his TV serial “ SandoKhan” and one can’t think of a more macho and handsome man than Kabir Bedi. Kabir is now 69, but he still exudes a charm that endears him to women. He last married in 2005.

His wife Protima sold me my dog, knew her personally.
He left her to canoodle Miss 36 teeth Nikki who homewrecked the family for him. Hollywood style.
Guess almost all Nikkis are such.
