Press Release - Rajdhani Express

When someone has as great an international stature as Leander Paes one can expect big time starry tantrums from them. But, not Leander who is professionalism and grace personified as was realized by the makers and stars of his debut film 'Rajdhani Express'.

Even though the ace tennis player has already finished shooting for his portion of the film, it hasn't meant that he is not involved in the project.

Recently, the unit was shooting for the film at Marine Drive and Leander who just arrived from the French Open in Paris, decided to go and say a quick hello to his friends and colleagues in the unit since he has bonded with them really well.

While he was catching up with them, the producer Rajesh K Patel, who is one of the biggest a diamond merchant (After Bharat Shah, now we see other diamond merchants entering the market) and a humongous fan of Leander requested him to shoot for some patchwork which was still left. Without throwing this weight around Lee more than gracefully obliged and shot the patchwork scenes. And, if one needs more proof of his passion for his work, film and his role, he insists that everyone on the set call him by his screen name and not Leander or Lee since he gets completely into the skin of the character.

Well, we guess it is this passion and seriousness that has seen him touch the pinnacle of his tennis career and since one can see the same level of commitment here we're sure he will repeat his success in Bollywood as well!
