Just when you thought Bollywood was getting more interesting, a former politician and ex-president even enjoys B-town films himself! Hey, they are allowed to enjoy a night out with a great movie once in a while even if its Bollywood! Former President of the United States, Bill Clinton has revealed that he’s a keen Bollywood fan after meeting British Asian entrepreneur, Kaser Mehmood.
‘It just came up in conversation,’ said the young Brit, famous for his work with Bollywood A-list celebrities. ‘I asked him if he had seen many Indian films and he said that he’d seen several and loved productions.’ – Mehmoood said.
British born Kaser met the ex-president when he was invited along to a gala dinner for the Clinton Foundation in central London. But the conversation wasn’t all about Bollywood and celebrity:
‘I was there to support the work of the Clinton Foundation,’ said Kaser. ‘As a businessman and philanthropist I continue to support the Clinton Foundation’s mission to improve global health, strengthen economies, promote healthier childhoods, and protect the environment. The ex-president himself was very friendly and easy to talk to and we were chatting for some time about all the good work that the foundation is doing.’
Kaser already has a reputation for endorsing high profile celebrities’ charitable causes, most recently having arranged for a donation of £7500 to be made to the Mo Farah Foundation, which provides life-saving aid to those millions facing starvation and disease in East Africa.
Satisfied that the ex-president of the United States is a fan of Bollywood, Kaser, who combines entertainment with his philanthropist work, said he will now turn his attentions to promote Bollywood in the Middle East. ‘I feel that Qatar is the next big contender in the entertainment field and so I’m looking to this region to be the next big heavyweights to embrace Bollywood.’
