Proof of passion


This was realised by the makers and stars of his debut film, Rajdhani Express. Even though the Leander has already finished shooting for his portion of the film, it doesn’t mean he is not involved in the project.

 Recently, the rest of 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 had bonded with them really well.

While he was catching up with them, producer Rajesh K Patel, who is one of the biggest diamond merchants and a humongous fan of Leander, requested him to shoot for some patchwork which was still left. Without throwing this weight around, Leander more than gracefully obliged and shot the patchwork scenes. And if one needs more proof of his passion for his work, film and 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 are sure he will repeat his success in Bollywood as well.
