Ontario got a taste of Bollywood stardom today.
Bollywood film star Anil Kapoor visited the provincial legislature, receiving a personal tour from the premier.
Premier Dalton McGuinty appeared to be so excited to see the “Slumdog Millionaire” actor that he breezed past two cabinet ministers who joined the tour without saying hello.
The premier showed Kapoor the legislative chamber, then gave him an Ontario flag.
The two men hugged before going inside the premier’s office for a private chat.
Kapoor is in town to promote the International Indian Film Academy, which is holding its awards ceremony in Toronto in June.
It’s the first time the international celebration of Bollywood films will be held in North America.
