Chris Hemsworth has always captivated the audience with not only his godly looks but also his extravagant acting. The Thor actor, who is currently busy promoting his upcoming movie Men In Black: International, talked about his love for our country India. Chris shot for his Netflix series Dhaka, last year, in India. During the shoot, he spent a lot of time in India and has grown fond of it.
He even has a seven-year-old daughter who is named India Rose Hemsworth. In a recent interview with IANS, the actor revealed the reason behind naming his daughter after the country’s name. he said, “My wife (Elsa Pataky) spent a lot of time in India and that was where the name originally came from. I love the place and the people. Shooting there... There were thousands of people on the streets every day and I have never experienced that on set. It was sort of intimidating as it was exciting because there were so many people.”
Further expressing his love for the country and people here, he added, "After every take (when the director) called 'cut', there was loud cheer. We felt like rock stars in a stadium. But the warmth and support we got while shooting there, no matter how disruptive we were to their daily lives, it was so good. People were so positive. I have a huge appreciation to that.’’
India is undoubtedly the most welcoming country as we all believe in Atithi Devo Bhava. Looks like this welcoming nature of Indians has impressed Chris and his wife a lot. And indeed, Chris has reciprocated to all the love given to him by naming his daughter India.
On the work front, Chris Hemsworth’s Avengers: Endgame was a blockbuster success worldwide. And the actor is now gearing to take the legacy forward with his next release Men in Black. The movie also starring Tessa Thompson is slated to hit the theatres on June 14.
