An actor from Shropshire who starred in Oscar-nominated Bollywood film Lagaan says the four-month stint in India was a 'great experience'.
Paul Blackthorne told ITV News Central working with legendary actor and producer Aamir Khan in the 2001 hit was 'an extra special treat'.
Lagaan (meaning Land Tax) was filmed in the Kutch district in western India.
It was set in the time of the British Raj and told the story of poor villagers who faced ruin because their taxes were doubled by their rulers.
The solution was to challenge the British to play a Cricket match with the prospect of their taxes being cancelled if they beat them.
The film was a huge hit and just missed winning an Oscar in the Best Foreign film category in 2002.
