World famous tennis player from India, Leander Paes has discovered a new passion in him for Bollywood. He is soon set to make his debut on silver screen in a film called Rajdhani Express.

Directed by Ashok Kohli, Paes plays a common man in the film.

The tennis ace admitted that he has always been an admirer of Mahatma Gandhi, and when he read the script, it struck a chord in him, as it reflected Gandhiji’s immortal words ‘Be the Change that you would like to see in the world’ in an entertaining and engaging way.

He got his first Bollywood offer back in the year 1996, but at that time, he was too busy with tennis.
