KABIR BEDI
 
After a long hiatus Kabir Bedi is back and this time on the small Screen. A leading channel is soon going to telecast a TV series on the life and teachings of Gautam Buddha.

The show which was ideally supposed to be a movie will have Kabir Bedi playing a pivotal role.

“I am playing a sage who foresees the coming of the Buddha. I couldn’t refuse Dr. BK Modi (producer), who is a friend of mine,” says Kabir.

The show is based on historical facts and will tell the story of prince Siddharth and his transition into the Buddha. Kabir Bedi also has a personal connect with Buddhism.

What people are oblivious to is that Kabir Bedi's mother was a nun in Tibet for the last 15 years.

The actor further adds, “My mother was a Buddhist nun in Tibet for the last 15 years of her life. I was also ordained a monk in Burma when I was 10. I spent a few months in a monastery as well. My head was shaved, and I was put in a room, had to wear a robe, roam the streets with a bowl to get donations of food from people and meditate for certain hours in the day. I spent the summer that year as a Buddhist monk.”
