Naveen Andrews upset over not knowing Hindi
British Indian actor Naveen Andrews, who plays Aishwarya Rai's abusive husband in "Provoked", calls himself a fraud because he can't speak Hindi.
Andrews' parents migrated to Britain in 1965 and endured all kinds of hardship and racism before his birth.
Now, the "Lost" star is ashamed of himself and feels bad for his parents who might be disappointed in him because he can neither speak their mother tongue nor does he have any interest in discovering his roots, reports
"As I get older I appreciate what my parents had to go through... They had to endure a lot of what I would've found unendurable," he said.
"Life was very hard for them and yet they had this kid (Andrews) growing up in the 1970s speaking differently, acting differently, moving differently. It must've been very distressing to them. I'm a complete fraud. I go to India and I can't even speak my own language. They laugh at me."
