Ask Nikhil Dwivedi about his most treasured moments and Nikhil reminisces about his meeting with the Hollywood legendry. Not only did he get to catch up with all his work on his trip to South Africa but he also got to meet none other than the Hollywood veteran Clint Eastwood! Yes, that's right. Oh, and it gets better... apart from Eastwood, there were Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon staying in the same hotel as Nikhil!
Four-time Oscar winner Clint Eastwood directed the film based on John Carlin's book "The Human Factor". "Invictus" narrates the true and inspiring story of how Nelson Mandela (played by Morgan Freeman) joined forces with the captain of the South African rugby team, Francois Pienaar (played by Matt Damon) to help unite his country.
As soon as Nikhil got to know that the trio was put up at the same hotel while they were shooting the film, Nikhil went and met them all and got two DVDs one of them LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA, autographed by Eastwood. Needless to say, the young actor was very thrilled to meet the original cowboy of Hollywood! Wonder if they exchanged notes on films and if Nikhil got some tips from Eastwood!
The two autographed DVD's commands a pride of place in Nikhil's treasured collectibles. Know that Rod Stewart song, 'Some guys have all the luck'? Nikhil Dwivedi would fit the bill to the T for that one.
