It was one international star launching the work of his senior and the first truly international star of India. Anil Kapoor who has acted in international film projects like Oscar winning SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE-GHOST PROTOCOL, and the TV series 24, had high praise for Kabir Bedi and even went to the extent of saying that men with a persona like him are not made these days.

The place was a suburban Mumbai hotel and the occasion was the launch of a Collectors' Edition DVD Box Set of SANDOKON, a 6 hour long, six-episode mini TV series, originally made in Italian and now dubbed in Hindi. It was produced and telecast across Europe in 1976. Sergio Sollima directed the Italian-German-French co-production with a story based on a novel by Emilio Salgari. The series catapulted Kabir Bedi to international name and fame.  He became the heartthrob of Europeans and Latin Americans owing to his title role in the series. He later went on to act in films like OCTOPUSSY and the highly successful American TV soap opera BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL.

The DVD Box Set can be presently bought on various online stores and will soon be available at other outlets too. The title music of the series has also been re-rendered with Hindi lyrics.
