I didn’t get to travel to India to shoot this commercial.
Actually, India came to Los Angeles via Savile Row London.
For nearly 200 years Savile Row has been the street in London where prestigious tailors custom design clothing for Royalty, members of Parliament and film stars.
For a few frames I play a Savile Row tailor with Bollywood Actor Akshay Kumar playing himself.
Here is a short film on the making of “What’s Your Pleasure?” the Baba Elachi Gum commercial followed by the actual commercial.
To say “I had a lot of fun” would be an understatement!
As a commercial actor I have had the unique opportunity to “be lots of people”. Businessman, Doctor, Engineer, Airline Pilot…
Yup, I’m all those guys and as a result acting is helping me become more myself.
