Chris Hemsworth has always been vocal about his love for India. He fell in love with the country while shooting here for his Netflix film Extraction. But the actor’s connection with India goes way back.

In case you didn’t know, Hemsworth and his wife, Elsa Pataky have three beautiful children named Sasha, Tristan and India. The actor recently sat down with IANS, and explained the story behind why he and his wife decided to name their daughter after the country. “My wife spent lot of time in India and that was where the name originally came from,” he said.

Hemsworth had previously also explained his love and admiration for India during a press event.

“I love the place and the people. Shooting there… There were thousands of people on the streets every day and I have never experienced that on set. It was sort of intimidating as it was exciting because there were so many people,” he said.

He added, “I have such pleasant memories of people and interactions there, and a lot of enthusiasm and positivity. There was real excitement for us shooting there. We had never shot there before. From the crew it felt like there were not many films like this being shot there so there was a unique sort of originality to it.”
