Tom Hiddleston is a very popular actor not only in Hollywood, but he has a huge fan following in India as well. The actor, who is known for his role as Loki, has often talked about his fondness for India as well. However, interestingly, his movies and his Indian fans are not the only connection he has with our country.
Not many know this but Hiddleston has a sister living in India. In an old interview with Hindustan Times, the Loki actor has talked about his sister living in India and how he often visits the country. In the interview which dates back to 2012, the actor had revealed that his sister lives in Chennai and she was the one who introduced him to several Bollywood movies, including Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s Devdas.
Hiddleston had said, “I have family in India. My sister stays in Chennai and I’ve been to India about four times so far. The last time I came was in October last year (2011)… I came very quietly just to see my sister. I love it there.” Apart from Chennai, he has had a chance to visit places like Puducherry and Mahabalipuram as well.
“My Indian family is always introducing me to new films. My sister made me see Devdas that had Aishwarya Rai. The last film I saw was Shah Rukh Khan’s My Name Is Khan on an airplane. I loved it,” added the actor. He also expressed his desire to star in a Bollywood film during the same interview.
On the work front, Tom Hiddleston will be seen in Loki, which is one of the many MCU projects that were announced last year. The series will give us an insight into the life of one of the most notorious villains in the MCU universe. Loki will premiere on Disney Plus on June 9.
