Hollywood comedian Russell Brand has a deep love for Hinduism. "Yes, I love your country and I am a follower of Hinduism. What drove me towards it is the serenity that it brings to the mind and the body. I have also been practising Yoga for quite some time now", said Russell in an interview to The Hindustan Times.
Russell Brand married Katy Perry in a traditional Hindu wedding ceremony last October in Rajasthan. Brand also loves travelling around India. He has visited the Taj Mahal and important places in Rajasthan. "I am planning to visit Mumbai and the Himalayas on my next trip", he said.
About his married life, he says: "Pretty good. I am enjoying every bit of it."
Brand is craving for more Indian barbeque after he tasted on some during his last trip to India. "I have tried a lot during my recent trip to Rajasthan and seekh kababs are my favourite."
Brand's latest Hollywood film is a remake of the 1981 classic Arthur which opened in India on friday. "I play a prince, an archetypal character, a person of huge potential who has been inhibited by a perpetual childhood. I think we live in an age which exends adolescene - men dressed like 11-year-old boys playing computer games into their forties".
Given a chance, he says, he would love to explore Bollywood. "I'd love to some day, may be a comic role?"
