Sandokan is an interesting side-story for a Bollywood actor, Kabir Bedi whose ‘greatest success was Sandokan, the saga of a romantic Asian pirate during British colonial times; an Italian-German-French TV series which broke viewership records across Europe’ (quoted from wikipedia).

One of my early childhood memories is watching this serial on Indian TV. I vaguely remembered a shot of Kabir Bedi killing a tiger in mid-leap and was glad to discover it also on youtube.

Here’s to some childhood memories and to Kabir Bedi who made it big………outside of the Indian cultural zone.
