Sir Tom Alter is a thespian of Bollywood in in his own right. Active in Bollywood films since the 70s, he has enacted some of the most legendary characters in main-stream films. A theater actor to the core, Alter has acted in five short films – and that too in the last six months.
His latest short film is ‘The Black Cat’, made by Bhargav Saikia, the founder of Lorien Motion Pictures. ‘The Black Cat’ is based on Ruskin Bond’s short story of the same name. Incidentally, Tom is a real life friend of Ruskin Bond and was a natural choice for the role.
