Long before appearing in 'Million Dollar Arm,' Bollywood stars were making names for themselves in other Hollywood films. At one time only known to Bollywood audiences, today their faces are recognized around the world. See for yourself.
Suraj Sharma - Life of Pi (2012)
You will surely recognize Suraj from 'Life of Pi,' where he played a young man trapped in a lifeboat with a ferocious tiger. Lucky for fans the tiger was CGI, otherwise that might have been his last film.
Amitabh Bachchan - The Great Gatsby (2013)
Since he played a gambler opposite Tobey McQuire and Leonardo Di Caprio in 'The Great Gatsby,' it is probably a good bet that you will be seeing Amitabh in many more Hollywood films to come.
Freida Pinto - Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011)
Since appearing in the Oscar winning film 'Slumdog Millionaire,' Freida Pinto's Hollywood star has been rising faster than her film, 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes.'
Tabu - The Namesake (2006)
She might have appeared in 'The Namesake,' but don't let her name fool you - there is nothing taboo about this talented actress' career.

Having played the part of Captain Nemo in 'The League of Extraodinary Gentlemen,' there is no doubt that this gentleman is having an extraodinary career.
Victor Banerjee - A Passage to India (1984)
Playing the part of a widowed doctor in 'A Passage to India' served as a passage to Hollywood for this talented actor.
Kabir Bedi - Octopussy (1983)
Protecting a villain in any film is always a fun job, but when you are protecting a villain in a James Bond film... nobody does it better.
