OC TV: SPECIAL: ‘Dr Cabbie’ Part 1 With Salman Khan & Vinay Virmani

Film & TV Open Chest TV Sep 11, 2014

Amidst the mayhem of traffic stopping action, an array of stars descended upon Toronto for the much anticipated world premiere festivities of the Indo-Canadian film ‘Dr Cabbie’, which burst onto the scene with fandom in tow this past Labour Day long weekend.

Amongst the star line up were international Bollywood superstar & India’s most bankable star, Salman Khan, screenwriter & actor, Vinay Virmani, TV’s comedic pop cultural icon, Kunal Nayyar (‘The Big Bang Theory’), and gorgeous newcomer, Isabel Kaif (Katrina Kaif’s younger sister). In this two part OPEN CHEST TV special, I had the opportunity to interview this quartet about the film and its importance to today’s immigrant story, as well as some impromptu banter about things that are specific to each personality.

In this part one of the special, I chatted with Salman about his ‘Being Human’ foundation and production company, and why he chose ‘Dr Cabbie’ as his North American launching pad for the foundation. He shared his ideology about the initiative as well as his plans to launch ‘Being Human’ in Canada next year. I also had the chance to chitchat with uber nice guy Vinay, who discussed his reasons for writing the concept of the film and the real life story which inspired him to make it.
