BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH: I LOVE INDIA

Talking about his love for India, Benedict said, “I love India. I love your country. It’s been almost a lifetime since I was last there as a 19-year-old. But I had the most extraordinary and formative experience when I was teaching in West Bengal. I was staying there, sleeping there and also working with the refugee community. And then I got to experience India at large. First of all, when I got there, I crossed Delhi via train through Varanasi. And then, we stayed in Rajasthan for a month and I fell in love with the country. I haven’t even visited South India, Ladakh and those are the regions of the North that I would love to visit. It’s a huge place and I have one life. I hope something will bring me back soon.”
