Hollywood star Chris Hemsworth, popularly known as his on-screen character Thor, was recently in India shooting for a Netflix project Dhaka. Chris Hemsworth, whose daughter is named India, holds the country in a special place in his heart.
Yes, you read it right. Chris and his wife Elsa Pataky hit the headlines in 2012 for naming their first born baby girl India. Recently he revealed the reason behind the name of his daughter.
Chris Hemsworth said: “I love the place and the people. Shooting there… There were thousands of people on the streets every day and I have never experienced that on set. It was sort of intimidating as it was exciting because there were so many people.”
He further added, “After every take (when the director) called ‘cut’, there was loud cheer. We felt like rock stars in a stadium. But the warmth and support we got while shooting there, no matter how disruptive we were to their daily lives, it was so good. People were so positive. I have a huge appreciation for that.”
Do you know who else named his daughter India? Former South African cricketer Jonty Rhodes became a proud father of a baby girl in 2015 and named her India Rhodes.
