Leander Paes Excited About His Daughter Aiyana's Reaction To 'Rajdhani Express'

Tennis player Leander Paes, who turns actor with the upcoming film, Rajdhani Express - Point Blank Justice, showed his humane side by helping a junior artiste, Chaturbhuj, who suffered a massive heart attack while shooting. It was Leander who rushed him to the hospital and took care of all the medical expenses.

Chaturbhuj, however, succumbed to his injuries. Yet, Leander stood by the family and extended monetary support as well as made the funeral arrangements.


Sources from the unit claim that they never expected to see this side of him and called him a gem of a person.


The film, also starring Jimmy Sheirgill, Priyanshu Chatterjee and Sayali Bhagat, is set to release on January 4.
