NRI, Kalpen Modi (Kal Penn)
play leading man in Hollywood
Harold and Kumar Go to
White Castle (2004) R
Sometimes, it takes a strange night to put everything into focus. That's
what happens to Harold (John Cho), a Korean-American banker, and his roommate,
Kumar (Kal Penn), an Indian-American med school student. Both men
are at a crossroads in life, about to make major decisions that will affect
the course of their future. They arrive at wisdom by accident as they
drive around their New Jersey city to find the best stoner fix: White
It is currently on the US Top 10 charts, having grossed
$12.3 million. Kal plays the lead role along with John Cho.
"My latest release is similar to Dude, Where's My Car? in terms
of genre," says Kal. "It's cool because it's got the teen
comedy element. But it's also got a lot of intelligence." The movie
shows both Harold and Kumar eating more than a dozen hamburgers each,
which is ironic considering that in real life Penn is a vegetarian.
The Gujarati-Indian actor simply refused to eat the non-veg burgers
while shooting for this film. No other Indian actor has received such
wide exposure in mainstream cinema as Penn since Sabu became a phenomenon
in the 1940s with films like Elephant Boy
He played omic role in American Desi and brief appearances in popular
TV serials like ER and Buffy
