Videos of two University staff members who appeared in the Bollywood film Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 (YPD2) have featured on the ITV website in a series of recordings outlining '100 years of Bollywood'.

Dharminder Shoker, Assets Manager in Estates and Facilities Management Division , and Mike Simpson, Senior Web Communication Officer in the Marketing Communications Office, can be seen discussing their individual acting roles and offering insights into some of the filming locations on campus.

Dharminder, who had a speaking part in the film, talks about the fame he received – including being noticed in a barbers - and how the Student’s Union was used as a location.

Mike gives an insight into how the Queen’s Hall was used as an auction house in the film and how he can now cross ‘Been in a Bollywood film’ off his bucket-list.

YPD2 was filmed extensively on campus last year, and released in cinemas in June 2013. The film features film family Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol.
