Half-blind man in Himalayas made Kate Winslet realise her Titanic successFebruary 13th, 2009 - 1:49 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Feb 13 (ANI): British actress Kate Winslet has revealed that she had no idea how much her role in blockbuster movie Titanic had made her famous, until she met a half-blind man in the Himalayas.
Winslet, who starred in the movie alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in 1997, was on a walking trip around the Indian mountain range when an aged local man approached her.
A couple of years after Titanic came out, I went to India. I was walking in the foothills of the Himalayas, just me and my backpack, and a man came towards me with a walking stick. He must have been about 85, and he was blind in one eye, Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
He looked at me and said, You - Titanic! I said yes, and he put his hand on his heart and said, Thank you. I burst into tears. It really helped me to understand how much that film had given to so many people, she added. (ANI)
