It’s only when Kane’s mean red mask comes off that you realise he is just another 45-year-old with a warm smile. The popular WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) wrestler, who was in Delhi on Thursday, has salt-n-pepper hair that come as a surprise when you’ve always seen him fighting wild, swinging those long black tresses that are part of the mask he wears. Back in 2009 however, when he last came to India, he was this clean-shaven, bald guy in formals, hosted by our very own action hero, Akshay Kumar.
So why the return of the mask this time, you wonder. “I just wanted to create some interest and fear,” says the American, whose real name is Glenn Thomas Jacobs.
And while he has no Bollywood plans even though he has been part of a few Hollywood films, he recalls his last filmy visit to India fondly. “I am not going to Mumbai this time so I won’t be able to meet Akshay. But the Bollywood thing amazes me. Akshay acts, fights, dances and does everything thing, I mean that’s amazing. Back in the States, no one is doing all of that.”
