October 20, 2014 - Hollywood
- Indian-American actor Kal Penn will star as a journalist in a Bhopal film titled 'Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain'
- The movie is based on the 1984 gas leak tragedy in Bhopal.
- According to Kal, the movie provided him with an opportunity to play a larger-than-life, colorful reporter which could make a difference to the lives of families of victims of disaster.
- "The guy I play is kind of a ridiculous character... He is a journalist, who just wants to sell salacious headlines, more than telling the truth. During the course of the film it becomes clear that he is very passionate about his town and really wants to help the people", Penn said.
