The actor and voice artist has appeared in some of the highest grossing Hindi cinema films of all time and has five and a half million followers on Twitter. He has been in Cumbria with a group of friends and family to enjoy the sights, sounds and wonderful scenery of the Lake District.

Onboard MV Teal, Mr Irani and his group were met by Dan Visser, the Vice Chairman of Cumbria Tourism and Jennifer Cormack, the Sales and Marketing Director for Windermere Lake Cruises.

“It was our pleasure to welcome Mr Irani and his family and friends to Windermere and to help them experience the wonderful Lake District scenery,” said Dan Visser.

“They told me they were having a fantastic time here and we were delighted to show them around so they could enjoy all that this great part of the world has to offer.”
