Kiren Jogi | Actress and producer
“London is a hub for the world”
She was born in Birmingham but moved to Bombay with the aim of making it big in Bollywood. Now she returns with her own production outfit, the Indian London Film Company, through which she aims to link both worlds. We interview her in London.

She still travels frequently to Bombay, but while she is in London she always goes to Southall. “It’s like the mini-India of London”. When we ask her for the most authentic Indian restaurant she confesses amid laughter that she still hasn’t found one (even though there are over 9,000 Indian restaurants in the UK, two for every Chinese restaurant). But she throws out a hint: Broadway Street in Southall. “If you walk down that street, you can try jalebis, a typical Indian sweet, and you can find all the tastes of Bombay, Delhi or the Punjab”. For a creative person like Kiren, food too is a source of inspiration. “Anything that comes along my path is inspiration”. And even more so in London.
