I am an Integral part of what you call as "Bollywood" unfortunately and I know everybody from Actors to technicians to producers.Please do your research carefully before publishing stories.This individual is unheard of and may have appeared on Television a couple of times.He is an "Actor"-Taking up monkhood in Bangkok to promote Buddhism in India in itself is so flaky when India is home to His Holiness The Dalai Lama and Bodh Gaya.Utter rubbish-God knows who fed this to you

Lord Buddha was of Nepalese origin.What does that have to do with the story which is nothing but rubbish-obviously paid for.You are a Half American Journalist and you do not know anything about what you are writing about.Have you atleast heard about Bodh Gaya? Do you know who The Dalai Lama is? He is a living Buddha.We don't need some clown to promote Buddhism in India.A lot of Indians are practicing Buddhists and Hindusand have high regard for the Dharmic way of life.
