When talking to the media, Hooda expressed his gratitude in staying, “It’s a wonderful country. It’s a country which has its biggest strength as multiculturalism. I think we are all part of it and its growing more and more.”

In fact, by picking up the accent during his time there, Hooda managed to bag his first role in Mira Nair’s ‘Monsoon Wedding’ (2001) where he played an NRI from Australia.
