Apart from Bollywood and Hollywood, Kabir Bedi has also starred in Italian movies, such as Roundtrip, Beyond Justice and The Black Corsair. The Casino Royale actress Caterina Murino, who hailed from Italy was once quoted as saying that Kabir Bedi is a big star in Italy.
Caterina Murino said that Shahrukh Khan, Aamir Khan or Salman Khan are not known in Italy but Kabir Bedi is well known by one and all. She said, "But for us, Kabir Bedi is a big star in Italy, all your big stars here are completely unknown to us."
