Robert John Christo, popularly known as Bob Christo, was born in 1938 in Sydney, Australia. After completing his civil engineering in Sydney, he took on projects which involved supporting the military supply lines of the South Vietnamese army and working as construction supervisor on the film sets of Apocalypse Now. Led by his instincts, Christo zealously followed one aspiration after another: chasing after a lost spy ship, running an escort service, modelling for African beer, singing in rock concerts, and so on. Bob Christo landed his first film role at the age of sixteen in a German movie, after working as an extra in the Düsseldorf National Theatre, Germany. Hoping to meet Parveen Babi in India, he chanced upon a part in Sanjay Khan s Abdullah (1980) and then went on to act in hundreds of Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada films. In the year 2000 he became a yoga instructor after shifting base from Mumbai to Bangalore, where he passed away on 20 March 2011. Author Bio: Bob Christo played Bollywood baddies in scores of films including Qurbani, Namak Halal, Mard, Mr India and Agneepath. If there was a fight to be picked with the hero, a village to be terrorized or an immoral foreigner to be portrayed, it invariably fell on Bob s beefy shoulders. He acted in over 200 films and fifteen television serials in a career that spanned over two decades. This memorable autobiography traces the journey of a civil engineer from Australia who travelled the world and wrestled with his own demons before becoming one of Bollywood s most prolific villains and then went on to reinvent himself yet again. Bob Christo s life story is like a rollicking superhit and includes bar brawls and shootouts, secret missions and spirituality, wars and passionate liaisons, even music and dance.
