Great British Film: The East is East at 21 Interviews. No.3 - Chris Bisson who played Saleem Khan
We continue celebrating 21 years since the brilliant and ground breaking East is East burst into our cinemas. The classic BAFTA Award Winning Brit Flick was an hilarious movie with serious undertones - tackling both racism and domestic violence. Here Chris Bisson who now stars as Jai in Emmerdale, talks about playing Saleem Khan who had one of the funniest storylines and scenes in the film.
