Anil Kapoor has said that working in the US taught him "professionalism".
The Slumdog Millionaire star revealed that his preconceptions of Hollywood were challenged when he began work on 24, writes The Hollywood Reporter.
"What I learned in Hollywood is their work culture, professionalism, value for time and what they talk about they deliver. Everything is structured and organised," said Kapoor.
"I was quite surprised that for them relationships are very important too because there is this general misconception that America is all about cut-throat business deals with little room for personal relationships," he added.
The Bollywood veteran said that producers in the US would express surprise after googling Kapoor, to discover that he was the star of more than 100 films.
