Chris Evans turned 40 on Sunday, June 13. The actor, best known for his role as Captain America in the Marvel movies, has a massive fan-following in India. However, did you know that long before he starred in Captain America: The First Avenger, the actor had visited India?
The actor, in a 2012, opened up about his spiritual connection with the country. Chris Evans revealed he had visited India in the early 2000s for a Buddhist retreat.
"I spent three weeks in Rishikesh in 2005 or 2006 at a Buddhist retreat. I attend a Buddhism class here in LA and the woman who teaches had trained there. So we all went and stayed in this little village for about three weeks, hiked the Himalayas, camped on the banks of the Ganga… it was great,” Evans had said. However, he had been missing the annual trip due to his film commitments. “And that really sucks!” he added.
The Avengers: Endgame star retired from his post as Captain America in 2019. The actor had bid adieu to the superhero and passed the mantle to Anthony Mackie's Sam Wilson, also known as the Falcon.
