Perhaps that was also because Michael’s welcome at the Umaid Bhawan palace was nothing short of a royal salute, with a red carpet, camels, elephants and horses part of the paraphernalia.
Dushant Singh, Michael’s points-person while touring locations in Jodhpur, said, “He is very down-to-earth and a highly professional guy. He came here for work, and that is exactly what he did.
