Sandokan: Solima's Classic Mini Series


Kabir Bedi: Sandokan Defined

Just as Sean Connery is considered to be the quintessential James Bond, so Kabir Bedi is considered to be the ultimate Sandokan. When the 1976 RAI miniseries Sandokan debuted, Kabir became an overnight sensation. He became so popular that at airports throughout Europe, women would bare their thighs for his autograph. He starred in two sequels The Return of Sandokan (1996) and The Son of Sandokan (1998). He also played Emilio di Roccanera in Il corsaro nero (1976) and Kammumuri in the 1991 miniseries I misteri della jungla nera.

The Black Corsair

With Sandokan wildly popular in Italy and Europe, Solima reunited his stars in yet another adaptation of a Salgari classic. Kabir Bedi and Carole André played opposite each other once again as the Black Corsair and Honorata.
