Life of Pi came close, but it can be argued there was really only one major role for a South Asian.
Disney’s Million Dollar Arm stars Madhur Mittal and Suraj Sharma who play two 18-year-olds recruited by a desperate sports agent looking for a star pitcher.
Lacking clients in the United States, the agent goes to India to conduct a reality show competition to find two top athletes he can train to be major league pitchers.
Million Dollar Arm opens May 16 in the United States, but recently played before a largely Indian American audience who came to see a sneak preview.
