When Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan landed in Goa to shoot their film, Guzaarish, they chose to stay in Englishman Jan (pronounced Ian) Bostock's beautiful home, tucked away in Divar island, just off Panjim.
Bostock has thrown his home open to guests quite often, for a price.
"They were staying at our place on and off four about four or five days," Bostock tells us over the phone. "Bhansali (Sanjay Leela Bhansali, director) came as well," he adds.
Besides these actors, Bostock also claims to count AR Rahman as one of his friends.
"I met him a few years ago in London," he says. "I knew he was something of a celebrity in India. But it wasn't until I picked him up from the airport one day. and stopped over at my children's school that I realised what a big star he was! Within minutes, tens of people surrounded the car."
Bostock now has another Bollywood connection. He will appear in Ashutosh Gowariker's upcoming film Khele Hum Jee Jaan Se, where he says he plays a negative role.
