British comedian and actor Alistair McGowan recently discovered he has Anglo-Indian roots. McGowan’s father never told his family
he was born in India in 1929 he was of Indian descent. George McGowan was born in Calcutta.
DNA quotes McGowan as saying: “The only connection with India that I can remember are occasional telephone calls from an Indian woman asking to speak to ‘George McGowan, please.’ My sister Kay and I would hear him say ‘Hello Auntie-ji’, and vaguely hear him use some Indian-sounding words.”
