Lever who was in the country for the Arise Prayer Festival in Lautoka this week to spread the word of God said Fiji is unique in its own way and is a real paradise on earth.

"I love Fiji and its people and its always a pleasure to come here because of the beauty of the place and its wonderful people," he quipped.

"With Bollywood already discovering Fiji as a location for movie shoots, the country will become more popular in years to come as the beauty of the wonderful islands will be showcased to the world through the screens."

"I personally as an actor would love to come shoot one of my movies here as I am now well adjusted to this country and am very close to the friendly people here. The lovely seas, the clean beaches, crystal clear waters, the nice scenary and the wonderful people just make the location very attractive."

Lever, 62, who was born and brought up in Mumbai began his career in 1984 and has acted in more than 300 Bollywood films since.
