—Ravi Chandra being bribed

Ravindra Manpreet Chandra is a minor antagonist in Crocodile Tears.


Chandra has a family of young children whom he wanted to take to Disneyland but he is bribed by Desmond McCain via a friend of Ravi’s cousin Jagdish who worked in the kitchen of a five-star hotel and a European to set off a bomb inside a power plant in Chennai, in order to poison the land and help McCain raise money for his fake charity. Chandra is told that the bomb has a ten minute delay, giving him enough time to plant it and escape. However, Chandra is betrayed by McCain, as there is in fact it is a suicide bomb and there is no delay. Therefore, Chandra is vaporized in the explosion.


Ravi Chandra dreamed of being rich and owning a large house with a fridge full of beer. Because of this greed he ended up almost destroying Chennai. Like almost all Indians he liked Bollywood, the Indian equivalent of Hollywood-to the extent that he had a pin up of the Bollywood heroine Shilpa Shetty pinned up in his locker, perhaps unbeknownst to his wife. He also watched sport, and wanted to watch cricket in London.
