Washington, Feb 13 (ANI): British actress Kate Winslet has revealed that she had no idea how much her role in blockbuster movie Titanic had made her famous, until she met a half-blind man in the Himalayas.

Winslet, who starred in the movie alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in 1997, was on a walking trip around the Indian mountain range when an aged local man approached her.

"A couple of years after Titanic came out, I went to India. I was walking in the foothills of the Himalayas, just me and my backpack, and a man came towards me with a walking stick. He must have been about 85, and he was blind in one eye," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

"He looked at me and said, 'You - Titanic!' I said yes, and he put his hand on his heart and said, 'Thank you'. I burst into tears. It really helped me to understand how much that film had given to so many people," she added. (ANI)
