Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor says he was once blessed by the Dalai Lama -- during a chance meeting on an airplane.
Anil spoke of his meeting with the Tibetan spiritual leader on the sidelines of an event on the occasion of World Compassion Day Wednesday.

"I was reading my script and preparing, I just looked up and I saw a few monks sitting in front of. In the midst of them, I saw the Dalai Lama, " the 52-year-old actor said here.
