From 1974 to 1981 there was a cheesy comedy series called It ain’t half hot mum. It was about an army concert party in India.
Although very dated and definitely not pc by today’s standards it did give many British Asian actors their first big break.
If you go on IMDb for it ain’t half hot mum and look at the cast there might be an actor from the film you’re looking for.
I’ve had a quick look, Can’t find any, but there are a lot of actors there.
