Indiana Jones Wiki

This child was the second of two boys who spoke to Indiana Jones and Short Round in their cell in 1935.


Captured by the Thuggee, the boy had been forced to work in the mines beneath Pankot Palace.[1]

The boy and his companion warned Indiana Jones about the Black Sleep of the Kali Ma, which was used to force people into serving the Thuggee.[1]

When Jones was taken from the cell and forced to drink Blood of Kali, the boy from the cell had been put under the Black Sleep; he brought forward a chalice so that Jones too would become an unwilling agent of the Thuggee cause.[1]

The "2nd Boy in Cell" was played by Zia Gelani in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.[1] In the novelization and comic adaptation of the film, his and the dialogue of the 1st Boy in Cell are combined into one character: Nainsukh.[2][3]
