The vessel is an upgraded version of a casino previously operating at the Mandovi river here.

"Casinos play a big role in tourism. People go to Macau, they go to Vegas, but it is beautiful to see something like this in India," Dutt said.

The "Munnabhai" actor said he usually does not opt for gaming at casinos. "I just like to be at the bar and watch others play," he added.
