That would work for me as a perfect tense followed by a present and a future:e.g. "He said he is from India so he wont like your curry."
I think you meant to say "...he is..." in the first highlighted portion.What is the difference? He said he was from India has maybe a more immediate feel to it, and raises fewer questions than He said he was from India, which would be something one might say when explaining that he was lying.
Not necessarily, but he could be:He said he was from India.
Is the speaker implying that he might have told a lie?
