While that’s the dilemma regarding the male leads, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma are being considered for the role of the heroine. So what’s really going on in the Hollywood filmmaker’s mind?
A lot is being said about Steven Spielberg’s visit to India. And while most of it was revealed during his conversation with Amitabh Bachchan last night, there were juicy bits that lay outside the periphery of the much talked about ‘chat’.
While in conversation with the Big B, Spielberg revealed that his favourite childhood pastime was crashing toy trains and filming it through his father’s Super 8 mm cameras. Slowly, the topic veered towards the making of his movies – Saving Private Ryan, Close Encounters, Moonraker, American Beauty, E.T., Schindler’s List and Jaws. Spielberg talked about the challenges he faced while filming them. According to him, Jaws was the most difficult movie. “Jaws was the hardest. The adverse shoot went on for nine months and that almost stopped me from being a filmmaker. But then it turned out to be this big hit – there was this big white turd floating around the water and people in the audience were loving it, throwing popcorn in the air,” he said during the conversation.
But apart from this, B-town is abuzz with news that Spielberg is planning a crossover movie, which will star Bollywood as well as Hollywood actors. “We have finalised a script for a movie that DreamWorks and our partners Reliance Entertainment plan to make together,” he said in an interview.
What’s more, the B-town actors being considered for this one are Shahrukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma. From the H-town, names like Denzel Washington, Bradley Cooper and Richard Gere are being suggested.
