Steven Spielberg: We don’t have great access to Indian films in America – Watch video!

In his conversation with Amitabh Bachchan, the Hollywood filmmaker revealed that he is a tad clueless about Indian movies

Steven Spielberg’s visit to India had much to do with the success of Lincoln at the Oscars. But apart from that, the H-town filmmaker said a lot during his discussion with our beloved Amitabh Bachchan on March 11. In the first part of the video, we saw Spielberg talk about how he always wanted to make a Bond movie but couldn’t. In the second part, we see Big B quizzing him on Indian cinema.

“I am not as aware of Indian movies as I should be sitting here. We don’t have great access to Indian films in America,” Spielberg admitted. On being asked by Bachchan if there’s anything that Indian filmmakers could do to change this scenario, he replied, “You don’t need to do anything. We need to do it.”

According to Spielberg, America needed to open up to various cultures. “I have propagated the case (of Indian films in the US) and will continue to do so and it is one of the fringe benefits of this great relationship that we have with Reliance Entertainment, Anil Ambani and Amitabh Jhunjhunwala. One of our goals is to build this cultural bridge between India and the US,” he said.

But that was not all. The Hollywood filmmaker went on to talk about his two favourite movies – E.T. and Schindler’s List – and why they’re so close to his heart. So take a look at this video and tell us what you think of it. Quick!
