When Hollywood increased its footprints in India

India has drawn many international celebrities over the years whether its for work, pleasure or both and 2013 saw many Hollywood A-listers taking a trip to the country

Actors like Susan Sarandon, Michelle Yeoh, filmmakers Atiq Rahimi and Majid Majidi were recently in India to promote their work at various film festivals. Sarandon and Iranian director Majidi were the guests of honour at the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) 2013, while French-Afghan filmmaker Rahimi’s ‘The Patience Stone’ opened the Soul of Asia section at IFFI. At the screening, Rahimi had said that he wished he was born in India as he is fond of the country. “I love India and whenever I leave this country I have tears in my eyes. It’s like going away from your mother,” Rahimi had said. Majidi, whose films ‘Children of Heaven’, ‘The Colour of Paradise’ and ‘The Song of Sparrows’ have found love from Indian cinema lovers, will shoot his next in India titled ‘Floating Gardens’. Yeoh was also a guest at IFFI, where her documentary film ‘Pad Yatra: A Green Odyssey’ was screened. This was Yeoh’s second trip IFFI. Mumbai International Film Festival saw the presence of Oscar-winning Iranian director Asghar Farhadi and legendary Greek-French filmmaker Costa-Gavras this October. Farhadi screened his latest The Past at the festival while Gavras, who has been behind celebrated political dramas like ‘Z’, ‘Missing’ and ‘The Confession’, was given a lifetime achievement award.

Hollywood divas Sharon Stone, Hilary Swank and Kesha were in attendance at the inaugural amfAR gala in Mumbai. While Swank and Kesha’s trip was short, Stone made the most of her India visit by taking a trip to Varanasi and Agra.

Demi Moore was spotted in McLeod Ganj, Dharamshala, attending a spiritual conference under His Holiness the Dalai Lama. She was accompanied by her Sikh guru Hargopal Kaur Khalsa during the trip.

It is said that her trip was a “soul searching” one as she was in the middle of finalising her divorce from Ashton Kutcher. Moore had previously come to India with Kutcher in 2011.
