The billionaire producer and movie director Steven Spielberg is in India! He has ventured all the way to India to interact with Bollywood stars and offer his views on Indian cinema. The Indian film fraternity is of course buzzing with excitement that Spielberg is in town and wants to discuss movie making with them. The Indian (Hindi) film industry is already the largest in the world, with Bollywood (Mumbai) making more movies than Hollywood every year. Upcoming Indian film artists are thrilled at the opportunity to meet Spielberg and get to know the man behind such a large number of incredible Hollywood ventures.
Spielberg on his arrival in India spoke about his love for the Indian film classics. He talked about the movie, Awaara in particular which has been made by the Indian director, the Late Raj Kapoor and told the Indian audience that this is one movie which definitely had an impact on the way he has made films and perceived them overall. In his view, Awaara is certainly one hell of a classic and will always remain so.
Spielberg is presently in India not only to just discuss Indian movies, but also to celebrate the making of the movie Lincoln. The movie has been very well received by the Indian audience. This provided the director with the incentive of visiting the country and getting to know the film fraternity there. On his arrival at Mumbai (Bombay), Spielberg met all the top stars including actor Amitabh Bachchan, his wife Jaya and his daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai who incidentally has done some Hollywood films herself.
The Indian fans of Spielberg are of course absolutely thrilled that he has decided to visit the country and want to find any opportunity to get to know the man. The success of Lincoln is a reflection of Spielberg’s directorial talents and answers the question as to why he is the most successful American director of all time. Spielberg himself is rather taken aback by the success of his movies in India. He is thrilled to know about the large number of fans in India, and wishes to visit again in the future.
Lincoln is based on the life and times of the former American President Abraham Lincoln. It is a semi-fiction movie. Spielberg has made several such movies before. Lincoln seems to be very well researched. Critics have received the movie well. There have been rave reviews.
We wonder now whether Spielberg plans to make any movie on India and with Indians or not! Perhaps someday soon, Spielberg might be seen setting a movie in India.
