James Cameron hopes to film about Indian epics
If there is anything that would convince James Cameron to make a film in India, it would be its popular ancient epics, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata.
“Maybe right after the third Avatar,” joked the self-confessed ‘science groupie,’ social activist and one of Hollywood’s most successful film-maker.
“But if there is an Indian director who’d like to make a film — it could be about the Ramayana or the Mahabharata — we can offer the technology we’ve already developed — the 3D system and the virtual camera,” he added.
Talking about Avatar, which grossed more than $ 2.7 billion worldwide in ticket sales only, he says, “The films made money in a way that gave me hope. Non-profit organisations and NGOs approached me to use Avatar to further their message.”
