Hollywood comes to Bollywood
Three new Hollywood films are set to be shot in India shortly as producers explore the Indian market with the help of an Indian American talent manager in Hollywood.
Jai Khanna, who booked Irrfan Khan on Sony’s new big-budget 3D Spider-Man film, Ang Lee’s Life of Pi and HBO’s “In Treatment”, is now looking to get more big names from Bollywood into mainstream Hollywood projects.
“The process of selecting India as a location has been easy,” says Jai Khanna, a manager at Brillstein Entertainment Partners (BEP), a top Hollywood talent management film and television production company.
“The key is finding the right partners, those with the right sensibility, in order to navigate the landscape and politics of India, as well as appeal to an American crew and cast,” said Khanna.
