Amitabh Bachchan Signs with Hollywood Talent Agency!

The angry young man of Bollywood turned elder statesman can now add another hyphenate to his stellar career, Hollywood actor with top-tier representation!  In a great piece of news, Amitabh Bachchan has signed with hot, new Hollywood agency Resolution.  No doubt that Anil Kapoor had a hand in bringing Amitabh over to stateside representation as Anil is represented by mega-agent David Unger at Resolution.

It’s likely that Resolution is seeking to build on Amitabh’s great cameo as Jewish gangster Meyer Wolfsheim in ‘The Great Gatsby‘.  He more than held his own in pivotal scenes with Hollywood mega-stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire in the Baz Luhrman directed vehicle. The film was based on the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel of the same name and went on to gross over $330 million worldwide.

No word on any upcoming Hollywood projects to Amitabh yet, but he’s currently filming Bollywood film ‘Welcome Back‘ with stars Anil Kapoor and John Abraham.  We’ll keep you posted on any of Amitabh’s future films, both Hollywood and Bollywood, and we’re sure there will be many more Hollywood projects in his future with such strong representation.

Anil Kapoor Bringing ’24’ to India!

Bollywood/Hollywood actor Anil Kapoor originally played a supporting role as Islamic leader Omar Hassan on the last season of the U.S. version of ‘24‘, but he’s taking on the leading role of everyone’s favorite anti-terrorism agent Jack Bauer on the Indian version of the show. Anil bought the rights for ‘24‘ in late 2011 with the intention of adapting it for Indian audiences so it only makes sense that he will play the lead role of protagonist Jack Bauer, originally played by Kiefer Sutherland.

24‘ was a show that covered a 24-hour period in Counter Terrorism Unit agent Jack Bauer’s life using a real time method of narration in which a prominently displayed ticking clock coupled with split screens depicting different, simultaneous occurences heightened the audience’s sense of drama and peril. The original ‘24‘ ran for eight critically acclaimed seasons in the U.S. and also has the distinction of being the longest running espionage-themed show in history, beating out the original ‘Mission: Impossible‘ show and British show ‘The Avengers‘.

Anil took to Twitter to tweet “”First look of 24 India! The teaser looks great. Can’t wait to show it to you guys!“. Famous Bollywood writer Niranjan Iyengar, of ‘My Name is Khan‘ fame, will write the dialogue with Rensil D’Silva also writing and Anil acting/producing.

Anil and his writing team have hinted that the Indian version will be different than the Hollywood version, but they’ve been sparse on particulars. The American version of ‘24‘ sometimes came under attack for its depictions of Muslims and accusations that it glorified torture, but was on the whole a well-received show. No word yet if Anil’s Indian-version of Jack Bauer will flip the script by torturing Caucasian terrorists (perhaps Checnyans and others?) but we’ll keep you posted!

Bollywood Actor Anil Kapoor Denies Involvement in ‘Curry in Love’

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Is this simply a tale of wishful thinking by Kollywood-based director P Vasu or is there something more substantial to the rumors involving a film project entitled ‘Curry in Love‘?  The future project is supposed to star Hollywood stars Amanda Seyfried and Nick Nolte along with Bollywood stars Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor according to director P Vasu and Producer/Screenwriter Raj Thiruselvam.

Anil Kapoor has denied any knowledge of such a film or role existing for him and his daughter Sonam Kapoor’s reps also denied involvement in this project.  No word yet on Amanda Seyfried’s involvement, but it should be noted that the Hollywood star was rumored to be asking $7.5 million (roughly 44.15 Crore) to star in the sequel for ‘Mamma Mia‘.  To put this in perspective, P Vasu’s last Kollywood Film’s (2011’s Kannada language ‘Arakshaka‘) budget was $680,000 (4 Crore) and made $840,000 (4.92 Crore).

Thiruselvam also insists that shooting is set to start in August, yet Amanda Seyfried’s IMDB shows her as currently filming Seth MacFarlane‘s comedic Western ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West‘ with Hollywood heavy-hitters Liam Neeson and Charlize Theron, among others.

The website for ‘Curry in Love‘ also shows all four stars mentioned as part of the “Dreamcast” for the movie.

Chalk this up to Kollywood daydreaming on P Vasu and associates’ part?

Why is Ameesha Patel looking desperate?

Just like anybody else, stars go through changes. We’ve witnessed many Bollywood actors evolve in the last 5 years. Some in a good way, while others…not so much. We can’t help but ask…what’s up with Bollywood actress Ameesha Patel?

Indian version of ’24’ looking for new faces

Bollywood Actor Anil Kapoor is in search of 30 new faces for the Indian version of the American TV series 24. They have already started the auditions and are scouting for locations for the shooting, according to a source. The show will go on by end of January 2013.

Anil played Omar Hassan, president of the fictional Islamic Republic of Kamistan in the eighth season of the show.  Now Kapoor will play the character of Jack Bauer, who was played by Kiefer Sutherland in the original American series.

We love bollywood, but maybe they need to come up with something original instead of trying to re-create something that has already been seen and done. No?
