After receiving widespread acclaim from across the globe, Life of Pi actor, Irrfan Khan is confident that his upcoming flick, The Lunchbox, will make it to the Oscars.

Directed by Ritesh Batra, the film has received a positive response from film festivals world-wide.  It even won the Critic’s Week Viewers Choice Award at Cannes earlier this year.  So, could Irrfan be right?  “The opinion that critics and audiences have and also of those whose opinion matters, they believe if the film is sent from India (for the Oscars), it has the potential to travel forward,” said the actor.

Adding “Hollywood Reporter (tabloid) has also written that ‘we expect the film to be Oscar entry from India’. So this is a possibility with the film. It has this strength, universal appeal, fresh language and story.”

The 46-year old actor feels this is a “huge opportunity and should not be missed out on.”  The movie is set to release on September 20, 2013, and also stars actors Nimrat Kaur and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

When asked why he feels so strongly about this particular film, he replied “The right film should be chosen. It affects the environment, the upcoming generation, it becomes a source of inspiration, it builds our morale that our language can connect with the global world. This perception is not right that only a certain types of films are made in India. Cinema is being explored and flourishing. So, this decision is very important.

Sunny Leone’s manager, husband Daniel Weber, says he doesn’t have any Bollywood aspirations and isn’t interested in acting.

Porn star, turned Bollywood diva, Sunny Leone is taking the industry by storm.  Her recent move to India has been both exciting and a challenge for the couple.  Although the couple is taking Hindi language classes together, Daniel says it’s simply to help him run his business in India.  “As we have shifted our base to India and are currently staying in Mumbai, it is very important to know the language of the country. I am not learning Hindi because I want to have a career in Bollywood.”

Daniel does play a cameo role in wife Sunny’s latest flick, Jackpot.  He says he only agreed to do it, because director Kaizad Gustad insisted he did.  “I don’t have any Bollywood aspirations. I don’t want to act in films. I own a production house in the US and I look after the business by sitting here. I also have to manage Sunny’s schedules. I am quite busy in managing all these commitments.

We were shooting Jackpot in Goa and Kaizad needed someone for a cameo role. He approached me with the offer and I couldn’t say no. I am playing the role of a conman and also share screen space with Sunny,” he added.

Weber has been featured in Adult films in the past, but has no interest in breaking out in Bollywood.

Sachiin Joshi, Naseeruddin Shah and Tamil actor Bharath, are also starring in the film.  The film will be released sometime next year.

I’m sure people that are very protective of me wouldn’t feel very comfortable with that, but it’s like, what’s the big deal?,” she added.

We wonder if Hollywood will join the latest Bollywood craze, and start casting real life porn stars in movies  ;)
