Hollywood has approached the busy director with a remake project for a popular foreign film. Gupta who was already working on movies, ‘Mumbai Saga‘ and ‘Khotey Sikkey‘ has to now make time for a third project.

“I am contractually bound to not reveal the details.” “All I can tell you is that it is a thriller like many of my previous films. But while the others were male-centric, this one has a woman protagonist and two important male characters. These guys approached me after seeing my body of work,” says Sanjay.

When asked who he will cast for the films, Sanjay says he may approach Bollywood actors John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan for the job. Maybe even Shahid Kapoor? He isn’t too sure about who he will cast for the female role but we’re sure the co-producer will reveal more as they move closer to production.

It’ll be a star but not the ones you are expecting. I’ll spring a big surprise,” said the 44-year-old. “I’ll finish it in one 35-60 day schedule. The city is important, we can easily film it in Mumbai. In fact, after struggling with the Mumbai of the 80s and 90s in ‘Mumbai Saga’, I would be happy to shoot the city as it is today,” he continued.

It is a universal theme with a taut screenplay that can be easily adapted to the Indian scenario. It won’t take me long to write it. I just need to work on the dialogue. It’s such a thrill to be finally doing a woman centric subject in Hollywood. Wow!

We agree with Mr. Gupta! Bollywood could use a little refresh ;)

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.

Sunny Leone Trying Her Hand at Speaking Hindi in Latest Movie!

In some “hmmm, this should be interesting...” news, former pornstar turned Bollywood item number girl Sunny Leone is learning hindi and going to attempt speaking it in her next film, ‘Jackpot The Full Jhol‘.  The film’s producers have hired a hindi tutor to help the fledgling Bollywood star learn a foreign tongue.

Sunny was born in 1981 in Sarnia, Ontario to Sikh Punjabi parents and never learned her native tongue as her parents sent her to a Catholic high school.  She has seemingly made the unlikely transition from full-fledged porn star, including a stint as Penthouse Pet of the Year 2003, to a Bollywood star although ‘Jackpot The Full Jhol‘ features her much more extensively than her previous films did.

Speaking of her attempt at speaking Hindi on film for the first time she said “I have learned all my Hindi lines for all my movies here. Even though ‘Jism 2‘ was dubbed I still had to learn every single word. And in ‘Ragini MMS 2‘ I will be dubbing my own voice. It’s very important to me to learn and work hard to get it right. I am extremely competitive so when someone tells me I can’t do something like act, dance, express emotions on screen, or speak Hindi, all it makes me do is work harder to prove all those negative people wrong.

Well, at least she’s trying as British national Katrina Kaif still hasn’t quite mastered Hindi and native New Yorker Nargis Fakhri sidestepped the issue of her lack of Hindi language skills by playing a half-British journalist who speaks exclusively in English with hindi subtitles in John Abraham‘s latest film ‘Madras Cafe‘. We can watch Sunny’s attempts at speaking Hindi very soon as ‘Jackpot The Full Jhol‘ is slated for release September 20, 2013.

Sunny Leone Happy With New Bollywood Roles

Adult film star turned Bollywood darling Sunny Leone is very happy that she is getting more serious roles in Bollywood.  The 32-year old has a full schedule of films through 2014 and says “I am getting accepted in the industry and bagging performance oriented roles. I am happy that I am doing all kind of films be it a horror, thriller or action. I have three films lined up – ‘Ragini MMS 2′, ‘Jackpot’ and ‘Tina and Lolo’. I don’t have time for anything else as I am shooting them back-to-back.

Sunny has most recently been featured in dance numbers such as the one in ‘Shootout at Wadala‘ with John Abraham, but is taking her acting seriously and soliciting advice from Bollywood veterans such as Naseeruddin Shah on the set of ‘Jackpot‘ in Goa.  Speaking of co-star Naseeruddin, Sunny said “I am in awe of him. He is one of the finest actors that India has produced. He is such a good actor that when you stand next to him, your performance also improves. I asked him to correct me whenever possible but he just laughed.”

Even her husband/mananger Daniel Weber is getting in on the act as he makes his Bollywood debut opposite his wife in a cameo in ‘Jackpot‘.  Ms. Leone first burst onto India’s attention in the reality show ‘Bigg Boss‘ and made her Bollywood debut in the highly successful ‘Jism 2‘.  Sunny also puts any thoughts of returning to the American adult film industry to rest by saying “I am lucky that the audience is accepting me. I have come my way from there. I don’t have any plans as of now to go back there…” when asked about a possible return to her X-rated, small screen roots.  She’s even bought a house by the sea in India!

Look for the busy Ms. Leone to continue appearing in Bollywood films throughout 2014 and keep working to perfect her Hindi!

Sylvester Stallone Thinks John Abraham Perfect to Play Indian ‘Rambo’

Rumors are flying round Hollywood that an unnamed Bollywood director is thinking of making an Indian version of ‘Rambo‘ with John Abraham as the headlining hero.  Sylvester Stallone himself approved of the idea and said “Actually, he’s built better than I ever was” when referring to Abraham according to an unnamed source.  The muscular Bollywood star is coming off the hit film ‘Shootout at Wadala‘ in which he played a somewhat heroic villain.

No word yet what war the hero of a Bollywood ‘Rambo‘ would be a veteran of as the original featured Stallone as a heroic Vietnam War vet.

So what do you think?  Does John Abraham have the muscle and swagger to pull off one of the most iconic ’80’s roles in a Bollywood adaptation?
