Abhishek waits for his ticket to Hollywood
With a decade into Bollywood and a myriad roles to his credit, actor Abhishek Bachchan says he is not averse to doing Hollywood movies.”Why not? The lines are blurring, there`s been a lot of exchange in terms of ability, technical as well as acting, among European, British, American and Indian cinema. If there is a script that is appealing enough then most definitely,”Abhishek said in CNN`s “Connect the World` programme.
The 34-year-old star, however, added that he does not see a big deal about Hollywood. “I`d rather ask when are they going to come and act in our films and dance around trees with fifty people? That would be far more interesting.”"Traditionally, Indian movies were viewed domestically and in the Indian subcontinent and then watched by a select expatriate audience,” he said, adding due to a influx of foreign media here the world is waking up to Indian cinema.Abhishek was in London for the Tongues on Fire Film Festival recently.
Speaking about his association with the festival, he said initially he felt he was a bit under-qualified to be represented like this. “After a while I said it`s nice that the younger generation of the world`s largest film industry is a generation that a lot of people are showing interest in.”
