Spielberg plans to set film in Kashmir

14th Mar 2013

Steven Spielberg has revealed plans to produce a film partly set in Kashmir.

The Oscar-winning director said the script has been completed but he is still to decide who will star in and direct it.

Spielberg, who is currently in India promoting his film Lincoln, told The Times of India newspaper the movie would be produced by his DreamWorks studio and the Mumbai-based Reliance Entertainment.

"We have finalised a script... Part of it will take place on the India-Pakistan border in Kashmir. But we're still trying to figure out the castings, locations and who's going to direct it," he said.

The 66-year-old met Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan and other big names from the Indian film industry at a party hosted by businessman Anil Ambani on Monday

Spielberg, whose film career has spanned 40 years, also spoke of the time he spent in India when he was younger.

"I think that people were welcoming of a foreigner, that they would invite me to eat and stay with them, they did not know who I was," Spielberg said. "It was after I had made Jaws and after certainly Close Encounter came up, it was so great that nobody knew who I was," he went on.
