India calling for Hollywood star Russell Crowe
Mumbai: Hollywood heavyweight Russell Crowe is coming to India and he is set to arrive here in June. Confirming the report, agents of Crowe said that the actor will be on a quick vacation with his wife Danielle Spencer.
But if sources are to be believed, the leading man of ‘Gladiator’ Russell is expected to meet Sudipto Sen who wants to make a film called ‘In Search Of Immortality’ which essentially deals on a German writer’s search for spirituality which takes him to the Kumbh Mela.
Sudipto Sen, who is at present out of India has confirmed that he very much intends to work with Russell Crowe and he is looking forward to discuss the project with the star of the ‘Cinderella Man’. If Crowe agrees to do the film, he will play the middle-aged German writer who travels to the Kumbh Mela to attain moksha and falls in love with a 21-year-old Bengali girl. It is a bilingual film, to be made in Hindi and called Amrit Kumbh, and in English as ‘In Search Of Immortality’.
News about his Indian voyage gained momentum at the recently concluded Cannes, where he was rumoured to be paired with the ever graceful Aishwarya Rai.
However, sources close to Crowe says that he will observe the mannerisms of international tourists in the country and get a first-hand account of how holy places in India are and what the code of conduct at such places should be.
