New Delhi, June 19: Justin Kurzel was supposed to direct a film based on the 2008 Mumbai attack, but says "unfortunately the film didn't go ahead". The Australian film director says he is fascinated by the Indian culture and is waiting for an "opportunity to work in India" to come knocking at his door.
"I haven't been to India yet. I want to come with my family. I was nearly involved in a film called ‘The Siege', which was about Mumbai terror attack at the hotel. I had to come shoot the film in Mumbai. I was excited by that opportunity, but unfortunately, the film didn't go ahead. I'm hoping that one day I will get to shoot something in India," Kurzel told media over the phone from Australia.
So is a film on India on the cards?
"I am fascinated by the country and the culture. I will love the opportunity to work in India."
Kurzel is best known for the 2011 film "Snowtown". He gave a visual translation to a video game with "Assassin's Creed", and also brought William Shakespeare's "Macbeth" alive on the silver screen.
"Macbeth", which made it to the Indian small screen in May through Sony Le PLEX HD under the property ‘Le Premiere', feature stars like Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, and narrates the story of grief that comes with war.
The director is willing to dive into a project that surrounds India, but is "naive to Bollywood filmmaking".
He said: "Unfortunately, I am very ignorant and naive to Bollywood filmmaking. I would like to know a lot more...I have always been a great admirer of the industry. It is pretty extraordinary of how much people love films in India. I have enormous respect for the industry, which is one of the biggest in the world. It is pretty amazing."
