RekhaMonica Bellucci may visit India

Italian actress Monica Bellucci, who was to appear in the role of Sonia Gandhi in a shelved movie, could come to Delhi next month to meet the Congress chief and attend an international women's film festival.

"We have written a letter to Gandhi seeking Monica's appointment with her. If that is granted, there is every possibility that the actress makes it to Delhi for three days from December 17," festival director Shyamali Deb said in New Delhi on Monday.



Traci, the secretary of the 38-year-old sultry actress whose latest film "Napoleon and Me" was premiered at the Rome festival last month, told the organizers of the festival that Bellucci was keen to meet Gandhi. Her chances of going to Delhi for the festival would brighten if she gets an appointment with the Congress President, Deb said.

Bellucci was to have appeared in the role of Gandhi in a film US-based Indian director Jagmohan Mundra had proposed to make. But his project had to be set aside following reservations by the Congress, which said the movie is based on her autobiography sanctioned neither by her nor the party.

Deb, however, said, that Hollywood's Oscar winning actress Faye Dunaway has confirmed her participation in the weeklong festival scheduled to start on December 11.

Dunaway, who has electrified cinemagoers for more than three decades, had won the Oscar for her role in "Network".

Deb said efforts continued to rope in another Oscar winning actress Nicole Kidman, whose latest movie "Fur" made waves at the Rome festival, for the festival here.

Among other leading foreign filmmakers who have confirmed participation in the festival, to be organized in collaboration with Information and Broadcasting Ministry and Delhi government, is eminent Iranian director Samira Makhmalbaf, daughter of leading director Mohsen Makhmalbaf, Deb said.

Veteran actress Rekha will be given a lifetime achievement award at the festival where 130 films from across the world are expected to be screened in different sections, including a competitive one.
