Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan's meeting with acclaimed Hollywood filmmaker Steven Spielberg, whom he calls an "institution", was one full of talks on the state of Indian cinema and the future of cinema at large.

"An evening with an institution... an evening spent in conversation in the presence of select fraternity and press... an evening of sharing cinema with the prolific maker, inventor, story teller, innovator and one who continues to surprise us with his genius," the 70-year-old posted on his blog srbachchan.tumblr.com, after meeting Spielberg here Monday evening.

Amitabh is particularly in awe of Spielberg's E.T. Extra Terrestrial, which he feels was "endearing".

Spielberg, who is in India to celebrate the success of his Oscar-winning film Lincoln, Monday interacted with as many as 61 personalities from Indian cinema and shared tips on filmmaking.

Lincoln is a co-production between Spielberg's DreamWorks and Indian business tycoon Anil Ambani's Reliance Entertainment.

Expressing his views on the new trend where Hollywoood studios are collaborating with Indian production houses, Big B wrote: "The interest in the US and in particular Hollywood in holding hands with entertainment companies in India, because you felt that the world was 'diminishing in size' due to the ease of communication, and that the idea really was to bring communities closer, build bridges of understanding and sharing, because impressions, thoughts were now instant, thanks to the internet and its various social networking programmes.

"My own argument on the subject though was somewhat different; that ever since the opening up of the economy in India, the sheer volume of the demographics of the region, 1.2 billion, or every 6.3rd person in the universe being an Indian, was too attractive a consumer base to ignore!

"...So the argument being that when a country did well economically, its politics, finance, food, music, clothing … and film, became suddenly, very attractive too, which was why the mention of India, Indian references, presence of Indian actors, albeit in minuscule roles, gained relevance in Hollywood and in American TV."

Among the Indian filmmakers present at the event were Rajkumar Hirani, Rakesh Omprakash Mehra, Anurag Kashyap, Ramesh Sippy, Shyam Benegal, Ashutosh Gowariker, Sudhir Mishra, Nagesh Kukunoor, Madhur Bhandarkar, Zoya Akhtar, Kiran Rao, Reema Kagti, Rajshree Ojha, Gauri Shinde, Homi Adajania, Abbas-Mustan, Rohan Sippy, Prabhu Deva, R Balki and Kunal Kohli.
