Hollywood's rising star Jason Lewis will play the lead role in 'My Bollywood Bride', a comedy of a star-crossed lover who pursues his Indian woman to Mumbai.
Lewis, considered by many as an emerging star, is known for his role as Samantha's younger lover in the tremendously popular TV series 'Sex And the City'. 'My Bollywood Bride' is his first major feature film after the series.
The movie, jointly produced by Bollywood star Kashmira Shah, her husband Brad Listermann and Vivek Wadhwa (an IT businessman in North Carolina), is a comedy about an American who falls in love with an Indian actress and pursues her to Mumbai.
In the movie Jason plays Alex, a former wind surfing pro, turned adventure novelist, who meets and romances Bollywood star Reena, while she's on a vacation in California. Torn between her blossoming feelings for Alex and her Indian family values, Reena returns home without saying goodbye. Alex, unable to get over his love for Reena, decides to follow her to Mumbai and win her back.
'My Bollywood Bride' will go on floors on May 10. It will be directed by Rajeev Virani, who has been associated with music videos, commercials and other television programs.
