Salman KhanBollywood seen through an American's eyes!

Hollywood director Willard Carroll says his forthcoming movie 'Marigold' aims to show Bollywood to the world through an American's eyes.

The movie starring Bollywood's Salman Khan and Hollywood actress Ali Larter is being described as the first film to bring together the two big movie making industries of the world.




Marigold - An Adventure in India stars Larter as an American actress Marigold Lexton who gets stranded in Mumbai and is forced by circumstances to work in a Bollywood movie. Salman plays her dance instructor Prem.

Although 'Marigold' has several ingredients of a typical Bollywood potboiler - the film has seven songs, for instance - its director claims that the movie is not a Bollywood film made in English, like Gurinder Chadha's Bride and Prejudice was. Rather, Carroll says that his movie is a proper Hollywood film about Bollywood.

An entertainment site quotes Carroll as saying: "Marigold was my way of bridging the gap between Indian and American cinema. My assumption is that people in America don't know what Bollywood is. In Marigold, they'll be seeing it through an American's eyes."

Carroll says he got interested in Bollywood after seeing the Salman-starrer Chori Chori Chupke Chupke about three years ago. He says he conceived the idea of making 'Marigold' keeping Salman in mind as the hero.

Salman says he has no plans of working in Hollywood films regularly, and he did Marigold " only for Willard Carroll."

Apparently, actress Ali Larter had difficulties during the film's shooting in getting right the tempo of Indian songs initially, but Salman (who plays her choreographer in the film) came handy on the movie's sets too and helped her get her dance steps right.

'Marigold' was shot in Rajasthan, Mumbai and Goa. The one-hour-fifty-minute film is slated to release in the US in January 2006.
