Anoushka Shankar Music is the first love of Sitarist Anoushka Shankar and movies feature way down on her priority list.

The musician, who is scheduled to perform in the capital the last concert of her five-city 'Anoushka Shankar Project' tour, told a news agency that she is constantly approached for films.

"I am always being approached for films. I am very open to a great film if it came my way but I am not dying to do it. It is second or third thing on my priority list," says the twice Grammy-nominated musician.




Anoushka has acted in Mahesh Dattani's film Dance Like a Man . She says she would love to work in a Deepa Mehta film though.

"I would like to work in Deepa Mehta films which are women centric, has very strong roles and convey important messages. We are friends and I would love it if she approaches me someday."

The 27-year-old, who is known for experimenting with Indian and Western music and who prefers collaboration to fusion, formed her band after her fourth solo album "Rise" in 2006 toured the world extensively to present compositions distinct from her classical concerts.
