Hollywood and Bollywood Going towards a Relation

Hollywood and Bollywood, two most popular film industries in the world, seem to be getting closer considering many of the things. One of the things is that this year many Hollywood actors and actress have visited India for their own purposes. I think most important visit was that of most popular couple of Bollywood, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. This couple came to India with their child and they worked for the movie named “A Mighty Heart”. In the movie, Angelina stared with Dan Futterman. The movie was produced by Brad Pitt’s company Plan B. Some other stars also visited India this year including Britney Spears, Will Smith and Adrien Brody. I am quoting some lines from a IBN Live report:

February on, Bollywood stars poured into the country, starting with Hollywood actor Will Smith, who came to India on a five-day trip.

He was here to launch Sony Television’s movie channel Sony Pix, but by the end of the trip, he told the media that he felt there was a marriage to be made between Hollywood and Bollywood.

He made it a point to sightsee around the country a little and met up with Bollywood stars like Fardeen Khan, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan.

If that was with the men, he caught up with the ladies as well. He presented the Best Actress award to Rani Mukherjee at an award function and also caught up with Aishwarya Rai and discussed the proposal of working together in a movie.

February was not without Britney’s Indian touch. Reports claimed Britney Spears was seen praying at a Hindu Temple in Malibu.

With her forehead smeared with vermillion, Britney and her then four-month-old son Sean Preston prayed and sat through elaborate rituals during the religious ceremony.

Towards the end of the year, reports stated that The Pianist-star Adrien Brody was visiting Rajasthan to shoot for director Wes Anderson’s movie The Darjeeling Limited. He was reportedly accompanied by Owen Wilson and Jason Schwartzman.

It seems good that in this way it is possible to get the way of exchanging culture. However, there are many things to do to really find an effective was to make Hollywood and Bollywood marriage.
