Spielberg's next production to be shot in Kashmir

Hollywood legend Steven Spielberg is to produce a film partly set on the disputed border region in Kashmir, reports say.

The 'Lincoln' director is currently in Mumbai to celebrate the success of the film, starring Daniel Day Lewis, which was produced the director's Dreamworks studio, which in turn is owned by Anil Ambani's Reliance Entertainment Group.

Spielberg made the announcement at a gathering organized by Ambani and his wife Tina featuring a range of Bollywood heavyweights, industrialists and politicians.

Among those attending were filmmakers Karan Johar, Ram Gopal Varma, Ashutosh Gowarikar, Amitabh Bachchan and Ratan Tata.

“We have finalised a script for a movie,” Spielberg said.

“Part of it will take place on the India-Pakistan border in Kashmir. But we’re still trying to figure out the casting, locations and who’s going to direct it.”

Veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan was the moderator for the evening and later tweeted he had had a "a scintillating evening with Mr Steven Spielberg”, describing the acclaimed director’s comments as “simple, honest and with immense candor”.

The 66-year-old and his wife Kate Capshaw are reportedly on their first visit to Mumbai and are said to be staying at the Taj Mahal hotel in Colaba.

Reports say the Ambani's are set to throw a lavish party for Spielberg on Tuesday night.
