Hollywood’s Lucy Liu to film in India

Hollywood’s Lucy Liu to film in India

Emmy nominated American actress Lucy Liu (Charlie’s Angels) is reportedly arriving in India in the near future for making a film around the subject of human trafficking.

This will be first directorial venture for Liu, who has acted in few dozen films and television episodes besides producing few movies. Reportedly set in Mumbai, this short film will star Tannishtha Chatterjee (Brick Lane), who is said to be very excited about it.

Indo-American statesman Rajan Zed, welcoming the India-trend of world film industry, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that filmmakers should also explore many finer and deeper things India offered, instead of just focusing on human trafficking, poverty and crime.

According to reports, Liu’s short, first one to be filmed, will be part of a four-movies-wrapped-in-one project, other two shorts being directed by Oscar winners Angelina Jolie (Changeling) and Meryl Streep (The Devil Wears Prada). Lucy Alexis Liu, 41, was born to Taiwanese immigrants in New York (USA).
