Caterina Murino, who shot to fame in 2006, as the ‘Bond girl’ in Casino Royale, is now getting ready to make her debut in Bollywood, in a film with Rajeev Khandelwal in the lead role. Rajeev and Caterina Murino will be seen together in the upcoming thriller, ‘Fever’.
The Italian actor told a New Delhi newspaper that, says “she is constantly curious about new experiences from around the world”.
“No geographic barriers exist for me. When I became an actor, my dream was to discover new countries and cultures, and my career around the world is making this dream come true. I’ve already worked in the US, Canada, Argentina, Europe and China. It was one of my dreams to work in a Bollywood movie too,” says Caterina “But, I have to say, I wasn’t offered a ‘traditional’ Bollywood script [with songs and dance sequences].”
She was quoted by the newspaper as saying that “Bollywood is the largest cinema industry in the world”, it’s a pity that “we can’t see a lot of Bollywood movies in theatres globally. I’d love to see Hindi films get the same distribution as American or French movies,” she says, adding that she remembers watching “the beautiful and amazing” Jodhaa Akbar (2008).
“Who didn’t fall in love with the hero (Hrithik Roshan)? I have also seen Devdas (2002), besides the heart-breaking Salaam Bombay! (1988),” says Caterina. “I’d love to do more Hindi films, learn Hindi, take Indian dance lessons, and shoot in your beautiful country (India),” she added. – CINEWS
