Abhishek Kapoor is set to go international. The Kai Po Che director was spotted with Hollywood actor-producer Stephen Baldwin at a five-star hotel in the city recently. “They had a long chat over lunch and were discussing the possibility of making a film together. They are keen to co-produce an
Indo-American film,” says a source close to Abhishek.
The two also discussed the possibility of roping in both Indian and Hollywood actors for the project, though they didn’t reveal any names. “Stephen also added that if the script is in place and if he feels it is a good fit, he doesn’t mind acting in it himself,” adds the source.
The two directors also spoke about the possibility of multiple film projects, one of which Stephen wants Abhishek to direct. “They made some concrete plans for the film and Stephen said that it would be nice if Abhishek could direct one of the films,” reveals the source.
Their conversation was not just restricted to planning future film ventures. “They also chatted about how Indian cinema has changed over the years and how Hollywood movies have had an influence on Bollywood,” says the source.
Despite repeated attempts, Abhishek remained unavailable for a comment.
