Mumbai, March 17 -- Last Monday and Tuesday were memorable for the Hindi film industry. Globally acclaimed filmmaker Steven Spielberg paid a short, but meaningful, visit to Mumbai, turning Bollywood's finest filmmakers and actors into fanboys and fangirls, collectively and unapologetically.
After all, how often do you get to have a full-length conversation with a filmmaker whose body of work is so eclectic and inspiring? And how often do you bump into him at a Mumbai party, even at industrialist Anil Ambani's home, to make small talk over food and wine?
The last time Spielberg visited India was 30 years ago when he shot Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. "India's a great plug-in place for me," he said about that visit.
