Who'll play the princess?
By Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama News Network
Picture this: A princess, banished from her magical land, suddenly lands up on the streets of modern-day Manhattan. The story takes a turn when the princess falls in love with a man, a charming lawyer. Interesting idea, isn't it? That's the plotline of three Hindi films, all in various stages of pre-production.
Bollywood has, most of the times, looked at Hollywood for inspiration. A number of dream merchants in Mumbai have plagiarized Hollywood films successfully. The latest Hollywood film that has captured the imagination of Mumbai-based makers is the recent hit ENCHANTED.
A top maker is keen on casting a top Khan in the role of a lawyer and has three choices for the role of the princess: Kajol, Aishwarya Rai and Kareena Kapoor. The other maker wants to make the subject with newcomers, since he feels that procuring the dates of saleable actors will be time-consuming. The third maker has already signed two medium-budget stars for the film and is expected to begin filming shortly. He has also altered the script slightly.
Let's see who wins this race… and which film 'enchants' the viewer the maximum?
