Sydney, (IANS) Yash Chopra, one of India's most
successful film producer-directors, will shoot his forthcoming film
again in Australia.
Swish Black Cat Films, an Australian production house, will handle
the entire production of "Chak de India" in Melbourne and Sydney,
according to the Indian Post newspaper here.
Swish Black Cat Films had earlier carried out production of the Yash
Raj film "Salaam Namaste" which incidentally was the first Indian film
to be shot entirely in Australia.
"Salaam Namaste's" success triggered an Aussie fever among Indian
tourists, who swamped the capital of Victoria state after the film's
"Chak de India" would have Shah Rukh Khan in the leading role and
would be directed by Shmit Amin.
The Australian film production company expects the Indian contract
to generate revenue of approximately $1.6 million and expects to
attract a worldwide audience of 300 million, the paper said.
