imageSydney, (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

release.

"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.
