Mira Nair (“Salaam Bombay”), now settled in New Delhi, was in Bombay last week preparing the way for her next feature film.
The film, as yet untitled, will be in English. It is based on a richly erotic subject and set in 15th-century India.
Initial casting in New York City is finished. Nair is now set to go to Uganda and London to continue pre-production and casting.
