Here is the scoop of the month. So we talk about Indian's going international in the film world. Well, now the tables have turned and how much they have turned.
Francis Ford Coppola, director the probably the best gangster film of all time The Godfather needed some outsourcing to be done for his latest film Youth without Youth. Apparently some scenes had to be shot in India but Coppola could not make it here and so he asked none other than Vishal 'Omkara' Bharadwaj to shoot certain scenes for him. Bharadwaj along with his team as well as Coppola's second unit shot the film in Mumbai from September 6 to 8.
Bharadway was very happy with this development and when Coppola had asked him how much remuneration he would charge, Bharadwaj politely declined and said it was an honour to serve you.
Three cheers to you Vishal!
Youth without Youth is a pre-WWII drama where a major incident turns a professor into a fugitive.
