Mira Nair, the acclaimed Indian director has many projects lined up for this year. She was in Mumbai to promote her latest film The Namesake and finalise Amitabh Bachchan for her next project Shantaram. She is also shooting for a film apparently centered on the life in Mumbai "It's a film on AIDS called The Migration written by Zoya Akhtar. It features Irrfan Khan, Sameera Reddy, Shiney Ahuja and Raima Khan. It's a 21-minute film and it will take nine days to shoot. But that doesn't mean I'm working any less hard on it than I did for The Namesake or would do in Shantaram. A film is a film no matter what its length." Earlier she had approached Vidya Balan and Priyanka Chopra for the same project. Mira is planning to shoot The Migration on 6 Feb. "Mumbai is a city I'm totally familiar and in love with. I've returned to say Salaam, Bombay!" chuckles the effervescent director.
