Sanjay Gupta Bollywood filmmaker Sanjay Gupta has been invited to attend the 3 GSM World Congress' mobile entertainment summit starting Feb 12 in Barcelona. He plans to showcase three of his short stories from "Dus Kahaniya".

The multibillion dollar turnover mobile company Vodafone, which is taking the trend of screening feature films on the mobile format to a new high, will have a festival of mobile-format films at the event with 215 countries participating in it.

"I've already shot three of my proposed 'Dus Kahaniya' series. I plan to take the two stories 'Zaher' and 'Gubbare', plus the latest story 'Rise & Fall' featuring Sanjay Dutt and Suniel Shetty if I can get it ready on time," Gupta told IANS.

Gupta is more excited because Hollywood star Robert Redford will also attend it with his short stories collection.

"This festival is prestigious for me on many levels. We'll be taking the short-story format to cell phone technology, and also because Robert Redford will be there with his five short stories collection."

Gupta and Redford will be the only representatives from Bollywood and Hollywood, respectively.

Gupta is expected to be accompanied by Arjun Rampal and Sanjay Dutt - the latter's participation is dependent entirely on whether he acquires legal permission to leave the country.

Said Gupta: "I'm only interested in taking cinema to another level. And our company's roster of directors proves it.

"We've everyone from Shoojit Sarkar and Sujoy Ghosh to Homi Adjani and Deepak Tijori. I am not interested in conventional films or filmmakers. The cell phone format was always the aim for our short stories. That's why we're going to Barcelona."
