Master art director Nitin Desai designs for Michael Douglas film!
February 4, 2009 11:05:31 AM IST Bollywood Trade News Network
If we can use a cliche, it's sone pe suhaga for master art director Nitin Desai, who has designed for a Hollywood film for the very first time in his career and that too for Michael Douglas' untitled film. And guess what he would be designing, an antique train! Like he says, ''This is my first Hollywood project. I'm putting up a set based on the Palace On Wheels at my ND Studio.''
The set would be put up in October, after Desai's numerous Bollywood assignments are done with. And those include big ones like Ashutosh Gwarikor's WHAT'S YOUR RAASHEE, Feroz Abbas Khan's DEKH TAMASHA DEKH, Vipul Shah's ACTION REPLAY, Madhur Bhandarkar's JAIL and Amol Gupte's SAPNON KO GINLE. Phew! Looks like Desai is all set to be acknowledged in the international scene as well, what with SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE also being one of his projects. Nitin has also signed on a film with a French director, for which he is yet to receive the script.
However, Nitin feels that it's not just him but Indian technicians in general that are finally gaining a foothold in global cinema. And as if he needs more accolades, apart from Bollywood and Hollywood, Desai is working on the TV show Shivaji. Well! All this is not surprising at all considering he is truly a magician in his work!
