The film also stars Rajeev Khandelwal, Gauahar Khan and British actress Gemma Atkinson. In an exclusive conversation with former bond girl Caterina Murino talsk about kissing Rajeev Khandelwal and Daniel Craig, her first visit to India, and much more. Here are the excerpts:
How did you bag the movie FEVER?
I always wanted to be in Bollywood. For us, Bollywood movies are about dance, classical and historical things but I believe you are doing much more than that. Indian culture is depicted in movies. Thanks to James Bond, I am here. Because the director saw the film and approached me. I was so happy when I received the script as Bollywood for us, is (like) a huge thing. But this movie FEVER has an international appeal to it. It is not the typical Bollywood movie.
How was it working with Rajeev Khandelwal?
Rajeev is an amazing human being. I know he is a very unconventional Bollywood actor. People know if it is a film starring Rajeev, it has to be good. He is very down to earth and fun to work with.
Have you watched Rajeev's films?
No we don't have access to films there. The DVD's are not available and language is a barrier but I have heard AAMIR is a good movie. I want to watch it.
Any other Bollywood movie that you have seen?
I saw JODHAA AKBAR, DEVDAS and SALAAM BOMBAY. But for us, Kabir Bedi is a big star in Italy.
