Bachchan film being shot in Manali
Italian filmmaker Jan Michellini, who worked as assistant director with Mel Gibson in "The Passion Of Christ", has made a documentary called "Bollywood Boulevard" with Indian stars like Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai.
The hour-long film is about Bollywood seen through the eyes of a 12-year-old boy, played by Atith Naik, who dreams about movies. His dreams come true when real stars start popping out to chat with him, media reports said.
Some of Bollywood's most prominent names - Amitabh Bachchan, Preity Zinta, Hrithik Roshan, Aishwarya Rai and Karan Johar - will be seen in the film that discusses the dreams of the young generation and how cinema provides it with hope.
Besides working as an assistant director, Michellini is also associated with a jazz group back home. But his passion is filmmaking and he is ready with another project on the Israel-Palestine conflict.
