Manmohan daughters love Shyamalan, Nair's films


Send to Friend
Praising the Indian American community for achieving most success among all immigrants in US history, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Friday confessed that his daughters loved watching movies by Manoj Night Shyamalan and Mira Nair.

"I am delighted to learn that Indian Americans are now also active in creative fields ranging from media to cinema. My daughters are always thrilled to watch the movies of Mr Shyamalan and Ms Nair," Singh told a gathering of the Indian diaspora organised by the Indian Overseas Congress and other similar outfits.

Shyamalan's "The Village", his fourth big-ticket movie after three successful ones in the past, has captured wide audiences worldwide.

While he specialises in suspenseful twist-laden adventures, Mira Nair has made a name for her crossover projects. After the widespread popularity of "Monsoon Wedding", Nair tests her skills with her next, the Indian-American "Vanity Fair".

Both the filmmakers were among many names that the prime minister listed in his address that paid a tribute to the special place the Indian diaspora has made in its adopted country.

He described the "can do" spirit that drove Indians to top spelling bees and Math Olympiads, that also defined the special journey of many of these Indians, such as late astronaut Kalpana Chawla and Fijian Indian golfer Vijay Singh who toppled Tiger Woods at a championship in Boston.

"In American history, no group of immigrants have achieved as much success and respect within the span of one generation, that too the very first, as have Indian Americans."
