Indian Actors Lack Capacity For Hollywood: Madhavan

Madhavan, who has finally crossed over with international project ‘Night Of The Living Dead: Origins’, says Indian actors lack the capacity to establish themselves in an international set-up. “We have a long way to go before actors in India can establish themselves (internationally) in a big way,” said Madhavan, who has delivered noteworthy performances in Tamil and Hindi films. The multilingual star will be seen as a US marine officer in Simon West’s Hollywood film ‘ Night of the Living Dead: Origins ‘. Of Hollywood, the actor said “Their market and technology is completely different from ours. I don’t think Indian stars have the bandwidth to go struggle and give screen tests there, leaving everything behind here.” Nevertheless, there’s something about Hollywood actors that makes Maddy jealous! “I think the only thing which I am jealous about is that if I was an actor in Hollywood, with all the hit films which I have, I won’t have to work for another day in my life. Even if an actor has two hits in his life in Hollywood, he will never be poor,” he said. He has finished shooting ‘Night of the Living Dead: Origins’, a zombie film. “It has been a huge learning experience and it was very exciting. I was very nervous as I had never shot like that before,” he said. It was the prospect of working with Simon West of ‘Con Air’ and ‘Lara Croft: Tomb Raider’ fame that attracted him to go on board. “It was a Simon West film.

Pampered Passions Fine Lingerie Now Offering Shirley of Hollywood’s Complete HOT LINGERIE Line

The country is on track to make 100 feature films this year, up from 30 in 2003, and it’s increasingly sought out by foreign productions cashing in on the government’s generous subsidies and incentives. New studio complexes are in the works, and cinemas are mushrooming across Brazil to keep pace with ever-growing numbers of movie-goers, many of them new members of the middle class who were pulled out of poverty by a decade of booming economic growth. “The big shift is that now many more people have disposable income,” said Adrien Muselet, chief operating officer of RioFilme, the city government’s film finance company. “Once you’ve covered your basic necessities, bought your fridge and your washing machine, what do you want next? Fun. And for many people, that means the movies.” The new viewers have helped push Brazil’s box office gross from $327 million in 2008 to $737 million last year, according to the trade publication Filme B. That puts Brazil among the top 10 movie consuming countries in the world, said Muselet, and the industry is taking note. With its population of 204 million, this South American giant is increasingly factoring into the major United States studios’ strategic calculations. “When you take an American blockbuster and you set it here in Brazil, even for just a couple of scenes, it just explodes in the box office here,” said Muselet, pointing to “Breaking Dawn,” part of the “Twilight” series of teen vampire movies, which was filmed partially on location in Rio and the coastal colonial city of Paraty. Brazilians flocked to the movie, and the country ended up being the film’s second biggest market. Other big Hollywood productions such as “Fast Five” of the “Fast and Furious” franchise and the Sylvester Stallone vehicle “The Expendables” were also partially shot here in recent years. “Billy Elliot” director Stephen Daldry’s “Trash” is currently rolling. Rio officials also hope movies made here will help burnish the image of a city mostly notorious for its grinding poverty and drug-fueled violence, particularly as Rio gears up to host next year’s soccer World Cup and the 2016 Olympics.
