A casting call has begun for what could be the D.C. area's first feature-length Bollywood film. Shooting will take place this fall.
Writer-director Manan Singh Katohora of Silver Spring, Maryland, describes his film, 9 ELEVEN, as a thriller. The movie will be in Hindi. Producers say they are seeking actors who speak Hindi, along with 250 extras for a dance sequence. But the casting notice says actors of any ethnicity may audition this weekend.
Crew members are needed as well, including production interns, production assistants and assistant directors. The casting notice says the film will be released in India and throughout South Asia.
