Something to Look Out For

Something to keep an eye open for; apparently Bollywood is in the process of of making not just one film of the life of the Buddha, but three!

Siddhartha is mentioned in Hindu texts as an avatar of Lord Vishnu and so Hindi movie directors are trying to make movies on his life.

There are three projects under development on the Buddha. One is made by Shyam Benegal , another by Ashutosh Gowarikar and the third is by Pan Nalin. Producer Yash Patnaik who has contacted Shyam Benegal to direct one of the films for him said he believed the three movies will be on different aspects of Buddha’s life.
