Ticket to Hollywood - Stars who made it big in the west


via filmfares http://ift.tt/2GZU4RI
There was a time when Indians used to look at Hollywood with dumbfounding awe. ‘Kaash hum aisi filmein bana paate!’ used to be the patent refrain at Hollywood screenings and film clubs. But now, we’ve evened the playing field. Our big-ticket films may not earn as much as their billion dollar franchises, but the gap between Hollywood and its curry variant, Bollywood, has closed down a lot. Thanks to the growing popularity of Indian actors. We don’t need to rely on a filmmaker like Richard Attenborough or Steven Spielberg to make a film with an Indian setting to allow Indian actors a chance at Hollywood. Now, Los Angeles’ best casting directors, agencies and talent managers are chasing our stars. Names like Priyanka Chopra are dominating American TV and films, stars like Deepika Padukone have the confidence to turn down a Fast & Furious and talents like Irrfan Khan can juggle between franchises like Jurassic Park and sublime cinema like Life Of Pi with ease. Our stars have moved on from the proverbial foot in the door situation. Now they’ve got Hollywood knocking at our doors. Our films may have a long way to go before they make billion dollar dents at the world box-office. But our actors are certainly out there earning millions of dollars and fans. Here’s the complete list of India’s exports to Hollywood...

Ticket to Hollywood

Deepika Padukone
Some people are born with swag. Hollywood has certainly fallen prey to Deepika Padukone’s allure. There must be reason, why she had the power to turn down an offer from one of the world’s most successful film franchises – Fast & Furious, when she hadn’t even begun her Hollywood journey. And yet, Deepika still made her big LA debut with Vin Diesel in the xXx: Return Of Xander Cage early in 2017. Back home her film Padmaavat has hit headlines even as filmmakers and agents in LA, can’t get enough of the leggy lass. She’s already been confirmed for the next xXx film with Diesel. Her Hollywood career is sure looking like a big blast.

Ticket to Hollywood

Shashi Kapoor
Those who first spotted a young Shashi Kapoor learning the ropes, at father Prithvi Raj Kapoor’s travelling theatre back in the ’40s, knew he had what it takes to fit into the West and its trysts with cinema. Thankfully, Shashi’s wife Jennifer Kendall and their friends Ismail Merchant and James Ivory made a plethora of English productions, which featured the dapper actor. It all started with The Householder in 1963 as Shashi and Leela Naidu, two mesmerisingly good-looking actors, swayed the West with their talent. Shashi was a regular in Merchant Ivory Productions until 1994’s In Custody.

Ticket to Hollywood

Amitabh Bachchan
Cast in the proverbial tall, dark and handsome mould and with a baritone that could resonate around the globe with thundering intensity, Amitabh Bachchan was tailormade to fit into Hollywood. Why he didn’t make a debut before 2013’s The Great Gatsby will be a mystery for fans all along. But once he headlined the film with Leonardo Di Caprio, Mr Bachchan was the talk of town in LA and Mumbai. Sadly, he’s not gone back to Hollywood yet. But we’re sure, it’s just a matter of time.

Ticket to Hollywood

Irrfan Khan
Irrfan Khan’s first movie credit is a relatively unknown role in Mira Nair’s Salaam Bombay back in 1988. While he spent more than a decade after that in anonymity, it was in 2003 and 2004 that Irrfan really catapulted into the big league. Just as Haasil and Maqbool made him popular in Bollywood, Mira Nair’s The Namesake put him in the international league. Since then his work in films like Slumdog Millionaire, Life Of Pi, The Amazing Spider-Man, Jurassic Park and Inferno have made him a firm favourite.

Ticket to Hollywood

Priyanka Chopra
In the East to West journey, there’s no other name as impactful as Priyanka Chopra’s. While all her colleagues, contemporaries and idols on this list have managed to make a splash overseas, PC has been the only one to make a full-fledged transition. Going by what transpired in her career in 2017, you’d say Priyanka is more Hollywood than Bollywood. Her stint on American TV with the action-packed Quantico and the follow up with her feature debut in the Baywatch movie, has made her the poster girl of Beverly Hills. People Choice Awards, the social media madness around her outfits and her sass, make Priyanka Chopra our ambassador to the West.

Ticket to Hollywood

Om Puri
The late Om Puri’s first tryst with Western cinema came through a cameo in Richard Attenborough’s Gandhi in 1982. It was in the same year that he gave a breakthrough performance in Ardh Satya and established himself as a powerful performer. From there on, he became a go-to-guy for Hollywood casting for an Indian and/or Pakistani character. The Hundred Foot Journey, City Of Joy, Wolf, The Ghost And The Darkness, My Son The Fanatic, East Is East, The Parole Officer and Charlie Wilson’s War were some of his most notable films in the West.

Ticket to Hollywood

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Her first big impression as an actor came with Devdas’ screening at Cannes. Aishwarya’s red carpet appearances charmed the Western paparazzi and media. Her first acting stint in international cinema came with Gurinder Chadha’s Bride and Prejudice. Jagmohan Mundhra’s Provoked further put the spotlight on Aishwarya’s international career. She was the first Indian actor to break through in the West and establish herself as a world star. She also followed up with supporting roles in movies like The Last Legion and The Pink Panther 2.

Ticket to Hollywood

I.S Johar
IS Johar broke stereotypes with a stint in small-budget flicks like Harry Black (1958). That led to a brief role in the 1959 epic North West Frontier, which opened the gates for Johar’s most revered
role in the West. He played Gasim in Lawrence Of Arabia (1962) and a cameo in Death On The Nile (1978).

Ticket to Hollywood

Ticket to Hollywood

Anil Kapoor
Anil Kapoor has been a major matinee idol for nearly four decades. But his innings with Hollywood began with Danny Boyle’s Oscar winning Slumdog Millionaire, where Kapoor played the suave and deceitful game show host with élan. His natural flair and charisma got him a brief cameo in Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol three years later. But his biggest collaboration with the West has been with the TV show 24. The original show was a hit in America with star Kiefer Sutherland where Kapoor played the role of President Omar Hassan. Kapoor then brought the show to Indian TV and had two successful seasons playing the lead.

Terrence Mallick’s Knight Of Cups was nothing short of a coup.

Her appearance at Cannes to promote the film made her a media favourite. She then did the Indian American co-production, Jennifer Lynch’s Hisss.

But the actor’s international career is a lot more decorated than that. He started off as the lead in the Italian TV series called Sandokan (1976). This cult serial based on a pirate’s adventure made Bedi a hugely popular figure in Italy. He did a spate of TV shows in Italy and other European countries. He even had a brief stint on The Bold And The Beautiful, an iconic American TV show. Bedi has also headlined Hollywood’s The Beast (1988).
