Bollywood goes global with Hollywood movie deal

It could be a scene straight out of a Bollywood movie. An Indian billionaire sees a foreign rival struggling to raise money as the global economy sinks, and swoops to pick up a clutch of big names at rock bottom prices.

But yesterday fiction became fact when Reliance Big Entertainment, the media arm of Anil Ambani - the world's sixth richest man - announced it would be making 10 Hollywood movies for a billion dollars.

The media group has signed separate deals with the production firms of Hollywood stars Nicolas Cage, Jim Carrey, George Clooney, Tom Hanks and Brad Pitt. However, it is unlikely that the Indian-financed films will contain the key ingredients of a Bollywood blockbuster: tears, singing, dancing, and a happy ending.
