New Delhi, Aug 12 (IANS) 'Marigold' is India's first big-budget true-blue co-production between Hollywood and Bollywood. The film marks the coming together of Adlabs Films Ltd and Becker Films international.

Directed by Hollywood's Willard Carroll, known for his Sean Connery and Angelina Jolie starrer 'Playing By Heart', the film features Salman opposite American actor Ali Larter who is known for her work in 'Final Destination'.

'Marigold' was my way of bridging the gap between Indian and American cinema. My assumption is that people in America don't know what Bollywood is. In 'Marigold', they'll be seeing it through an American's eyes,' Carroll has been quoted as saying.

At just 10 minutes short of two hours, the film even has seven songs, composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. Javed Akhtar, Carroll and Truth Hurts have penned the lyrics.

The director upholds that the songs do not hamper the film's storyline.

'Bollywood elements have been heightened but they are realistic, they never go over-the-top,' said Carroll.

As India turns 60, the Indo-US co-production sure is a sign of even better times to come and a reaffirmation of Bollywood's growing international clout.
