With a masters in computers and electronics and a passion for filmmaking, Vizag-born, 26 year old Nagendra Karri's first movie was screened in the 62nd Cannes Film Festival. His debutant film, "Where are you Sophia" received great response from the Cannes audience and is set to ablaze the Indian screens this September.

Mobster

Hence, Nagendra Karri is here in India to promote the film, and he is talking about his next movie too…"Mobster". This movie is going to be about the organized crime and will move between 3 countries… the US, India and Russia. This ambitious project is slated to cost a whooping 30 million USD or Rs. 150 crore and the ambitions don't stop there. Nagendra desires to cast Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio and Russel Crowe and Eva Green for the international version of the movie. For the Indian version he wants Aamir Khan, Kamal Hassan, Abhishek Bachchan and Rahul Bose. "I also plan to cast a few (other) Bollywood actors like Neil Nitin Mukesh as an Indian-American, Irrfan Khan for a Palestinian's role, and Tanushree Dutta." was his excited statement.

So, what is this "Mobster" really? "Mobster is about organisational crime and its domino effect on the people. The story revolves around an ex-CIA whose life gets affected by it and how he changes the order of the mob. The story begins in New York and then travels India to end in Moscow" the ever smiling India-Hollywood filmmaker said. The movie is set to go on the floor in September and will be shot in many locations.

Sounds fun, isn't it?

He sure does sound like fun and a dreamer too. "I thought, once you get comfortable in life, you stop growing. It was my mom's dream that I complete my education, and now it is my dream that I do filmmaking." He's all set to fulfill his dream a second time. As his first film is already doing great in the international market and is about to be released in India too, Karri is not ready to settle down with just one. "My goal is to showcase India to the International film industry by creating movies that has a universal appeal with an Indian touch." Karri said.

What do you think about Nagendra Karri and his movie ambitions? Inspiring?
