Bend It Like Beckham Director Snubs Hollywood
Filmmaker GURINDER CHADHA has turned her back on Hollywood - to concentrate on Bollywood.
Chadha, who directed the cinema hit Bend It Like Beckham, gets countless offers of work from American studios.
But she prefers to make British films - and even wants to try her hand at Indian movies.
She says, "I still get sent stuff from America because they know me there as a director who makes things people want to see, but really I'm not interested in it anymore.
"I'm more interested in doing stuff here and maybe in India. My next project will take me back to Beckham territory again, so it's also very English.
"I'm also considering whether to work in India. I have to take into account the kids, who are very young, so we'll see."
