Nair To Document Beatles' Indian Trip In New Movie

Acclaimed Indian director MIRA NAIR is set to bring THE BEATLES' era-defining visit to the Rishikesh ashram in India back to life in a new movie - with a little help from her friend SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY. The MONSOON WEDDING film-maker's documentary will piece together the Fab Four's music with archival footage and interviews dealing with the legacy of their 1967 stay at Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's spiritual centre in 1967. She says, "It is not just an anthology of the Beatles. It will be more eternal. What they left over is amazing. They were really free-wheeling in their thoughts when they stayed at the ashram. "Inspiration is the core. It is a question of how someone finds it at the least expected places that always interests and intrigues me. In my view, there is no formula."
