Neil Gaiman Said He's Game To Write A Bollywood Musical And Wants Shruti Haasan To Star In It


Posted on

During a Twitter conversation, singer-songwriter Amanda Palmer happened to mention that she probably wouldn't spend money on buying guns or supporting Donald Trump.

probably no guns or trump in my purchasing future. BUT YOU NEVER KNOW.

To which one of her followers replied that there was as much chance of that happening as her husband, celebrated author Neil Gaiman, being involved with Bollywood.

@amandapalmer in a world where Amanda supports trump; Neil will write Bollywood musicals. #willneverhappen

Palmer was more optimistic and hinted that it wouldn't take much for Gaiman to be pushed in that direction.

I bet you $50 neil would write a Bollywood musical if they made an offer. he's predictable that way.

And it turns out that she was right because Gaiman himself replied in the affirmative, adding that he'd want actress Shruti Haasan to star in it.

i would want @shrutihaasan in it...

And she seems more than up for it.

@neilhimself @amandapalmer awesome !:):):)

It should be noted that Haasan is one of the author's biggest fans so it's not surprising that Gaiman chose her as his lead.

@shrutihaasan Thank you, Shruti! (Keep an eye on the post.)

Somebody make this happen ASAP.

if this becomes real whoever tweeted that tweet gets free sushi for life 🍣🍣🍣🍣🍣🍣🍣
