Hollywood legendary screenplay writer Paul Schrader is making an English flick with Mumbai’s mafia world as its backdrop and SRK has given his nod for starring in the flick.
Schrader who has written Taxi Driver and American Gigolo, has collaborated with Mushtaq Sheikh and Anubhav Sinha,to make the mafia flick titled Xtreme City, and is going to be made with a budget of USD 10 million.
Schrader recently said, “Spending time in India and working with a Bollywood talent like Shiekh has inspired and excited me to make a film accessible and meaningful to both Indian and American cultures.”
SRK has given his nod for the flick, as Mushtaq is a close friend, who has done screenplays for his flick Om Shanti Om, Billu and the under production Ra-1.
Xtreme City will be an out and out action flick and will be set in “brutal, impenetrable, criminal orbit of Mumbai”.
