Penelope Cruz to join Brad in Bollywood?

Tuesday September 25, 2012

Actress Penelope Cruz has hinted that she might make a Bollywood film in the near future.

Like fellow A-lister Brad Pitt, the Volver star would love to have a Tinsletown sabbatical and make a move to the Indian screen.

Penelope told The Indian Times: "I am a great fan of Indian cinema and I would love to work with Shah Rukh Khan. I have the movie rights to a book and we are going to shoot the movie in India."

The book in question is about a Spanish flamenco dancer who married Maharaja Jagatjit Singh of Punjab and became a princess at 18.

The actress, who welcomed son Leo in January 2011, also opened up about whether her beauty made it hard for her to be seen as a serious performer.

"Your looks is like an ice breaker in the industry but to survive in the industry one has to draw the attention to your talent and acting skills," she said. "You can't escape critics who are like watchdogs in the industry."
