Salman’s Hollywood project stalled?

Is MARIGOLD, Salman Khan‘s first international project, stalled? The Hollywood project, directed by Willard Carroll, made news right from its inception, but the film is yet to take off. The project was supposed to commence filming in 2004 and though the year is about to end, the shooting is yet to commence. The Hollywood system does not function the way Indian units do, Siddharth Jain, Vice-President of Hyperion Pictures, India [who are producing the film], clarifies, We are still into pre-production planning. It makes more sense to devote one-and-a-half years to pre-production work and another three months to execute the filming, instead of devoting three months to pre-production and three years to complete the shooting. Reportedly, an Indian investor has also agreed to back the project [the modalities are being worked out] and hopefully, the film should take off early next year. To be made in Hindi and English, MARIGOLD is about an American actress who is shooting for a film in India. The shooting gets cancelled and she is stranded in India penniless. Salman meets this actress on the sets of a Bollywood film and they fall in love. Director Willard Carroll has directed three films. His best effort has been PLAYING BY HEART [1998], which had a large star cast including Sean Connery, Angelina Jolie, Gillian Anderson and Madeleine Stowe among others.
