NEW DELHI (AP) — Movie director Steven Spielberg says he chooses his work based on emotion, not business.
The multiple Oscar-winning American director told Indian actor Amitabh Bachchan in a television interview aired Tuesday that he chooses to work only on films that call out to him.
Spielberg is in the western city of Mumbai — the home of Bollywood — to celebrate the success of "Lincoln," which was co-produced by the Indian company Reliance Entertainment.
He attended a glitzy Bollywood party Tuesday night, mingling with several top Indian actors, including Bachchan and his wife, actress Jaya Bachchan, and his daughter-in-law, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, a former Miss World who is also an actress.
