Bollywood movies about Mumbai attacks

POLITICS/ENTERTAINMENT - Filmmakers in India are already exploring over 25 movies about the deadly three-day siege of Mumbai that killed 164 people last month to the big screen, an industry official said today. One of them might even star famed Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif.

Over 25 titles including "Taj to Oberoi" and "Mission Taj" have already been registered with the Indian Motion Picture Producers' Association since the attacks. Many registered titles centre around the luxury Oberoi hotel and the Taj Mahal, whose burning dome became of the symbol of the attacks, including "Taj 26", "The Taj Encounter", "11/26 Operation Taj" and "Mission Oberoi".

Another proposed project is called "Nariman House" after the Jewish centre where the attackers killed a rabbi and his wife. The Taj, the Oberoi, Nariman House and Mumbai's main train station were among 10 sites in the commercial capital targeted by 10 suspected terrorists.

Critics are crying foul, saying Bollywood, as India's Hindi-language film industry is known, is capitalizing on a national tragedy.

Bollywood stars, including Katrina Kaif, have responded cautiously to the Mumbai attacks and haven't said whether they've signed on to any such films yet. Bollywood filmmakers are eager to draw audiences back to the theatres at a time when the industry is already getting hit by a global recession.

"At a time like this, it'll be insensitive of me to perform and celebrate. My spirit is very low." - Katrina Kaif.
