Namitha in Hollywood

Namita PicturesDid you hear that Namitha, the glam queen of Kollywood is going to Hollywood? A newspaper reported that she has signed to do “a film titled Maya produced by Gregory Constante and directed by Eric Manning, who has a few suspense thrillers to his credit like Tales from Beyond and Inside Job”.

Well, what is a Hollywood film?

Hollywood is world’s largest film industry which operates out of Los Angeles in US. Some of the leading studios like Warner Bros, Universal, , Paramount, Sony Pictures, Fox, and some leading independent production houses like Miramax,, Lion Gates and others can be referred to as Hollywood production houses.

Why do Indian actors and directors say that they are doing Hollywood films? When a Rajiv Anchal or Jagmohan Mundhra talks about doing Hollywood films actually, they are making a film with some NRI producer of Indian origin as a Hollywood producer. Even the great Aishwarya Rai has done so far only films produced by those of Indian origin.

Namita PicturesAsh’s latest film “Mistress of Spices” was also produced by a little known production company Balle Pictures, Capitol Films, Isle of man film etc. However the moving spirit behind the venture is Gurindar Chadha the London based producer, writer, and director of Indian origin.

Namitha’s “Hollywood” film director is Eric Manning who is said to have done a suspense thriller The Inside Job. According to, the world’s biggest movie database: “The Inside Job is a 12 minute duration short film made with a Canon XL-2 camera on a budget of $10,000(Approx: Rs 4.5 Lakhs) and did not have a theatrical release!”

The producer of the film Gregory Castante is listed in IMDB as “the producer of a video film Perfumed Garden-Tales of Kamasutra”, which was directed by our own soft-porn king Jagmohan Mundhra!

So it is crystal clear that Namitha is not doing a Hollywood film but Maya, a film in English made by a few NRI’s under the banner of “Global One Studios” which has Ashok Kumar (the Chennai based ace cameraman) as cinematographer, story written by noted Tamil film historian Randor Guy alias Rangadurai and directed by Eric Manning.
