Jackie Chan wants India project

India is world's biggest movie market, he says

NEW DELHI -- Jackie Chan is ready for his Bollywood close-up.

“India is the world's biggest market for movies. I want to do a film here. I am eagerly waiting for a good project,” Chan said at Saturday’s launch of the soundtrack of Tamil film “Dasavathaaram” (“Ten Avatars”), with a rumored budget of $20 million.

Chan and Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan attended the launch in Chennai as guests, although neither appears in the film nor on the soundtrack.

Produced by Oscar Films and directed by K S Ravikumar, the film -- slated for a summer release in multiple languages -- stars top actor Kamal Haasan playing 10 different roles, including George W. Bush, and spanning several centuries.
