Wesley Snipes looks to Bollywood for next project’s cast

LOS ANGELES: Wesley Snipes, famous for playing the human-vampire Blade in the cult 1998 film, has his eye on some Bollywood A-listers for his next film.


The actor, who’s also moved into production after the completion of his three-year prison term for income tax fraud, sang high praise of SRK and Priyanka Chopra in a recent interview.

Of Priyanka’s smouldering avatar on Quantico’s billboards, he said, “I’ve seen her on the hoardings and have watched the promo of the show. She’s beautiful.”

And referring to SRK as “there’s only one Khan, Shah Rukh Khan,” he said that he will act and work with him one day too.

The two met in 2008 at a party SRK had hosted at a luxury hotel in Dubai, and later bumped into each other at Broadway as well.

SRK seemed keen to take up his friend’s offer:

For Priyanka, Wesley already has a project in mind: “One of the projects I am producing this year is an action flick with interesting content. I am looking for an actress to play the lead part, an Indian actress. So you never know!” he said.
