John Travolta is considering a role in Bollywood movie, Paani, which is due to start shooting later this year.

Travolta said that the film’s director, Oscar-nominated Shekhar Kapur, invited him to join the cast and that he is considering it.

“Shekhar Kapur has asked me to be part of it and I would like to be part of it,” Travolta told reporters at a press conference of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards in Tampa, Florida.

Travolta added that he believed Paani would start shooting in Autumn. In the meantime, he appears to have a busy agenda. When asked about upcoming projects, he said: “One is a western called Valley of Islands and another is a drama called Criminal Activities, and then a comedy after that with Billy Crystal. […] Then maybe in fall we will do this Bollywood film.

“The good thing about film making lately is you get to do more in a shorter period of time. Nobody is making films over four or five months any more, they are making them over six weeks or five weeks, so you can fit more work in if you please.”
