中国佛学网海外讯 据《BigNews》报道,2009年5月10日,一部讲述佛祖释迦牟尼一生故事的英文电影《佛陀》举行了新闻发布会。该片由印度导演阿素托史·哥瓦利克执导,由大卫·沃德撰写脚本。

在发布会上,当被问及到将会由哪位演员来演绎佛陀这一角色时,哥瓦利克表示他已敲定演员。他说,佛教在全世界有着很大的影响力,很多国家的人们都对其非常感兴趣,如果他们没有皈依的话,他们就会想要了解佛教,想知道佛祖是谁以及关于他的一切。

当谈及电影的预算时,哥瓦利克表示因为故事发生在2500年前的古印度,当时还有奴隶存在,和我们现代的社会完全不同,所以想要重现这段历史的话,需要投入大量的资金。

据悉,影片《佛陀》预计将于2010年5月在喜马拉雅山区开始拍摄,年底杀青。(编译:子规)

Mumbai, May 11 : Award winning director, Ashutosh Gowariker, is all set to direct an English film based on the life of Gautam Buddha.

The movie, to be produced by the Spice Infotainment Ltd, is believed to be the most expensive film ever made in Bollywood with a whopping amount of rupees 600 crore.

Addressing a press conference in here on Sunday, Gowariker said that the script of the movie has been written by Academy Award winner David Ward and will be titled ‘Buddha’.

When asked about who among the Bollywood actors would portray the character of Buddha in his film, Gowariker said that he is yet to finalise the actor.

“I think the scope of Buddha is global that there are so many countries that are deeply interested, if they had not become Buddhist they are deeply taking interest in learning about Buddhism, learning about what Buddha was all about and keeping that in mind, an international face could do justice to the character as much as an Indian face could,” said Gowariker.

Speaking about the movie’s budget, he said that to re-create the history would be an expensive proposition.

“This is the story that unfolded 2,500 years ago. A time in ancient Indian when you had slavery, you had cruelty and neither that is completely far removed from what we have today. To re-create that is an expensive proposition,” added Gowariker.

Based on the book Old Path White Clouds by a Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thichhat Hanh, the movie will be shot in the Himalayas.

‘Buddha’, with a diverse cast and crew, is expected to go on the floor in May 2010 and be completed by the end of the year.
