Ashok Amritraj feels that there is a huge global interest in India and Indian cinema and ‘Gateway’ will prove to be a path between Indian and Hollywood. The winner of the reality show will receive an 8-week internship with Ashok Amritraj. Renowned directors like Subhash Ghai, Karan Johar, Sanjay Gupta, R Balakrishnan, Sanjay Gupta, Shriram Raghavan, Manish Acharya and many others will take part in the show. Out of the 18 contestants, the grand prize winner will win a Hollywood directorial debut for a Hollywood film produced by Hyde Park Entertainment.
When quizzed about his intention to make movie in Tamil, Ashok said he does not have any plans yet. Making a big budget movie in Tamil would be a little risky. He and Superstar Rajinikanth are personal friends. They both worked together in ‘Bloodstone’ and since then their friendship has been more than cinema. Ashok hopes that he’ll get a chance to work with the superstar in the future.
