Marigold (2007)

A demanding American actress (Ali Larter) heads to India in order to shoot a low-budget Hollywood film, only to find herself stranded in Bombay with no luggage and attitude to spare. Despite the unfortunate start to her Bombay adventure, the once-jaded actress is soon swept up in the glitz and glamour of the local filmmaking scene and cast in a lavish Bollywood musical. Once on the set, she meets a handsome prince and falls hopelessly in love. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Theatrical Feature Running Time: 107 mins
Marigold (2007)
An overlap of Indian and American cultures is shown through on this romantic comedy. The one special feature was the making of the film where the US director tells about how he visited India and had watched Chori Chori (2003) and from that decided to make a "Bollywood" film. He then watched 150 Bollywood films. I see more and more collaborations between Indian and American film industry including a lot of Bollywood actors making films strictly for the US market {they appear to be} like this one.
