Shriya Saran, Tara Sharma and Anupam Kher are preparing to star in the forthcoming Hollywood flick, The Other End Of the Line.
Unlike the stereotyped crossover movies which deal with NRI families in the west, The Other End Of the Line shows Shriya playing a credit card company's customer service manager who lives in India, and like any other call-centre employee, she pretends to be American to her callers. But as luck would have it, she falls in love with an American caller played by Jesse Metcalfe (of The Desperate Housewives fame). She then decides to take adventurous trip to the USA without informing her parents, played by Anupam Kher and Sushmita Mukherjee. The film has its breath-taking moments when, even though, after meeting Jesse, Shriya decides not to reveal her true identity to him (Shriya tells him that she is from San Francisco).
The story takes yet another twist when Shriya's parents reach America and bring her back home and the hero is left wondering what to do next. This is Shriya's first ever Hollywood film and her performance in the promos is promising - there's also the hot steamy kiss between Shriya and Jesse to look forward to.
The Other End Of the Line is produced by Ashok Amritraj and directed by James Dodson.
