New Delhi, Feb 24 (IANS) Prashita Chaudhary, who is the co-producer of Emraan Hashmi's debut Hollywood project, hopes to integrate the world cinema with Indian movies with her yet-to-be-titled film.

"My focus is to integrate world cinema with our own cinema. Someone has to take a step in this regard and this film is my effort towards achieving that goal," Chaudhary told IANS by phone.

"The shooting of the film has already begun. We have shot certain portions in Berlin and the rest will be shot in Patiala, as the story has a huge Indian connect," she added.

The movie featuring Emraan in the lead is directed by Oscar winner Danis Tanovic. Tanovic is the director of Oscar winning Bosnian war drama "No Man's Land".

Under her banner Cinemorphic, Chaudhary is co-producing the film with Anurag Kashyap and Guneet Monga.

Emraan and Chaudhary recently walked the red carpet of the Berlin International Film Festival. They were there to support Tanovic for the world premiere of his film "An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker".

Chaudhary says it was a "great learning experience" for her as she "got to meet the veterans of world cinema".

Apart from Emraan-starrer Hollywood project, Chaudhary is also associated another big-ticket international project, which is slated to take off by mid-2013.

"There is lot of creativity in India, but it is just that people are waiting to go ahead and do something. The perception is changing and as a producer, I hope to bring a change by producing right kind of projects," she added.
