Producer and actor Deepak Verma is in Berlin to raise financing for Johnny Bollywood, an Anglo-Asian comedy written and to be directed by Gary Sinyor.

The film is described as 'Bollywood with a distinct British twist'. It tells the story of super-star Johnny who falls for English tourist Charlie in a Mumbai temple. When he refuses to marry the daughter of a powerful movie mogul, Johnny finds himself banished to London with best friend Chunky.

Sendhil Ramamurthy will play Johnny Bollywood, while Verma will play Chunky. Claire Forlani is in discussions for the role of Charlie.
