The Guardian is reporting that Irrfan Khan has been cast alongside Cate in Indian Summer, which has now been given the go ahead by the Indian Government – as long as the love scenes are toned down. The film will see a 2011 release and will be directed by Joe Wright!
Khan is poised to play Nehru, the first prime minister of India, who served between 1947 and 1964. Blanchett plays Lady Mountbatten, the wife of the last Viceroy of the British Indian Empire. Hugh Grant is due to take the pivotal role of Lord Mountbatten.
