He is again in news, this time not for his relationships but for a film he is doing that is bringing him to India. He is taking the trip this week as he is shooting for his latest Steve Jobs film.
I could almost feel Riya Chatterjee, who lives in Varanasi do a jump when I told her about the possibility of Kutcher visiting her city. Squealing she said, “OMG, I am so missing college and hanging on the ghats for the entire week.”
Kutcher landed the plump role of Steve Jobs, a movie on the Apple genius as he resembled a young Jobs to the T. Everyone knows that Jobs had a special bond with India, no film would be complete without actually traveling here. Kutcher is all set to make his Indian debut and places have been scouted for the film, and the film unit is ready for the shoot.
As the Apple founder spent a lot of time traveling between Delhi and Uttar Pradesh thus the film would project the same. As reported in timesofindia.com, it was in 1974 that Jobs came down to India for the visit with the seer Neem Karoli Baba at his Kainchi Ashram with a friend, in search of spiritual enlightenment. However, he was not able to meet the man, who had already passed and they searched for another man Hariakhan Baba. Both and he and his friend Reed spent time in India using the public transport, trekking to Himachal Pradesh. Jobs also shaved off his head and used to wear Indian clothes while in India.
Kutcher will not only come to India but also wear Indian clothes, and this would be definitely one of the things that would draw the Indian audience towards the film. Keep your eyes open as you might just spot a foreigner who looks awfully like Steve Jobs.
