Mumbai - US director Steven Spielberg was in India's entertainment capital on Monday to meet Bollywood filmmakers and stars of the country's film industry.
Spielberg and various Indian directors were seen by an AFP photographer arriving at the Taj Lands End Hotel in Mumbai's fashionable Bandra suburb on Monday evening.
Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan wrote on Twitter on Sunday that he would be moderating a talk with the Hollywood veteran at an event for showbusiness insiders.
"Tomorrow (Monday) meeting up with THE Steven Spielberg, and moderating a conversation with him, at an event for (a) select fraternity!!" Bachchan said.
The Mid Day newspaper said Spielberg would be holding a "masterclass session" with a room full of Indian directors.
The 66-year-old is reportedly on his first visit to Mumbai partly to celebrate the success of his film Lincoln, which was co-produced by his DreamWorks Studios and Indian tycoon Anil Ambani's Reliance Entertainment.
Spielberg, known for classic hits such as Jaws, E.T. and Jurassic Park, was seen by AFP leaving Ambani's office on Monday afternoon.
Reports said billionaire Ambani and his wife Tina would throw a lavish party in honour of the acclaimed director.
