Matt Damon: Would love to come back to shoot another film in India

August 28, 2013 16:45 IST

Matt DamonHollywood actor Matt Damon made a surprise visit to Bangalore for inspecting slums that are beneficiaries of drinking water and sanitation projects funded by his non-profit organisation, Water.org.

Damon, who earlier came to India to shoot for his movie Bourne Supremacy in Goa, said that he would love to India to shoot another movie.

“I would love to come back and shoot another film here. We had a great experience here,” he said.

The Oscar-winning actor said he was greatly impressed by the Indian film crew, who were hired to assist them in the shoot.

"We probably brought 50-100 people with us and then probably employed 50-100 local crew. They were fantastic because there is so much of film work here. You have some of the best crew," Damon said

The 42-year-old actor, who raises four children with wife Luciana Bozan Barroso, is aware of Indian cinema but does not get enough time to watch movies as his children keep him busy.

"To be honest, since my kids were born, I haven't watched movies almost, literally. By the time my wife and I get the kids down, we are dead tired and go to sleep. We don't go to movies anymore," he said.

The actor also said that his fans expect him to follow world cinema.

"I was in Korea a week and half ago and I got the same question because that's another huge film industry there and I said it's not that I have not seen, I even haven't seen American movies in the last 10 years. Hopefully that should change." he said.

Damon will next be seen in George Clooney directed The Monuments Men, which revolves around an Allied task force hunting stolen art from Nazi Germany.
