Loveleen Tandon, casting director of Oscar winning movie “Slumdog Millionaire”, has made it to the prestigious Women’s Impact Report 2009 of Variety magazine, which lists 50 women who experienced an extraordinary year.
Danny Boyle is such a class act. He has no qualms about hiring a woman as co-director. So glad Danny Boyle has given the Indian culture such exposure.
Tandon didn’t even know about the honour until she got a midnight call from Anil Kapoor, who played an important part in the Danny Boyle’s rags to riches drama, in Los Angeles.
I think it’s a category that celebrates women who have crossed over from one field to another, like I did from casting director to co-director in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, she explained.
Tandon has also been invited by the Queen to visit Buckingham Palace on October 13th. Good for her!
