Slumdog Millionaire London, Oct 28 (ANI): Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone says he loves Indian cinema because of its flexibility to switch between comedy, romance and tragedy in a single story.

Stone said Indian cinema was ‘very prolific and vital’ and he had used that vitality in his 1994 film ‘Natural Born Killers’.

“Indian cinema is very prolific. I can’t keep up. I used that vitality in ‘Natural Born Killers’. I love that the films switch from comedy to romance and then to tragedy. I love that,” the BBC quoted Stone as saying.

Stone is in Mumbai to receive a lifetime achievement award at a prominent film festival.

On whether he would make a film in India, Stone said he would love to “if there was a great story”.

“If there was a great story, if I had Danny Boyle’s luck, I’d make Slumdog Millionaire. There was a good detective story [based in India] written two years ago but…,” he said. (ANI)
