Based in Los Angeles and Mumbai (as Split Image Pictures), Nuclear Mango’s core business is the strategic packaging of creative, technical and financing partners for East-West collaborative film projects. The company’s physical production arm, Nuclear Mango Studios, finances and produces low to mid-sized budgeted projects that caters to both US and Bollywood global audiences. The company is currently overseeing post-production in Los Angeles on Jennifer Lynch’s highly anticipated creature-feature Hisss starring top Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat and Irrfan Khan (Slumdog Millionaire). Hisss marks the first Bollywood movie to be directed by an American woman and the first creature-feature in Indian film history. The film is represented by WME/William Morris Endeavor Global. Nuclear Mango is also in post-production on the company’s original feature Politics of Love (International title: Love, Barack). Set a month before the 2008 U.S. Presidential election, the story centers on a black Republican in a battle-of-the-sexes romance with an Indian Obama volunteer campaign coordinator. Bill Dear (Harry and the Hendersons, Disney’s Angels in the Outfield) directed the film from a screenplay by Gary Goldstein.
