Feb 9, 2005 - Director Gurinder Chadha ("Bend It Like Beckham") unites Bollywood with the classic novel by Jane Austen to create the wildly energetic musical, "Bride and Prejudice." Starring Aishwarya Rai (The Queen of Bollywood) Martin Henderson, and Naveen Andrews, "Bride and Prejudice" sets Austen's story in modern-day India.

Henderson also talks about why this modern version of the classic story should connect with Western audiences.
ONE-ON-ONE WITH MARTIN HENDERSON: What was your first reaction to getting a script for a Bollywood-style Pride & Prejudice film?
Henderson starred in the prime-time soap opera Shortland Street, where he played the character of Stuart Neilson from 1992 to 1995.
He subsequently appeared in a number of Australian films and television productions including Echo Point and Home and Away, before moving to the United States in 1997, to pursue a career in Hollywood films and to train in a two-year program at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York City.
My reaction was what an interesting idea (laughing). What is going to drive a Western audience to see Bride & Prejudice?
