India West: My Autobiography is for the Next Generation,’ Says Ashok Amritraj

From being a tennis star to a successful Hollywood producer, Ashok Amritraj has chronicled his journey in an autobiography which he says will give an insight on how to make it big in the American film industry.

The 57-year-old movie producer says that when he decided to begin his career in Hollywood 30 years ago, people seemed to be oblivious to the existence of India.

“I entered Hollywood 30 years ago. At that time there were no Indians there. India was not fashionable. Studio executives could barely pronounce my name. So, it was a different time than what it is today. The image has changed drastically,” said Amritraj.
