Happy Birthday: Mira Nair

Born: October 15, 1957 in Bhubaneshwar, Orissa, India

I was seen as an outsider in the beginning and then an object of great envy. All the national directors wanted to be international. They would come up to me and say, “If I cast Michael Caine and Sean Connery, do you think this will make it?” There was this fascination with the international that was totally wrong-headed.
