Would love to shoot another film in India: Damon
New Delhi: Matt Damon says he would like to come back to film another movie in India as he had a great time shooting 'The Bourne Supremacy' in Goa about a decade ago.
"Of course, yes, I would love it. I would love to come back and shoot another film here. We had a great experience here," Damon told PTI when asked if he would like to shoot another film here.
Goa, where a part of 'The Bourne Supremacy' was shot, "was a great way to be introduced to India," he said.
The Oscar-winning actor said he was greatly impressed by the Indian film crew, who were hired to assist them in the shoot.
"We probably brought 50-100 people with us and then probably employed 50-100 local crew. They were fantastic because there is so much of film work here. You have some of the best crew," Damon said.
The 42-year-old actor, who raises four children with wife Luciana Bozan Barroso, is aware of Indian cinema but does not get enough time to watch movies as his children keep him busy.
"To be honest, since my kids were born, I haven't watched movies almost, literally... By the time my wife and I get the kids down, we are dead tired and go to sleep. We don't go to movies anymore," he said.
He is aware that being a world famous actor, his fans expect him to follow world cinema.
"I was in Korea a week and half ago and I got the same question because that's another huge film industry there and I said it's not that I have not seen, I even haven't seen American movies in the last ten years," he said.
Damon, who was in India on philanthropic trip, hoped that things would change once his children grow up.
"I don't follow any films right now but hopefully that will change," he said.
The actor will next be seen in George Clooney directed 'The Monuments Men', which revolves around an Allied task force hunting stolen art from Nazi Germany.
