Matt Damon has a special connection with India. The actor had shot his 2004 release, The Bourne Supremacy, in Goa and it continues to be one of the most successful films in his repertoire. He later travelled to Chennai in 2009 and then in 2013. In a recent interview with India Today, Damon has recalled his first visit to India and shared the memories of him shooting here. He also shared his future plans to visit the country.
“I would love to visit again. I have been to India several times and hopefully, the Covid-19 situation will get better, and we will all be able to travel across the globe," Damon told India Today.
The actor also shared his wish to shoot a film in India. He continued, “I would love to shoot a movie in India. I have visited India eight or nine times, but I have shot a movie there only once, which was almost 18 years ago. We shot The Bourne Supremacy in Goa and that was my last visit to India. I have some fond memories of India. It is a magical and beautiful place and I hope to visit it many times in the future.”
Matt Damon is looking forward to the release of his upcoming film, The Last Duel which also stars his friend and co-writer Ben Affleck. The two will be reuniting on screen after nearly two decades. They won an Oscar for writing the 1997 film, Good Will Hunting, which was their last outing together.
In the interview, he also spoke about sharing screen space with Ben Affleck in The Last Duel, and said, “I was deeply appreciative that we were able to do this. There was also the issue of Covid-19. We got shut down halfway through. So, to come back and finish the movie was this extra layer of gratitude, to look at all the people and the crew, everyone was wearing face masks and doing everything to battle the virus."
The Last Duel is directed by Ridley Scott.
