The actor has multiple reasons for his latest tryst to the country “Firstly, I have never seen a reception, entering a country, like I saw after coming out from the plane. The music, the culture, the fact that people were so happy to celebrate the culture, it’s a beautiful thing. It was a wonderful reception. I’ve always wanted to come to India. In my field, if it’s not work related, you never get to go to a place. The fact that I got to come to India is something I’ll always cherish. I am so excited to be here. The excitement, the enthusiasm, the kindness and the energy level of this city is incredible”
“I see cultural & emotional similarities between both the countries” says the actor who recently got the rights to remake the John Abraham & Nana Patekar’s blockbuster hit Taxi No. 9211 in Myanmar “John Abraham & Nana Patekar are great actors who made a historic film. One of the genres explored in Myanmar is comedy & Taxi No. 9211 is a full on Hindi film pot boiler with comedy, drama & much more. It is my pleasure to be able to make a film of such a stature in Myanmar”
In the present Myanmar landscape, Director, Actor & Producer Lu Min is definitely one of the elite names in the business.

“Citizens of Myanmar are extremely fond of films & entertainment but sadly we are not exposed to it as much as we should. Myanmar is a country of 50 million people with only 42 cinema halls & 5 channels on television. As an actor & a person with immense love for films & his country I wish to broaden the horizon & bring not only quantity but quality entertainment to Myanmar. Due to lack of exposure to good content, people resort in unethical practices like piracy which breaks my heart” says Lu Min, member of Censor Board, Myanmar who gives a special mention to MIG company whose chairman Guy Eugene is instrumental in bringing a revolutionary change in the infrastructure- Multiplexes etc. of the Myanmar.
“I would like to take this platform to invite Bollywood to my city to shoot & explore opportunities. We will not leave any stone unturned to make it as simple as it can get for them. From physique locations, to production, equipment the film fraternity will provide you with the best possible. I hope & wish to have a fruitful relationship between Myanmar film industry & Bollywood “ adds Lu Min
