A date clash is keeping Hollywood diva Nicole Kidman from visiting India this month. Actor-producer Uday Chopra had invited her for the premiere (in Mumbai) of his maiden international co-production that stars her in the lead role. But, Nicole had to decline the offer, as she’s travelling to China during the time.

While talking to Uday, the Oscar-winning actor had told him that she loves India. “Since we were talking a lot about India, I asked her to come for the premiere of the movie. She asked me, ‘When are you launching it?’ When I told her it’s June 13, she said, ‘I am going for the Shanghai Film Festival’ (around the same time). So, things didn’t work out, but she really wanted to come,” he says.

Uday hopes to make another film with Nicole and “bring her back to India”. “Nicole, in fact, mentioned to me that she has been to India a couple of times, and loves Goa,” adds Uday.
