"Everyone in India knows cricket and knows about Trinidad because that is where one of the most successful batsmen, Lara, comes from. He will be part of the film," Vivek Vaswani, one of the producers of the film, said.
Vaswani and his producing partner Mudassar Aziz were in Trinidad meeting with Government officials and seeking approval for shooting.
Vaswani said the inspiration for his movie was Notting Hill Carnival in London.
"I loved what I saw and I wanted to be part of that. I asked myself, if that is what the Caribbean was all about, why not be part of that," he said.
"So I decided to make two movies in your country, the first one will begin in November and the second will follow. Trinidad and Tobago will be a new location for Bollywood movies.
"I see tourism increasing and more money into your country."
