Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp could be heading to Melbourne to shoot scenes for his new movie Shantaram.
The film is based on the book of the same name by former Melbourne prisoner turned Bombay slum doctor Gregory Roberts.
Director Mira Nair revealed she was coming to Melbourne for research and to determine whether scenes would be shot here.
Depp was recently in the tabloids for keeping a bedside vigil for his daughter who was admitted to hospital with a severe case of blood poisoning. [Source]
