Mumbai, Oct 15: Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur says he might be tempted to make a movie on the 1915 Armenian genocide.
“Going to Yeravan (capital of Armenia). Is there an Armenian community in India? Going to Armenia to study massacre of Armenians in 1915 and perhaps make a film on it later,” tweeted Kapur.
The Armenian genocide (1915-23) saw the Ottoman regime systematically exterminating its minority Armenian subjects from their traditional homeland in the territory constituting the present-day Turkey.

Smoking scenes are now allowed in movies, albeit with a warning with the particular scene.
