Natalie Portman To Star In Mira Nair’s “Kosher Vegetarian”

Word on the streets of Bombay is that Natalie Portman and Irrfan Khan are teaming up for a new Mira Nair flick titled Kosher Vegetarian, a love story between a strictly vegetarian Gujarati man and a Jewish woman.

Nair is the director behind films such as Monsoon Wedding and The Namesake, which was Khan's first project with her. He's called the lauded Indian director a "majestic multi-tasker," and said, "I love her spirit. It's contagious. After The Namesake, I was sure we would do something special again."

It's a fitting role for Portman, a longtime vegetarian who recently launched her own line of vegan footwear. Despite her compassion for animals, she was thrown from the back of an aggravated horse on a recent vacation in Kenya while showing off the equestrian skills she picked up on the set of The Other Boleyn Girl.
