NEW DELHI (AP) -- Movie director Steven Spielberg says he chooses his work based on emotion, not business.

The multiple Oscar-winning American director told Indian actor Amitabh Bachchan in a television interview aired Tuesday that he chooses to work only on films that call out to him.

Spielberg is in the western city of Mumbai -- the home of Bollywood -- to celebrate the success of "Lincoln," which was co-produced by the Indian company Reliance Entertainment.

He attended a glitzy Bollywood party Tuesday night, mingling with several top Indian actors, including Bachchan and his wife, actress Jaya Bachchan, and his daughter-in-law, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, a former Miss World who is also an actress.
