25 years of the classic Titanic

Titanic was one of the most-grossing movies of all time. It made $ 2.2 million at the box office. Now the director of the old classic, James Cameron, is ready to release Avatar: The Way of Water.

James Cameron disclosed a shocking thing about Leanardo Di Caprio

James said he didn't see Kate Winslet at first, and she had done some historical genres and was gaining popularity as Corset Kate. He wanted a new face and thought Gwyneth Paltrow would be the right fit. But when James Met Kate, he was sure she was the right person to play Rose.

Leonardo was demanding

James was sure not to cast Leonardo as he was very demanding. He recalled an incident where he wanted Leo to run a screen test while James sat in the conference room and waited for Caprio. He noticed all the staff women were in the conference room to meet Leo. It was a hysterical moment.

Checking the Chemistry

Caprio was a charmer, so James called Kate and Leo to check their chemistry, but Leo didn't understand what James was asking.

Meet Kate, but Leo doesn't read

The second meeting was organized, and James asked Leo and Kate to mock a scene. Leo thought he was there to meet Kate, so he questioned James, 'Am I reading?'

James said, Yes

James shook his hands and thanked him for coming.

Leo reluctantly agreed to read

Leo questioned if he didn't read, he wouldn't get the part. James told him about the massive production, and the movie will take two years of his life, and he didn't want to screw that up. Finally, Leo agreed to read.

Thank You!
