NEW DELHI -- 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.
