I am shooting a short film in Hyderabad, India and can't find small size Kino's for an interior car scene. I am thinking about buying some hallogen lights instead (this is probably the cheapest option). Can someone let me know what the color temperature for this light is.

3200K. Halogen lights use a tungsten filament but use halogen to decrease sublimation.

i am not sure what color temp or look you are going for, but keep in mind that halogen lights usually throw off a lot of heat and can be quite dangerous in an enclosed area. May I suggest using a LED light or flourescent light, either of which can be gelled for correction. A work light that you can pick one up most any place here in the US, not sure about India, but probably just as available. I have used a rechargable LED light bar with some diffusion many a time for car interiors.
