Bollywood And Hollywood :When The Twain Meets
Never before has such a meeting of two of the biggest film industries happened as it is now.
An acclaimed British director, along with a select crew of technicians, packs his bags and flies to Mumbai to make a film about a slum boy’s inspiring journey from rags to riches in search of love. A Mexican actress crosses two continents to shoot in a city that just witnessed terror attacks a little over a month back. Choreographers, action experts, cinematographers – the list is long – from the world over have descended on Apun Ka Bollywood, and our film industry – often derided for its naach and gaana – is finally finding global acceptance that was long due Forget about Bollywood discovering distant shores, the mountain is coming to meet Mohammad himself.
