Beyond Bollywood: A special tribute to Indian Americans

The Smithsonian will be giving a special tribute to Indian Americans by displaying a “Beyond Bollywood” exhibit this weekend.

This eye-opening exhibit will put the spotlight on Indian Americans and their many contributions within the United States, from the early 1900s to present day. The main purpose of this exhibit is to dispel the stereotypes which society has developed over time about Indian Americans. They plan on achieving this by showcasing the lives of the early Indian immigrants and their part in helping to shape the US. The exhibit will showcase artifacts, music, photographs and much more. It will be presented by the Asian Pacific American Center at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, in Washington, DC, on February 27th.

The title “Beyond Bollywood” was chosen to capture the attention of people who want to learn about the 3 million Indian Americans, who reside in the US today. The focus will be set on Indian heritage and the numerous accomplishments which Indian Americans have made throughout the years, that go beyond entertainment.

“Beyond Bollywood” is the first major national exhibition to focus on Indians in America. Despite the fact that Indians have been here since 1790 and now number more than 3 million, we’ve been largely left out of this country’s history. Beyond Bollywood marks a significant step toward not only documenting the history of Indians in America but also imprinting this history onto the collective conscience of this country.” said Curator Dr. Masum Momaya.

Very cool! The exhibit is said to be up for the remainder of the year.

Pakistani Bollywood actress, Veena Malik and then boyfriend Ashmit Patel were on the radar for getting hot and heavy in the season 4 of Big Boss, but when it comes to intimate scenes in the movies, the diva says “it’s very tough.”

The bombshell parted with ex-boyfriend Ashmit Patel in 2011, and was reunited with him in the erotic thriller,  ‘Super Model,’ directed by Navin Batra.  Audiences everywhere were eager to see the on-screen chemistry between the two, but Veena tells sources it wasn’t an easy task working with her former flame. “It was very tough to shoot intimate scenes together… I have never been through such trauma. A person you talk to everyday, is so close and then you are not even looking at each other. During the shoot of the movie we weren’t even talking to each other, we had a cold war going on,” Veena told sources.

The ex-couple is okay with having a “work relationship” and will not allow their personal issues to interfere with their professional lives.

 “We have come to a point where we will keep bumping into each other, we have to live in the same industry so it is important to make peace. I have great regard for Ashmit. He has been a strong support for me and after ‘Supermodel’ I realized that we can work together. I would love to do more films with him.” Veena said in a statement.

‘Super model’ was released on September 27 of this year.

‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ Set to Open on May 31st!

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is set to open on May 31st after a slight delay from its original opening date of March 2013.  The Bollywood Romantic film stars Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone as the leads, Adita Roy Kapur and Kalki Koechlin in supporting roles, and a special guest appearance by Madhuri Dixit in the dance numbers.  This is Ranbir Kapoor’s second time with director Ayan Mukerji following their initial pairing in the 2008 hit Bachna Ae Haseeno. Multi-talented director, producer, screenwriter, costume designer, television host, actor Karan Johar limited himself to producing this time out.

Deepika Padukone is especially keen on the movie being a smash hit after having beat out Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma for the lead female role, declaring “I need to topple my previous best with Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.” Deepika is Ranbir’s ex-girlfriend so they should have onscreen chemistry by the boatload!  Although Ranbir and Deepika are the leads, seemingly timeless Madhuri Dixit may have stolen the show!!!

Let’s take a look at a the song ‘Ghagra’ featuring both Dixit and Kapoor:

 

Madhuri Dixit definitely adds a touch of classic Bollywood allure to the number and still has moves that would shame a woman half her age…. Not bad for someone who just turned 46!!

The soundtrack was composed by Pritam with lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya and the film itself was shot in exotic locales including Udaipur, Rajistan, Paris, and Kashmir.

The film itself centers around the travels of a group of friends and the fun adventure they encounter along the way.

Let’s hope the film is half as fun as the trailer promises…..
