Bollywood North

Yesterday was the premiere of two great things: The Bollywood big budget blockbuster, Guru, and the world premiere screening of a Bollywood film outside of India. Megastars, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai, of the largest filmmaking industry pleased 1200 fans in Toronto last night. And to the screams of adulation they graced the red carpet, and the idea that not everyone is watching American, Hollywood films. Canada can learn a thing or two from the Indians, who support their own cinema, from development to distribution, and have a lavish cinema that is known and cherished by many other nations. Whether it’s global warming and globalization in the air, the Bollywood and Hollywood North marriage will hopefully be around for a long time, and 1200 screaming Canadians will feel as passionately soon about their own films. You can read more about this here.
Here's a trailer of the film:
