Quote:
"Bollywood," a fragrant curry atop the cultural stove, is not new. But mainstream America is now taking a peek under the lid of this roiling pot of Indian pop culture.

Dancing over all obstacles

Bollywood/Hollywood choreographer David Connolly remembers as a boy of seven begging his mother to join a drum and bugle corps.

His story is a rare one. The young dancer had been born with defects to his feet and legs that rendered them useless.

<B>A tikka to ride: India comes looking for the hot spice girls</B>
By Richard Jinman
February 20 2003
Sydney Morning Herald

Ladies, you too could be a Bollywood star. Indian TV producers are busily scouring Sydney for six female dancers for a new reality show.

The lucky candidates will be flown to New Delhi, groomed, styled and trained to dance to pumped-up disco mixes of Bollywood hits then unleashed on the Indian public via a reality TV show, a string of video clips, an album and a six-month promotional tour of more than 60 towns and cities.

Don’t dance vulgarly
From The Times of Oman (a first time for CD)

MUSCAT — Top Indian dancer Jaaved Jaffery crowned the princes and princesses of dance at the Sea Pearls Dancemania competition held at City Ampitheatre on Thursday with a word of advice to parents: “Do not let/push your child to dance vulgarly.”

We know Jaaved has always lamented vulgar movements, tasteless dressing and deplorable standards of dancers back in India. So his advice came as no surprise.

“Let them dance naturally; don’t push them to dance vulgarly, twisting and turning their tiny bodies,” Jaaved said, reiterating the message.

What he meant was clear: do not encourage children to ape Bollywood dances, which often border on vulgarity. So let children be graceful without gyrating.

Bombay breakout
Bollywood films are regularly beating American and British films at the box office. How? By Jessica Winter for The Guardian

On a recent weeknight at the Harrow Warner Village cinema, the only film to sell out its screenings was also the only film without a promo poster displayed outside the lobby. You may not have heard of it, but the Hindi musical melodrama Kal Ho Naa Ho, directed by Nikhil Advani, has nestled comfortably in the box-office top 10 for two weeks now. Showing in just a few dozen theatres, Bollywood's latest export - three tempestuous hours of laughter, tears, strops, and spontaneous song-and-dance - boasts easily the highest per-screen average of any movie currently playing in the UK.
