This week we have an extra episode for our lovely listeners!
Asim talks to Prof. Sunny Singh about her new book: A Bollywood State of Mind - available in all book stores!
We had Sunny on all the way back during our Thugs of Hindostan review so it was a joy to delve a little into her book and mind.
She sent us a copy before our chat and we absolutely loved the book.
Here is a summary:
A Bollywood State of Mind is a personal, intellectual and emotional journey which crosses five continents and 50 years of modern Indian history and cinema and explores why Bollywood means so much to so many across the globe. Sunny describes how this exceptional cinema retains its hold on the national imagination, how Bollywood has enhanced India’s global standing in the 21st century, and how its characteristics endure despite the social and political changes.Ranging over history, aesthetic theory and politics, A Bollywood State of Mind explores encounters with Bollywood in the market places of Dakar and Marrakesh, in the nightclubs of New York, Barcelona and Mexico City, and in the ruins of Egypt’s Valley of the Kings, Petra and beyond. It shows how the pioneers and heroes of Bollywood cut across national, linguistic and cultural lines not only in India but in far reaches of Somalia, Peru, Malaysia and Russia.
