On Bollywood: In The Moscow Times

In the 1950s, and for a few decades thereafter, Bollywood was extremely popular in the erstwhile USSR states. Thanks to India's soft diplomacy, Raj Kapoor, Nargis, Mithun Chakraborty, Rekha and stars later on were just as popular as they were in India.

I wrote an essay about the Bollywood and USSR connection for The Calvert Journal here.

This was re-published by The Moscow Times here. Do read the article. There are some lovely, old videos too in the article.
