An Aussie Goes Bolly

with 7 comments

Bollywood is currently quite the flavor down under: huge posters for Bollywood dance parties dot the University of Queensland campus (even yours truly has been cajoled to attend one this weekend), film crews are welcomed in various cities, and of course, there is the cross-over talent of Brett Lee (also watch this).

Not surprising that enterprising TV producers are planning to cash in, combining the Bollywood interest with the other obsession common to the two countries, cricket. Gus Worland, a cricket buff who last year made a documentary on spending time with the Barmy Army over the Ashes down under, did something similar in India during Australia’s ODI tour earlier this year. The program, An Aussie Goes Bolly, will be aired next month, coinciding with India’s test and one day tours. The TV channels – both sports and others – are abuzz with the promo:

Cliched and overly caricatured (sure to raise the heckles of a few people I imagine) and passably funny. Still, I am looking forward to the actual show.

While one Bollywood, especially have to share this, possibly the greatest disco moves of all times :
