Bollywood Marks India’s Century of Cinema

,

India’s movie industry toasted its 100th birthday with the release of two films celebrating its humble origins in the silent era and the influence of glamorous modern-day Bollywood. “Bombay Talkies” comprises four short stories inspired by India’s love of cinema and the impact of the movies, created by some of the country’s leading filmmakers. The film’s theme song features Bollywood A-listers that include Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Vidya Balan, Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor. The movie will have a special gala screening at the Cannes film festival this month, where India is to be honoured as the “guest country” in its landmark year.
