Massachusetts premiere. The unlikely story of how India’s Jews helped shape the world’s largest film industry—Bollywood. When Indian cinema began, Hindus and Muslims considered it immodest for women to appear on screen. Instead, Jewish women often took these roles, using stage names. These women were some of the most beloved actresses in the country, but few people knew of their Jewish roots. Shalom Bollywood reveals this surprising story through interviews with Bollywood icons, archival footage, animation and, of course, fabulous song and dance.

Preceded by a Bollywood dance performance by the Dancing Boston Divas.
