Delhi Belly, with all its poopy humour, will be used as an example of creativity at one of the best B-schools in the world. And here’s why…
Aamir Khan’s nutty movie Delhi Belly is now on its way to being screened at the prestigious Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School. Er, are they starting lectures on cuss words, you may ask. Actually not.
Delhi Belly broke many barriers, with its double entendre song DK Bose leaving quite a few people agape. Their parents may have disapproved but the the movie, its songs and sort-of-gross humour was a huge hit with the young generation. While toilet humour has been aptly used to entertain audience in foreign movies such as Me, Myself and Irene, Hall Pass and others, DB was the first to do so in India. And that’s what got the movie and its director, Abhinay Deo noticed at Harvard.
Now Deo is all set to discuss the creative power of India under the theme ‘India-The Next Frontier’ at the Harvard India Conference 2012 that will be held in Boston, Massachusetts on March 24 and 25. He will be joined by Ritesh Sidhwani who too has been invited to speak at the conference. However Ritesh will air his views on ‘Business of Entertainment’ and ‘New Age of Entertainment’. Ritesh has not yet decided which film he will take along with him to screen at Harvard, but we sincerely hope it’s not Abhinay’s Game. Anyway, isn’t this great? So, chak de phatte, Abhinay and Ritesh! We’re proud of you!
