Here are 5 Bollywood films which I think the US President should watch before his three-day visit in India gets over...
That US President Barack Obama is in India for a short trip is known to all. He is going to be the chief guest at the Republic Day celebrations which is today. Of course, present at the auspicious occasion will be Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi as well. But here's where I will stop writing about Mr Obama's visit. Because my purpose of writing this piece is not to impart political knowledge, but to add Bollywood tadka to Barack Obama's Indian summit. Well, there is hardly anyone in the world who isn't aware of Bollywood. Maybe I went too far with that but if there are liberties in cinema then those who write about it can take few as well, right? So I am pretty sure the American President must be familiar with Bollywood at least a bit. But if he wants to know more about our kind of cinema then here's are five films which we'll help him understand Bollywood better....
Aamir Khan's PK: Yes, Bollywood is about entertainment but meaningful cinema has also found its place. This Rajkumar Hirani directorial starring Aamir Khan will not only prove that but Mr Obama will also get to know about India's diversity and its various religions in just three hours, which is the best part because it can take years otherwise.
Kangana Ranaut's Queen: The only reason I want Barack Obama to watch this film is because of Kangana Ranaut. Her stellar performance is worth watching. And since the US President loves watching movies with his wife Michelle wethink this would be the perfect catch for them. May be they can learn a step or two from our cool cat Kangy!
Shahid Kapoor's Haider: The whole world is aware of Mr Obama's love for fiction and poetry. In fact, on his Facebook page Shakespeare's Tragedies is mentioned in the favourite books category. And that's the reason why I want the President of United States to watch Vishal Bhardwaj's Haider. It's a must-watch for every Shakespearean fan without a doubt.
Salman Khan's Kick: Like I said earlier, Bollywood is about entertainment and if there is one actor who thoroughly entertains the masses with his hatke antics then it's our very own Salman Khan. Also, he is quite close to Mr Modi. So Barack Obama can watch this one along with the Indian Prime Minister, hai na?
Alia Bhatt's 2 States: Lastly, I want Mr Obama to watch 2 States because ultimately we all are romantics at heart, no? In fact, not many of you are ware of the fact that Barack Obama and Michelle Obama's love story itself is very interesting. So watching this film could bring back some sweet memories for the American President.
