King of Bollywood : Shah Rukh Khan and the seductive world of Indian cinema by Anupama Chopra( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is a true story of Bollywood, a sweeping portrait of a country finding its identity, a movie industry that changed the face of India, and one man's struggle to become a star. Shah Rukh Khan's larger-than-life tale takes us through the colorful and idiosyncratic Bollywood movie industry, where fantastic dreams and outrageous obsessions share the spotlight with extortion, murder, and corruption. Khan broke into this $1.5 billion business despite the fact that it has always been controlled by a handful of legendary film families and sometimes funded by black market money. As a Muslim in a Hindu majority nation, exulting in classic Indian cultural values, Khan has come to embody the aspirations and contradictions of a complicated culture tumbling headlong into American style capitalism. His story is a mirror to the greater Indian story and the underbelly of the culture of Bollywood.--From publisher description
Dilwale dulhania le jayenge = (The brave-hearted will take the bride) by Anupama Chopra( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge ("The Brave-Hearted Will Take the Bride"), universally known as DDLJ, opened to huge popular acclaim in India in 1995. Audiences flocked back to see it again and again. Directed by first-time filmmaker Aditya Chopra, it has since become the longest-running film in the history of Indian cinema and has changed the face of Bollywood. DDLJ was the first contemporary Hindi film to focus on Indian residents abroad (specifically, in this case, London). It's a heady cocktail of European locations, flashy cars, gorgeous mansions--a feast for a newly liberalized nation--and the hearty, rustic traditions of Punjab. DDLJ has spawned numerous imitations and epitomizes popular Indian cinema today. But, as Anupama Chopra points out, it's a paradoxical film that affirms old-fashioned values of premarital chastity and family authority, underlining the idea that Westernization need not affect an essential Indian identity."--Publisher description

First day first show : writings from the Bollywood trenches by Anupama Chopra( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than a hundred years now, Indians have watched movies made in the subcontinent, sung the songs and gossiped about the stars. Bollywood has been a passion, a popular tradition and a shared national conversation. In recent decades, as India has experienced economic and social change, both the film industry and the entertainment it produces have transformed themselves as well. First Day First Show is Anupama Chopra's guide to this dazzling world of lights, cameras and stars but also to its shadowing darkness. She takes us into the lives of the stars and into the struggles of those who never make it to centre stage; she lets us participate in the making of legendary hits like Sholay and Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge and also the hard-won successes of independent film-makers; she shows us the glamour as well as the murky links with the underworld. There is also the odd story of the royal bodyguard of Bhutan who became a scriptwriter; of the embarrassed Pakistani soldiers at Wagah border who did not allow their favourite Indian superstars to shoot."--Publisher's description

The front row : conversations on cinema by Anupama Chopra( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anupama Chopra's The Front Row hosted some of the biggest names from Bollywood, Hollywood and world cinema. There were candid, intelligent discussions on stardom, craft, fame, relationships, work-life balance and much more. The Front Row broke the mould of the celebrity chat show, reflecting instead the thoughtful, straight-talking nature of the host herself. It brought to bear on the conversations Chopra's own deep understanding of cinema and of the world behind it. This book is a selection of the very best of The Front Row. From Salman Khan to Madhuri Dixit, Priyanka Chopra to Nicole Kidman, Raju Hirani to Rohit Shetty, they are all here. The insightful discussions range from the Rs 100-crore club, supporting actors and villains in Hindi cinema, to the making of some of the most celebrated movies in recent times. While Ang Lee talks about surrendering to the movie god, Amitabh Bachchan discusses what it is like to be called God. If Aamir Khan owns up to how Satyamev Jayate changed him as a person, Shah Rukh Khan talks about what it is like to be 'just an employee of the Shah Rukh Khan myth'. Johnny Depp reacts to Tim Burton's verse about him - 'There was a young man, people thought he was handsome, so he tied up his face and held it to ransom' - Martin Scorsese wrestles with the question of how a film-maker can combine artistic integrity with commercial success, and Spielberg acknowledges how he 'wouldn't know how to make a Martin Scorsese movie' and how that makes him sad. Engaging, penetrating and great fun, The Front Row: Conversations on Cinema is essential reading for all movie buffs."--Publisher's description

White Robes, Saffron Dreams looks at the discriminatory treatment of women in Theravada Buddhism in Thailand. Through the life of a young monk and a Mae Chi (Thai nun who takes 8-10 percepts) the film explores how Buddhist institutions provide a social security network to boys, in a country where a large percent of the population are poor, but fail to give girls access to these facilities - which include not just board and lodging but free education up to the PhD level, considered on par with government institutions. However, a small institute run for nuns provides girls with an opportunity to pursue their education. The film interviews the first Thai woman to be ordained a full nun in the Theravada tradition - Nun D
