A Writeidea Festival Preview Event.
Wednesday 25 October 6:30 - 8:00pm
Bollywood is the world's most prolific movie industry. In terms of sheer ticket sales it is now bigger than Hollywood. In this session Vaseem Khan, author of 'The Strange Disappearance of a Bollywood Star', the third book in his bestselling India-based crime series, will present a talk on the hidden history of Indian cinema, revealing how the incredible changes that the country has witnessed over the past century have often been reflected on screen, and vice versa. He will also explore the longstanding connection between the Mumbai underworld and Bollywood.
Vaseem is the author of the bestselling Baby Ganesh Detective Agency series, a series of crime novels set in India, and featuring Inspector Ashwin Chopra, and his sidekick, a baby elephant. The first book in the series: 'The Unexpected Inheritance of Inspector Chopra' was a Times bestseller and a Waterstones’ paperback of the year.
