Delightful, charismatic, and fast-paced, Shalom Bollywood is a stunning portrait of Jewish cultural accomplishments. When Indian cinema began 100 years ago, it was frowned upon for Hindu and Muslim women to perform on screen, so Indian Jewish women took on female lead roles and dominated this space for decades. By introducing us to some of India’s great Jewish actors, director Danny Ben-Moshe presents a fascinating story about how the ancient Indian Jewish community and the more contemporary Iraqi transplants successfully contributed to, arguably, India’s greatest cultural export—Bollywood.
