Big in Bollywood

USA/English, Hindi with English subtitles (74 mins)

Canadian Premiere - Special Guests in Attendance! 27-year-old American-born Omi Vaidya, a struggling actor in L.A., lands a dream role in the Bollywood film 3 Idiots. Curious to better understand the world of Bollywood, four of Omi's buddies fly to Mumbai to document his big premiere. Within a week of release, 3 Idiots becomes the most successful Indian film in history, transforming Omi into an overnight megastar. But being a national sensation in India is not all glitz and glamour. Aside from the language barrier, Omi struggles with the pressure of his newly acquired fame, trying to maintain not only his career momentum, but a healthy domestic life back in Los Angeles.

Set against the backdrop of Mumbai, Big in Bollywood is a funny and immensely crowd-pleasing film that explores just what it means to achieve ‘overnight success’.

English & Hindi with English sub-titles.
