The book entitled “Bollywood Ki Buniyaad”, written by the famous Indian film critic Ajit Rai, was recently presented at a special event held at the Indian Pavilion at the 75th Cannes Film Festival. It sheds light on the Hinduja brothers’ contribution to establishing Bollywood as a world-famous brand during its golden age. The book’s introduction is written by Rehan Fazal, Senior Journalist, BBC.
“Bollywood Ki Buniyaad” was published by Vani Prakashan in Hindi and will soon be translated into various international languages, starting with English and French in Phase 1, Arabic, Persian and Urdu in Phase 2. and others in the 3rd phase. Cinematographers and film lovers from all over the world attended the opening ceremony held at the Indian Pavilion of the Cannes Film Festival.
Addressing the film lovers who were present at the presentation, Ajit Rai urged the Hinduja brothers to continue their film activities in one form or another for a few years now. “The Hinduja brothers’ attempt to bring Indian cinema to the world should have been documented much earlier. Today’s younger generation, who love cinema, should at least know what that period was like and how Indian cinema became famous all over the world thanks to the efforts of the Hinduja brothers. I hope the book plays a small role in this. “I also suggest building a museum in Mumbai that depicts this golden history of cinema.”
