Joanna at the Bollywood Bazaar!

Thanks to Millie Kieve who took this short film at the Bollywood Bazaar shop in the Chor Bazaar, Mumbai on Feb 21, 2011. I had a lovely chat with owner Shahid Mansoori, and bought prints of 'Alam Ara' and 'Hunterwali' - films that were written by my great-grandfather, plus a couple of other posters that looked great. Mr. Mansoori has written books on Bollywood, and has a comprehensive stock of film posters - well worth a visit.

This is a link to an Indian TV programme about early Bollywood, involving a short history of Alam Ara. The Alam Ara part is about five minutes in to the programme.
