As Indian cinema celebrates its centenary, Sanjeev Bhaskar travels across the subcontinent to get under the skin of the Indian movie business as never before.
Indian cinema has the largest audience of any art form on the planet. It is watched by a daily audience of over 15 million people in 13,000 cinemas up and down the country, and its stars are treated like deities. Meeting everyone from young hopefuls in the slums of Mumbai to superstars like Kareena Kapoor and Aamir Khan, Bhaskar explores the stories behind some of the greatest films ever made, and discovers how the story of India is reflected in the art, music, dance and images of the silver screen.
This screening will be introduced by Sanjeev Bhaskar.
