Film actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is one of the biggest stars to come out of Bollywood.
The Indian Cultural Centre of High Commission of India in Kuala Lumpur is organising Quiz On Bollywood on Oct 12.
Most of us have our favourite Bollywood films. After all, Hindi films were something many of us grew up watching before other foreign films became so readily available to Malaysians.
It must be said also that over the years, Indian cinema has grown to be a force to be reckoned with globally what with its steady formula and talents (like Aishwarya Rai) who have managed to penetrate the Western market.
Well, believe it or not, Bollywood films have been around as long as 100 years. The first feature ever to be made in the Indian cinema was a silent film titled Raja Harishchandra; it was directed by Dadasaheb Phalke (now regarded as the Father of Indian Cinema) and released in 1913.
To celebrate this milestone, the Indian Cultural Centre of High Commission of India in Kuala Lumpur is organising Quiz On Bollywood on Oct 12 at the Indian Cultural Centre, Capsquare, Jalan Munshi Abdullah, KL.
The event will be hosted by the Phanindra Ivatury, who has hosted a number of similar events organised by the High Commission including last month’s Quiz On Indian Independence Movement and participated in a few quiz competition himself.
Interested to participate in this fun quiz? Then find yourself a team member (each team should consists a man and a woman) and get ready to answer trivia on Bollywood. There will be 20 questions on Bollywood cinema, which must be answered within 20 minutes. A qualifying round will be held first at 4pm to select six teams which will compete in the final round to be held at 6.30pm.
