Director Danny Ben-Moshe gave a very interesting presentation about the early history of Bollywood that most people might not know about. Did you know that the Indian Jewish community, albeit smaller compared to other religious communities in India, were some of the pioneers in building the country’s cinema landscape? Not only directors and writers, but the first female superstar leading ladies were also of Jewish background. Click here to see Shalom Bollywood’s working trailer
