We’ve been watching Bollywood films for many years in the U.S.
But never have we seen so many Muslims flock to a Bollywood film as we saw gather en masse this evening (Friday) at a Regal Cinema on the East Coast for the screening of My Name is Khan.
Like the varied rats in The Pied Piper of Hamelin, different kinds of Muslims turned out for the 6:05PM show.
Young and old. Men and women. Nattily dressed and not so nattily dressed. Women wearing scarves and scarf-less women. Indians, Bangladeshis and Pakistanis.
We have an eerie feeling that Muslims in the U.S. will give a fillip to this latest Bollywood movie featuring Shahrukh Khan and Kajol in key roles.
That doesn’t seem right.
But then whoever said life was fair.
