We love the Canadian stand-up comedian Russell Peters (his parents are originally from India).
The guy is absolutely hilarious.
Here’s what Russell Peters had to say about Bollywood and Aishwarya Rai to the Indian media the other day:
I wouldn’t watch a Bollywood film even if I am at the lowest point of my life. These films have horrible stories and terrible acting. I don’t know why your films have singing or dancing every other minute. Either you are telling a story or you are not. Aishwarya Rai is the biggest example. She has proved it time and again how bad acting can do wonders. In Bollywood people can become superstars just by having a pretty face.

Of course, as regular readers of the SearchIndia.com blog know by now, we’ve said the same thing a gazillion times – Most Bollywood movies are garbage and – with very few exceptions – Indian movie stars just can’t act.
Russell Peters is now on a tour of India and will perform in Kolkata, Mumbai and Bangalore.
