Australia celebrates 100 years of Hindi Cinema

It should have been England that ought to have taken the lead in celebrating the monumental occasion of celebrating 100 years of Hindi cinema, but its erstwhile colony and now one of the most favored tourist destinations Australia has taken the lead to celebrate the occasion. To commemorate this occasion Big B was invited to be the Chief Guest for the function and the celebrations of the occasion were conducted at the famous Liberty cinema hall.

It is not out of blue that Australia decided to commemorate the occasion associated with Hindi cinema. After all, one of the most iconic ladies of Hindi cinema, Fearless Nadia was an Australian (how many of us would be aware about the fact one does not know) and had married an Indian and joined the world of Hindi cinema in 1930s and continued to dominate it till the time she decided to hang her boot. May be, it was the spirit of adventure associated with the Australian character that Fearless Nadia epitomized through her roles in Hindi films and there has been no such star like her who enacted the roles shot through with adventure and thrill as she did!

There was another Australian that followed in her league after a long time, the colorful personality of Bob Christo who was one of the permanent fixtures in the cinemas of 80s and 90s.

Though producers and directors of Hindi cinema have chosen Australia as a location to shoot films, it is not in the same proportion probably owing to the fact that the number of Diaspora living in Australia is less as compared to that in England. Even then the films that have been shot in Australia have made their mark in a big way and among those include DIL CHAHTA HAI, HEY BABY, SALAAM NAMASTE, SOLDIER etc. But the first film that had been shot in Australia in a big way was HINDUSTANI, starring Kamal Hassan and Manisha Koirala and in its wake more such films followed in succession.

Perhaps, the Australian government needs to provide incentives to the Hindi film industry in the same manner as it is provided to them by the government of England and then who knows Australia could emerge as one of the favorite shooting destinations for Hindi films. After all, Australia otherwise is one of the most favored tourism destinations, and once Hindi cinema starts using it as a location, it would indeed have a positive fallout on tourist footfalls in Australia as well.
