There was a time when the tunes of Raj Kapoor’s Bollywood melody “Sir par lal topi rusi, phir bhi dil hai Hindustani” reverberated on the streets of Russia. Times have changed, but Indo-Russia bilateral ties have stood the test of the time even as the paradigm of friendship has changed. A testimony to this is that an artistic community still finds its inspiration from Bollywood movies.
People are India’s biggest asset. They are highly sensitive when it comes to their taste in art, especially music and dance.
