Nashville IS Bollywood Country.

In a pretty bold & crazy move on the part of the producers/distributors of Americanizing Shelley, Nashville has been chosen as the opening city for the film and in a surprising second act complication, I've been volunteered to help American Pride Film Group get the word out to the man on the street:

The opening weekend for Americanizing Shelley is happening in Nashville and RIGHT NOW and the film needs YOUR support!!!
The film opened on Friday at Carmike Thoroughbred 20 in Cool Springs. As you film buffs know, opening weekend plays a MAJOR part in the success or failure of a film so fellow Nashvillians, if you're going to check out the film, go see it NOW!

As for you major metropolitan folks, DC, LA, San Diego and the San Fran can catch the film next Friday, May 4th.

If you haven't already, check out the trailer.

Also, you absolutely MUST watch the video for Dancin' in the Clouds sung by Steve Azar and the film's lead Namrata Singh Gujral which features the only Hindi lyrics in country music! Who knows, this could be the beginning of a trend...

T-Hype,

I ... I'm going to have to respectfully give my opinion here. It's brownface, cliched in the worst stereotypical ways. Watching the trailer almost caused me to part ways with my lunch, I don't think I could sit through the movie without a posse of people throwing things at the screen.

I'm not trying to be politically correct here, and I respect that you might have enjoyed it, but that trailer ...
