This morning, stars of Slumdog Millionaire Anil Kapoor (who played the Millionaire host) and Dev Patel (who played Jamal) were on Today and The View respectively and both men were, for some reason, asked to dance.
Is it just me, or is bringing up all the Bollywood stuff a bit trivializing to Slumdog? I mean, here's this fantastic movie, but all we want to see is them dance!?? Really?
For the record, I admit I don't know enough about Bollywood to say whether it's insulting or not — my impression is it's a well-loved caricature of what India thinks Hollywood is, but a caricature nonetheless. If I don't know what I'm talking about, please feel free to correct me.
