Bollywood's very own superheros

7 November 2013

As Krrish 3 hits the screen in a tsunami of get-ups, villains and brand promotions, its just the right time to look at the superheroes of Bollywood. Jazzy special effects have been imported from Hollywood only recently but we have always specialized in creating our own bravehearts.

We bring you Filmy Friday, a column by Diptakirti Chaudhuri.

Chaudhuri is crazy about Bollywood. In fact, he is crazy enough to have

written a book on Bollywood trivia. He can be found on Twitter and

Blogger by his first name.
