The ten best: Bollywood movies

I love Bollywood. I remember being twelve, standing in front of the mirror, physically dressing up in a Shalwar Kameez, lip synching to a song picturised on Shahrukh Khan and dreaming of becoming a Bollywood star.

I've since learnt to stop chasing such ridiculous pipe dreams and convey my passion in a different way: through my breakfast show on Club Asia Radio. I've been fortunate enough to interview many of the actors and actresses I loved as a child (Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan, Kajol) as well as the rising stars of the modern generation (Imraan Khan, Deepika Padukone).

Listen to my radio show – The Nashta Nooshta Show, every weekday between 6-10am, with all things East and West: music, lifestyle, entertainment and culture on Club Asia Radio 963 & 972am. www.clubasiaonline.com.
