Big in Bollywood
Bill Bowles, Kenny Meehan, 2011
USA | 69 minutes

Omi Vaidya was a struggling actor in Los Angeles who was getting by mostly on commercials. Raised in Palm Springs, he barely spoke Hindi and had little connection to India, the homeland of his parents. So when he was asked to audition for a role in a Bollywood film, Vaidya had low expectations. He ended up getting a small, but key, part in the film–a comedy called Three Idiots–and the producers invited him to the premiere in India. A bunch of his college friends decided that this would be a good story for a documentary and followed him. Boy, were they right! Three Idiots became a massive hit, and our young hero goes from being a total unknown to a household name in India, which changes his life forever.
