The Journey to Stardom
It is often said that Bollywood reflects the Indian society because of the masses that identify with them. The journey of an artist to stardom is one that inspires many, touching a chord with the audience, by humanizing those who depict our desired version of reality. We explore the story of one such artist in the industry by taking the audience on a journey to stardom, to understand how their personal experiences shaped them and their desire to work in the creative industry.
We also explore how Indian cinema is become the new mode of social activism and shifting long-term normative behaviour. Since commercial success is a big motivator, how can one guarantee box-office success of films that mainstreams social issues? And finally, we explore the causes the audience to accept the new ‘formula’ of entertainment.
