    Plot: Multiple Film Festival winner; My Bollywood Bride is a fish-out-of-water, cross-cultural romantic comedy based on a true story. The authenticity of the premise, along with the winning combination of a commercial screenplay adaptation, talented filmmakers and an eclectic cast, makes for a solid international movie that appeals to a universal audience. My Bollywood Bride tells the story of Alex, a copy-writer dreaming of being an adventure novelist someday, who meets and romances Indian beauty Reena, while she is vacationing in California. Torn by her blossoming feelings for Alex and her Indian family values and obligations, Reena returns home without saying goodbye. Alex, distraught by the turn of events, decides to follow her to Mumbai and win her back. The trouble is, Alex couldn't be more out of his element on the sub-continent, not helped by the fact Reena has kept something very important about her from him (Reena is the top Bollywood film star – the Julia Roberts of India)! However, with the help of a rambunctious rickshaw driver and some of Reenas friends, Alex just might have a chance at winning her heart. A parallel love story centers on Bobby, an up-and-coming Bollywood star, who has forgotten his roots and started to believe his own press. As a close friend of Reena, he tries to help her by taking Alex under his wing. However, his life is thrown into turmoil when he runs into his childhood sweetheart Alisha, whom he once left behind after a dance competition in order to win a role in Bollywood. Alisha has a lot of attitude but remains down to earth; through her, Bobby comes to realize what is truly valuable in life. MY BOLLYWOOD BRIDE charts the journey of self-actualization undertaken by these four people as they transition from the reel world to the real world. Both love stories build toward the climax of a wedding and a huge dance television event. Peppered with social commentary, humor and a heart-rending finale, MY BOLLYWOOD BRIDE is shot in English with limited amounts of Hindi dialog.

    Movie Quotes: Mameha:”>in voiceover] Remember, Chiyo, geisha are not courtesans. And we are not wives. We sell our skills, not our bodies. We create another secret world, a place only of beauty. The very word “geisha” means artist and to be a geisha is to be judged as a moving work of art.


    Crazy Credits: We know about 1 Crazy Credits. One of them reads:
    There are outtakes during the end-credits

    Goofs: We know about 6 goofs. Here comes one of them:
    Continuity: Spoiler: When Okaa-san says she wants to adopt Sayuri, which provokes Hatsumomo's anger, Okaa-san's cigarette keeps changing its own size, being at times totally consumed, and sometimes not.

    Trivia: There are 3 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • Originally Kashmera Shah was set to play the role of Alisha until she was convinced by the director, Rajeev Virani, that “she was definitely his Reena!”
    • The movie was shot in 35mm with synch (live) sound at over 70 locations throughout Bombay and also Los Angeles. Crowd control in one of the worlds largest populated cities was a nightmare especially since the film includes action chase sequences in the city streets and dance numbers.
    • In the film, My Bollywood Bride, the main character of 'Alex' (played by Jason Lewis) was named after Alejandro Junger (Alex) as a tribute. The real Alex is a LA based cardiologist that traveled often to India and inspired the writer/producer, Brad Listermann, to take a major interest in India and all things Indian.
