Bollywood influence in rural Ethiopia (Travel Video)

This video is great to watch. Ashray and Zara are a couple who travel the world backpacking and document it. And in villages in Ethiopia they meet these beautiful children who are all great fans of Bollywood. Showing the reach of India’s soft power and how still it is influencing remote cultures around the world.

Before traveling to the Ethiopian countryside, we had no idea that this country consumes Bollywood movies. They do, and they have such a passion for it!! Kids know everything about Bollywood actors! You can only imagine how successful Ashray was with these kids: “Wow, you are like Shahrukh Khan,” someone said.
