India’s film industry has long been the subject of much speculation.
However, a new book by author Rajeev Ravi argues that India’s talent pool is being eroded as it becomes a hub for foreign talent.
The author also explores the cultural and social implications of Indian films being seen in the West.
Ravi has written several books on Indian cinema, including ‘India’s Films’ (2002), ‘India and the Cinema: A Critical Reader’ (2007), and ‘India in the 21st Century’ (2010).
He is currently writing a book on Indian politics, ‘India: Power, Culture and Politics’.
The author was born in Uttar Pradesh, India, and moved to Delhi at age 14, when his family fled from Bangladesh.
Ravish Kapoor, the film director of Aamir Khan’s ‘Aamir’, is among the most successful filmmakers in India.

Kapur, whose work has also been recognised with Academy Awards, has been nominated for several awards, including best foreign film in 2017.
Rajeev is a member of the Indian Academy of Cinema Arts (AICCA), the country’s top film academy.
The AICCA has a long history of supporting film students through scholarships and scholarships for the development of their film careers.
